Abstract [sv]

Det huvudsakliga syftet med studien är att undersöka om det finns ett samband mellan företags CFP (Corporate Financial Performance) och dess CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). Vidare belysa vilken del CSR som har störst samband med CFP.För att uppnå syftet har en kvantitativ forskningsmetod använts. Datan som gett underlag till studien har hämtats från Infotorg och Folksams index för ansvarsfullt företagande för åren 2009, 2011 och 2013. Totalt ingår 178 företag i studien medan antalet observationer ingår till 534.Resultatet visar att de delar som ingår i CSR (miljö och mänskliga rättigheter) båda har en svag korrelation med CFP. Dock krävdes en djupare undersökning med regressionsanalyser för att vidare undersöka frågeställningen. Vi kunde se att den enskilt största faktorn som bidrog till ökad CFP, var företagets storlek.
