Jorge Martín Cordero Torres, Juquila Araceli González Nolasco, Noé Hernández Cortez

This study is based on the concept social responsibility in business (SRB). Its objective is to identify SRB standards by examining several definitions of the concept, as well as public policy oriented to promoting SRB rights among wind energy businesses. Specifically, typical characteristics of public policy in the voluntary and obligatory promotion of SRB rights are examined in two wind energy businesses.
