During the last decades the questions about environment and social ethics, so called Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), have increased in importance. It is in the business world highly important for the corporations to show the public that the company care about these questions. A common approach nowadays is to outsource productions to other countries resulting in that suppliers have a great part of the work with CSR. CSR as a trend is a rather new phenomenon, and therefore interesting to see how the corporations handle these questions and how the approach looks like. The purpose with this study is to show how corporations which are recommended by CSR organizations for their handling regarding these questions approach CSR and how the work look like in the supply chain. During the spring of 2012 (may 2012) the authors interviewed involved personnel through Skype. Semi structured questions were asked to give the respondent an opportunity to self describe the approach at their company. Some conclusions were made about these approaches. In both companies the importance of communication to the suppliers was obvious. Despite that the companies had different working methods they are both looking for the same results. The companies are looking for a healthy relation with the suppliers through dialogue which generates working methods based on sustainability and profit in the entire supply chain.
