Open Access Graduate Research Paper


This research study will answer the question of how manufacturers use CSR and EVPs to improve their image. The shift in perspective from manufacturing as a dirty polluting industry to a socially responsible one giving back more than they consume needs to be better understood in order to implement strategies in other countries who continue to lag behind. Further it is important to continue to understand the impact of manufacturers who give back as compared to those who don't and how they see the benefits of their contributions.
