Message: Social responsibility is a framework of ethics in which an individual collaborates and works with other organizations and individuals for the betterment of the community. There are numerous ways in which an organization can exhibit social responsibility; for instance, by promoting volunteerism, facilitating donations, employing ethical employment practices, and implementing environmental improvements. It introduces the subjective obligation that entails maintaining a delicate equilibrium between one’s ecosystem and the economy, as well as the potential compromises that may be made between economic progress and societal and environmental wellbeing. This transcends business organizations and affects all individuals whose actions influence the environment. 
Solve the following questions using Excel QM. (2×4 = 8 marks)
