Since the rise of the concept of corporate social responsibility in the developed countries of the West in the 1980s, enterprises have gradually taken the initiative to assume social responsibilities and are more consciously responsible to the majority of stakeholders under the supervision and promotion of the government, non-governmental organizations and the public. However, with the evolution of time, the development of CSR is also facing new difficulties such as inefficiency and low project sustainability. The government's efforts to strengthen guidance, companies to improve their responsibility, and embrace new technologies such as short video and artificial intelligence have become the key to solving these problems.
