This article reviews how corporate social responsibility, in particular its environmental practices, is being mobilised in practice by companies. We discuss that the current engagement with the Anthropocene is more a marketing argument supporting a capitalist discourse, rather than an ethical approach towards business. Thus, we call for a more sustainable approach in corporate social responsibility, not as a communication tool, but as a genuine response to Anthropocene conditions and shared stewardship, rather than a marketisation of corporate social responsibility. We suggest the establishment of an international corporate social responsibility certification entity that would advise companies in corporate social responsibility practices in the Anthropocene Earth.
