Is Csr For Sale? Investigating the Effects of Acquisition of Socially Responsible Brands on Csr Perceptions

This research examines whether firms can increase consumers’ CSR perceptions by acquiring socially responsible brands. Two experiments demonstrate that (1) firms are more likely to increase CSR perceptions through acquisition of a functional (vs. symbolic) brand, and (2) for symbolic brands, new brand development (vs. acquisition) enhances CSR perceptions.
