 Perhaps the most deceitful approach to social
responsibility is Obstructive. Obstruct means
to block or get in the way. So, an obstructive
stance blocks out social responsibility. It is
more concerned with profits. Obstructive
companies are known to pollute, deceive
customers, and even exploit their own
 Manufacturers of fruit juices who hide
evidence about using industrial sugar in the
manufacture of pure fruit juice products this
is clearly exploitation of consumers as
companies are trying to make more juice
more tastier thus attracting more consumers
but by adding sugar they are making juice
unhealthy for consumption.
 In most cases, companies that take a defensive
stance towards social responsibility are not
particularly responsible. These companies may
consider themselves neutral, and they make
profits a more important motive than
performing actions in a social responsible way.
These companies make a point of following the
law to ensure that others cannot take legal
action against them but they do not more than
what is legally required.
 A company may create more waste than
necessary, but it will remove all the waste in a
legal method rather than dumping it illegally

 It may decrease its creation of waste, source
products that are not tested on animals and
pay its employees a fair wage. The company
would keep its records open to the public.
Though these companies are often socially
responsible, they may change their policies in
response to criticism.
 Like an accommodating company, a proactive
company makes social responsibility a priority.
Instead of reacting to criticism, a proactive
company attempts to remain ahead of the curve
when it comes to social responsibility. It may
make ethics part of its mission statement and
attempt to avoid any harm to the environment
or its employees. A proactive company may go
out of its way to institute new recycling
programs, give all of its employees a living wage
and benefits, and donate a portion of its profits
to charity.
 An excellent example of proactive stance is
the Ronald McDonald House program
undertaken by McDonald’s. These houses,
located close major medical centers, can be
used by families for minimal cost while their
sick children are receiving medical treatment
nearby. This program has been widely
