Chapter 12: Toward a more comprehensive CSR scorecard development for multinational enterprises

Ayse Ozturk


The debate on how multinational enterprises (MNEs) affect the economy, society, and environment has been growing. Host country governments are searching for ways to measure the impacts of MNEs. Accordingly, MNEs are seeking ways to validate their value contribution in host markets. However, it is not straightforward for businesses to delineate and communicate their impacts. Similarly, it is not a simple task for host market governments to evaluate the impacts of MNEs. Thus, there is a need to develop a comprehensive CSR scorecard template from the perspective of the host markets. This study represents a call to this gap by developing an MNE local impacts scorecard that can integrate and present impacts created by MNEs in host economies. The proposed scorecard helps companies to efficiently allocate resources and communicate with the public and institutions. Likewise, host governments and other stakeholders can also monitor the impacts of MNEs in their markets.
