Many researchers pay attention to the fact thatthe fact that corporate activity is differently understood in the English-speaking countries of the world and in Europe. Some organizations are limited to helping the poor or local communities. While supporters of another, more active approach, believe that the social activity of corporations should be manifested not simultaneously, but to increase the education of the local population, to give him the opportunity to apply the newly acquired knowledge in accordance with the interests. Only thanks to such actions, in their opinion, a stable environment is created in society.
