Abstract: As one of the famous business writers Peter Drucker implied “Profit for a company is like oxygen for a person; if you don\'t have enough of it, you are out of the game. (Senge, 2008, p:326) In our world, most of the companies operate as if their purpose is breathing. Certainly, the purpose of a company is to maximize profit but also they can make both profit and contribution. (Senge, 2008) This is the point where we can start talking about CSR because it is the idea of businesses to be aware of how they can contribute to their social and economical environment. In this paper, I will try to imply the definition and the importance of R&D in pharmaceutical business, concluding that R&D is CSR, but also by illustrating how closely R&D is linked to the profit that the company can obtain from its investments.
