1.1 INTRODUCTION

Nowadays, the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) has been more considered by firms than ever. Most of the Fortune 1000 companies issue CSR reports, they not only care for their responsibility but also they consider it as a key to business.

Many firms know that they can get benefits from their social actions.

The study in economics and direction on the benefits and costs of CSR is growing very fast.

Marketing researches prove that ―70% of European consumers consider important a firm‘s commitment to CSR when buying a product or service and, moreover, 1 in 5 consumers would be willing to pay more for products that are socially and environmentally responsible‖. In 2003, many current studies disclosed that ―more than eight in ten British consumers consider important that a firm shows a high degree of social responsibility, when making their purchasing decisions. Also, most of customers feel that firms do not pay attention and take action to their environment and social concern. In a study of Mohr and Webb (2005) about the impact of CSR on price and consumer responses, the results show that CSR has a positive impact on consumers’ valuation of a company and on their buying habits. The study also discovers that a low price does not emerge to recompense for a low level of CSR.
