The functions and location of CSR in the company’s organization chart

Should there be a specifi c function dedicated to managing Corporate Responsibility or is it a transversal function which crosses all areas of a company? Is an internal committee suffi cient, should it be represented on the Executive Board, should it depend on Communications or be included within another Department?
