Resource description

This study examines the CR - financial performance relationship with a simultaneous emphasis on comprehensiveness and disaggregation. It covers CR issues in three dimensions and three product chain stages, tests for systematic differences between the financial performance impacts of these issues, and reports separately on the cost-side and revenue-side impacts. The study finds that there are small but systematic differences between CR dimensions and product chain stages as far as revenues and individual cost components are concerned. Economic responsibility issues and supplier issues stand out as less profitable than others. The study also discusses the de facto roles of business in society and calls for more research on the economic dimension of corporate responsibility.
