It stimulates business entities’ and society’s skepticism in regard to CSR and its‘ constituents fragmentary use are determined due to the expensiveness of implementation of CSR. The problem is that business entities do not recognize CSR’s benefits therefore enterprises do not tend to change the governance practice by investing into integrated implementation of CSR. The aim is to deliver how CSR’s constituents assert in the environment of Lithuania enterprises. The analysis of CSR literature and the statistical data of Lithuanian enterprises, which belong to the Lithuanian National Network of Responsible Business as well as United Nations Global Agreement, were made. CSR constituents‘ use in Lithuania delivered.
