Re: 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.

Companies are responsible to their owners or shareholders that they aren't irresponsible such that it hurts the business. Rather, most show a social conscience to promote the business; it's a form of advertising.
