Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Corporate social responsibility (CSR)—an indispensable part of business ethics and the spirit of law—has become a fundamental pillar in the current global environment. As CSR intensifies clients' loyalty, employee attraction and access to capital, organizations depend profoundly on the value of their reputation to secure financial sustainability, business connectedness and constructive relationships with their communities.

Within this context, the World Bank described how, “companies with social responsibilities always think about their impact on environment, communities, and stakeholder goals to achieve profit.”

This Special Issue on, “CSR: Ensuring Brand Reputation and Financial Sustainability”, will further contribute to prior research in the domain of companies’/organizations’ social accountability to themselves, their stakeholders and the public. The focal objective of the Special Issue is a knowledge transfer toward CSR spheres by adding new understanding into today’s global marketplace. Moreover, the aim of the Special Issue is to contribute to the epistemological literature by analyzing the impact of CSR on sustainable values in the context of a perpetual vicious circle of crises disturbing the world financial system.

Specifically, the authors should examine and critically analyze the extent to which CSR influences enterprises’/organizations’ financial sustainability and reputation outcomes as a result of connecting tangible and intangible assets with value.

The present Special Issue is a resourceful reference in that it explores the impact of CSR on financial sustainability and reputation brand value from the perspective of key theoretical and practical associations in an emerging epoch of everlasting crises.
