    Re: synonyms for TAKING INTO ACCOUNT

    I agree with "taking into account" but you seem to resist it.
    How about "in the context of CSR"?

    (I think Lou Sagar might be a better thinker than writer. There shouldn't be a comma before the verb "is" and we are usually "aware of" issues not "aware to" issues. Profits must be opimized within the greater context of corporate responsibility.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: synonyms for TAKING INTO ACCOUNT

    I appreciate your input. I've already submitted the article. It's going to take some time before I can see the final version (after the article has been edited by a native speaker who knows the field). I had to go with "inclusive of", since it seems the most suitable expression for that context. My decision was based on what I'd seen online - on websites run by native speakers of English.
    I also checked a couple of dictionaries online and one of them had this (as an idiom):

    inclusive of
    including; also taking into account

    Re: synonyms for TAKING INTO ACCOUNT

    "adjusted for" appeals to me too

    Yes, "space should be made for" it - you got it! If "allowing for" sounds natural to your native ears, I'll start using it.

    I don't know why this lovely forum doesn't let us explicitly thank someone, but be sure that I've done that (in my heart!) with regard to you, 5jj.
