LEGAL SYSTEM REQUIRES PROFIT "A business corporation is organized and carried on primarily for the profit of the stockholders. The powers of the directors are to be employed for that end. The discretion of directors is to be exercised in the choice of means to attain that end, and does not extend to a change in the end itself, to the reduction of profits, or to the non-distribution of profits among stockholders in order to devote them to other purposes." benefitcorp.net/storage/Benefit_Corp_vs_Traditional_Corporations.pdf

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY Corporate social responsibility encompasses not only what companies do with their profits, but also how they make them. It goes beyond philanthropy and compliance and addresses how companies manage their economic, social, and environmental impacts, as well as their relationships in all key spheres of influence: the workplace, the marketplace, the supply chain, the community, and the public policy realm. hks.harvard.edu/m-rcbg/CSRI/init_define.html
