Title: For the love of green: Between ecology and dollars

Abstract: This paper reviews how corporate social responsibility (CSR), in particular its environmental practices, is being mobilised in practice by companies. We discuss that the current engagement with the Anthropocene is more a marketing argument supporting a capitalist discourse, rather than an ethical approach towards business. Thus, we call for a more sustainable approach in CSR, not as a communication tool, but as a genuine response to Anthropocene conditions and shared stewardship, rather than a marketisation of CSR. We suggest the establishment of an international CSR certification entity that would advise companies in CSR practices in the Anthropocene Earth.
