According to Mimran, the use of “Joe” helped with the private label feel of his brand and “Fresh” appealed to customers since it was originally sold in a supermarket setting. In 2007, Mimran decided to extend his line to sleepwear, lingerie and children’s wear because of its exceedingly well success its first year on the market. Once again, in 2008 and 2009, sunglasses and cosmetics were also added to the line. At this point, Joe Fresh had become the second largest selling clothing label in Canada (CITE). Within its first year and a half, Joe Fresh had chalked up $400 million in retail sales which led to the first standalone store in Vancouver in 2010.
Good CC, for example, a company CEO of a HCO defines good corporate citizenship as meeting the growth and demands placed on health companies by society in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner (“The Power to Change: Mobilizing board leadership to deliver sustainable value to markets and society”, 2001).

They also gave preference to small retailers who were specifically marketing customized designs.
This reflective journal argues that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an important factor to achieve successful performance within organisation and it is also similar responsibility being financially successful. As a person who worked in Business Strategic Planning and Development department of a big bank, I felt initially that CSR and the Law would have been a revision of Sustainability -which is related to the environment as many resources are irreversible and finite in quantity- with a twist of ethics. I believed that the phrases “fit and proper person” and “of good character” would easily translate to directors and companies and that the subject was merely catering for non-lawyers.

Is ethical behaviour though something we learn or is it part of our character?
Today, HP’s sustainability priorities reflect their commitment to balancing corporate values and business goals with the company’s impact on society and the environment. Summary HP has been working on environmental and sustainability initiatives for a very long time, well before such issues were of mainstream interest. Mark Hurd, HP’s CEO, in his 2009 letter to his stakeholders, 2 understates HP’s sustainability activities. Shelley Zimmer, HP Executive, responsible for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) seems to agree that Hurd takes a conservative approach when she says “we are only now beginning to understand how to communicate the details to our stakeholders and right now we are reflecting a somewhat modest approach to talking about our CSR achievements.”3 In his 2009 letter to his Shareholders, Hurd, mentions in an understated way many of HP’s CSR activities and says HP is helping to “Build a Better World”. Hurd does note, without mentioning specifics, that HP’s 2009 sustainability measurements were recognized by Newsweek and ranked # 1 among the 500 largest corporations in the United States.
