Abstract: The main goal of the article is to describe the issue of social responsibility of agribusiness companies in the context of sustainable development. Social responsibility in business is the concept of the organization's voluntary consideration for social and environmental aspects while conducting business. The article
presents the issues of CSR and sustainable development in a theoretical approach and the results of research carried out by means of a diagnostic survey in 2016 in 200 Polish agribusiness companies, concerning their practical application
of the idea of social responsibility in their functioning. The survey questionnaire was targeted at the management staff of 210 deliberately selected agribusiness companies from Kujawsko-pomorskie and Pomorskie Provinces of Poland.
The feedback, in the form of correctly completed questionnaires, was obtained from 200 respondents. The data thus obtained was then analyzed statistically. Research has shown that the state of knowledge about CSR and sustainable
development is quite good, however, daily practice is slightly different from the theory and knowledge.
