However more frequently it has been shown, by theoretical and practices approaches, that the integration of Social Responsibilities Practices (SRP) in life matrix of corporations allows them to define their foothold in the market through differentiation, positive image/reputation, competitive advantage, social integration and legitimacy and effective management. The primary goal of this study is to identify (by means of inquiries) and analyze - quantitatively (inquiry and description) and qualitatively (interpretative analysis and associations) - the SRP on a sample of 31 enterprises in Cape Verde, through their managers descriptions. It is a micro sociological study by means of the hypothetic-deductive method approach of the phenomenon of Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) in Cape Verde (Sampieri et al., 2006, p. 8-9). The search data allow us to verify that in the most of the interviewed enterprises (33%) the SRP have a regular character but not integrate on the business strategy; Bigger companies show larger frequencies on the SRP. So, the companies in Cape Verde are not being effectives, because they don’t use the CSR like a practice of management business and as a strategic recourse to aggregate increase value.
