Resumo: This research reviews the influence of social responsibility (SR) to forest management, throughout exploring the direct and indirect consequences of forest fires in Portugal. The necessity to promote the development of pioneering practices will bring greater accountability, improve transparency and increase the sustainability of the forests' system. This research presents dual theoretical frameworks. The first has its origins in organisational and sociological theory that will assure the link of SR as a fundamental purpose to influence the forest protection and the environment preservation. The second is based in the accountability, providing explanations for economic and social decisions of forest management. There are four key-aspects: sustainability, accountability, transparency and leadership each one has prós and cons, but each contributes to the sustainable development and management forest. Therefore, bad example of forest fires would ensure entrenching of a social responsible approach into the future and the new generations.
