CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE: ANALYSIS ACROSS INDUSTRIES IN MEXICO 2640 1762 Soporte

ABSTRACT. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and corporate governance are two distinct concepts that may seem to be isolated in practice. However, there are many parallels to the extent that the latter may define the engagement of the former. As such, it may be argued that corporate governance is essential to the implementation of CSR. Thus, a question arises, are firms’ governance policies conducive to the engagement in corporate social responsibility? This study aims to evaluate the dynamics between corporate social responsibility and corporate governance of multinational firms operating in Mexico. Findings indicate that the practice of disclosing corporate social responsibility is more common than the transparent communication of corporate governance; however, the compliance with corporate governance is consistent with that of corporate social responsibility within the analysed firms.
