Abstract

The question of how reporting, engagement, transparency and disclosure impact on businesses practices and performance has been a topic for research for a long time for both academics and practitioners. The link between corporate social responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Financial Performance (CFP) is a topic that has created discussion across disciplines and links research from marketing, ethics sustainability and finance. This paper proposes that the link between CSR and financial performance should be explored via brand value . We analyzed the relationship between brand value and corporate social reporting/performance using a sample of 175 global firms and show that high CSR rankings are positively linked to high brand value in our sample.
