Dahlee S. Pascua.

Abstract
Corporate social responsibility is a way to encourage business firms to perform in a manner appropriate to the desires of the stakeholders, thus causing them to act responsibly for the benefit of the business and society through creating a sustainable social, environmental, and economic development that could, in turn, gain positive image and reputation. This study aimed to evaluate the Corporate Social Responsibility practices of business establishments in Region 02, Philippines, which were recipients of the Department of Trade and Industryís Bagwis Award. Qualitative research approach was employed through a semi-structured interview among the selected respondents, after which recorded interviews were transcribed and analyzed thematically. Findings revealed that CSR practices among business establishments in Region 2 were still developing and that the philanthropic dimension were found to be less sustainable and did not gain so much impact to community development, as well as to firmís reputation. It was also revealed that the identified practices were focused on schools, community, employee-welfare, and companyís economic responsibility, whilst the possible best practices contributed to the development of education, entrepreneurs, environment, skills enhancement, and employee-welfare. Result of the study may be used as benchmark for CSR initiatives of business establishments, banks, hospitals, schools, mining, and other industries. Future research may also focus on the concerns and issues in the implementation of CSR practices.

Key words: CSR, CSR best practices, philanthropic, ethical, legal, economic, business establishments
