Globalization is a broad-spectrum concept in its content and scope. It is not a fashionable word only. There are many causes of globalization. Human desire for cognition and transformation of living conditions can be considered as the main causes. Globalization has its economic causes; it enables higher forms of linking the material and non-material values together. The influence of science and technology is also the cause of the evolution of globalization. Globalization also has communication, human and technical dimensions. Last but not least, globalization requires and enables social and ethical approaches as a decisive condition of social existence and human life. History shows that adequate attention is not paid to people. The two world wars in the last century and the wars waged in this century bear witness to that, often thanks to the so-called advanced societies. The important international organizations such as the UNO, the EU and NATO have been established to foster cooperation and peace relations between states and continents to build a responsible global society In recent years, there has been an effort to create socially responsible companies. The whole society as for the world, continents, countries, regions, municipalities, companies and families must be socially responsible. Management belongs to human consciousness and being. Skilful management is science and art; it is a basic condition for the survival of civilization. Science and technology, and its implications, have advantages and also considerable risks. They have a share in the safety or danger of a society. Our society is increasingly determined by environmental factors such as health, air, water, soil, food, raw materials, energy and transport.
