CSR disclosure by Italian companies. An empirical analysis LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Corporate Social Responsibility Disclosure (CSRD) can be defined as the process of communicating the social, ethical and environmental effects of organisations economic actions to particular interest groups within society and to society at large . In certain countries (e.g. France, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Denmark and Australia), firms are under legal obligation to disclose socio-environmental accounting. In Italy firms may opt to disclose CSR at their own discretion in stand-alone reports such as social, sustainability or environmental reports. The book presents the research on the quality and quantity characteristics of voluntary CSRD made by Italian companies. The aim of the research is to verify the existence and describe the characteristics of a system of relationships between methods used by Italian firms and types of information disseminated. Our findings show that a certain level of attention is paid to CSRD by these firms, and that there is a significant difference in the type and quantity of information disclosed depending on whether the firm issues a specific CSR report or whether it simply makes information available on its website.

"The research in this book captures the highlight of a decade of effort on CLHLS study and represents an important milestone in our emerging understanding of how individuals can endeavor to live a long, healthy life and how societies can help them do so."§-- James W. Vaupel, Director of Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research and Professor of Duke University§"This volume will serve as a basic reference work both for Chinese studies and for comparative analyses."§-- Samuel Preston, Frederick Warren Professor of Demography, University of Pennsylvania§"From now on population aging in China and its social consequences, as well as individual lengthening of life and its health consequences will be carefully assessed in reference to the CLHLS. We dream to have such studies for the other large countries on the point of also experiencing similar demographic changes." §-- Jean-Marie Robine, Research Director at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research and Professor of University of Montpellier §China is aging at an extraordinary speed and has the largest quantity of elderly persons in the world. Scholars utilize this unprecedented living experience of human being and the unique Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey (CLHLS) datasets with the aim to answer in this volume the following questions critical to the aging population worldwide. Is the period of disability compressing or expanding with increasing life expectancy and what factors are associated with these trends in the recent decades? Is it possible to realize morbidity compression with a prolongation of the life span in the future? §The first section of the book presents the CLHLS project s study design, sample distribution, contents of data collected, and assessments of age reporting and data quality. The remaining chapters are grouped into sections dealing with the demographic, social, economic, familial and psychological dimensions of healthy longevity. §This volume contributes to the development of scientific knowledge related to the "slowing down" of the pace of progression of morbidity with mortality declines at older ages. Research findings reported in this book are instrumental in the ultimate realization of the long-term dream of healthy longevity, that is, not only living longer, but living a healthier life.

The papers of Jacob Marschak which follow in these volumes are an extraordinary combination of original and fruitful departures in economic and social thought, superb clarity of exposition, and sensitivity to the values of earlier work and even competing traditions. They make us marvel alike at their variety, their quantity, and their quality. But they do not, even so, fully reflect Marschak's contributions to the development of social science. He has had an unusual influence as one who exercises leadership. In a formal, organizational sense, this role has been manifest in his capacity as Director of the Cowles Commission for Research in Economics, then at the University of Chicago, in that organization's most productive and influential period, and later in his central role in the Western Management Science Institute, at the University of California at Los Angeles. I can speak from first-hand knowledge about the first. His special capacities are, first, the recognition of promising new concepts and of promising young scholars, and, second, getting his colleagues to join him in developing the ideas and involving them fully in the necessary tasks. There was an unusual combination of strength and humility in his methods; a display of force in pushing the work along but a willingness, almost an insistence, on treating even the most junior associate as a fully equal colleague in intellectual develop ment, whose criticism of himself was to be encouraged. His leadership has been exercised in the absence of formal positions.


Institutional Credit Supply and Repayment Behaviour of Farmers - 2834693317

Institutional Credit Supply and Repayment Behaviour of Farmers LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Capital has been one of the most limiting factors in crop production in developing and underdeveloped countries. Hence, institutional credit has to play a significant role in liberating farmers from the clutches of private moneylenders by providing cheap, adequate and timely credit. However, credit is not an issue of quantity alone; it is a question quality aspects also. So, the increased flow of institutional credit at concessional rates is likely to be accompanied by many related social issues such as inadequacy, agricultural illusion in the form of mis-utilization and diversion of loan, lack of timeliness in credit delivery and high credit transaction costs. The study of the repayment behavior of the farmer borrowers and its determinants assume importance in this context. As the study aims to blend research tools for practical decision making, the study would be of use to researchers, policy makers, developmental agencies, trainers in agricultural banking as well as extension agents working among farmers for their welfare.

Although the exact prevalence of overweight and obesity are dependent upon the definition used, these conditions are generally accepted to be widespread and increasing problems by health authorities and the public in most western nations. The proportion of the UK and US populations which are overweight or obese, by any measure, has substantially risen over the past decade, and similar increases have been observed in other western nations as well as rapidly modernizing societies (Hodge et a/. , 1996). The physiological, psychological, and social! environmental fac tors which may be implicated in the aetiology, maintenance, and treat ment of these conditions have been the subject of an extraordinary volume of human and animal research, scientific conferences, and techni cal and popular literature. This book focuses specifically on the role of food and eating in overeat ing and obesity, emphasizing the relationships between people and food which may give rise to positive energy balance, and the potential contri butions of specific components, foods, or groups of foods. The intent is to integrate the psychobiological and cognitive psychological aspects of appetite, food preferences, and food selection with physiological and metabolic outcomes of eating behaviours. The ingestion of a particular quality and quantity of food is a voluntary behaviour, and that act, its determinants, features and sequelae are explored here, considering wider academic thought but guided by potential practical implications.
