Stewardship

The idea that one has a responsibility to manage wealth and other assets equitably and sustainably. That is, stewardship holds that owners do not have an absolute right to use their property however they see fit, but have the obligation to use it to help others and it ensure that no harm is done to the poor, one's employees, the environment, or anything else.
