ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the gap between where existing legal remedies for environmental justice arguable appear to end, and where the private sector commitment to corporate responsibility is said to begin. Certain academic theories of corporate social responsibility shed a potentially broad net, highlighting all of the social costs of corporate activity, and therefore adapt, for example, environmental or political concerns as well as stakeholder interests. Environmental justice seeks to address the lack of equal environmental protection suffered by minority and low-income communities.
