Abstract This paper presents the results of a research investigating the attitudes of businesses towards Corporate Social responsibility (CSR) and the CSR practices in businesses. The paper is based on data collected through in-depth interviews of senior level managers of 11 large businesses operating in Bangladesh. The findings demonstrates that although businesses are, to a different degree, aware of the concept of CSR and that they have a positive attitude to engage in CSR with an intention to contribute to addressing wider social and community needs; the CSR practices are seldom integrated into business strategies. The findings of the paper have some important implications for businesses and organizations working to promote CSR among businesses in developing countries.
