The Many Shades of Csr – the Interplay of Ca and Csr Associations

This paper investigates differential impact of different CSR formats on consumer response. Two studies demonstrate that consumers reward companies embracing Value-creating CSR, as opposed to Philanthropic and Promotional CSR, in CSR image and corporate ability image. And the effects are moderated by corporate competence.
