Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a tool used by companies to establish positive relations with their surroundings and gain a competitive edge. This also relates to centres providing services, such as seaports. In the past, these served as loading/off-loading and storage stations as well as ship terminals. At present, they have become versatile complexes administering land and infrastructure as well as playing host to numerous enterprises which offer a wide range of services to carriers and freight forwarders. Not only individual businesses but also entire port service hubs can, or even should, be socially responsible nowadays. The topic of this research is the social responsibility of sea ports. This article will discuss the social responsibility of the Port of Gdynia. The objective is to present socially responsible actions taken by Gdynia Port Authority SA and the largest port operators and to assess the progress made on the implementation of CSR there.
