Corporate Social Responsibility and Dishonest Consumer Behavior

We examine a novel way with which individuals respond to an organization’s polarizing CSR: dishonest behavior toward the organization. When the CSR cause is congruent [incongruent] with the self-concept, CSR (vs. no-CSR) decreases [increases] dishonest behavior by increasing [decreasing] anticipatory self-threat. The effect of incongruent (vs. congruent) CSR is larger.
