18-H: the Authenticity of Corporate Social Responsibility Actions on Brand Symbolism

This research analyzes how corporate social responsibility (CSR) actions (related or unrelated to the company’s core business) influence brand symbolism. Findings suggest that CSR actions unrelated (vs related) to the company’s core business increase perception of brand social consciousness, influencing brand symbolism and having downstream effects on behavioral intentions.
