The way I see it...

Retail companies already understand the monetary importance of appearing to be socially responsible. Walmart, in my area, for example has large signs stating how much they contribute to the local charities, along with asking every customer at the check out if they would like to donate a dollar to this or that hospital or charity.

It's all a fasad. It seems like retailers are less socially responsible (but really go out of their way to project an image of being part of a contributing community), where as many other NON RETAIL companies may be more socially responsible. IE... pollution, donations, employee treatment, ethics, etc., but their contributions are not as easily observable.

Bottom line is... I think companies have a social responsibility. I think they realize their success is proportionally dependent on a perception of the buying public upon their brand.
