Abstract [en]

This report is a case study of perceived Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) created risks among experts in the subject, with a current or prior employment in a Swedish company with a high CSR profile. The purpose of this research was to find visible links between an organisations CSR execution, and an increased risk exposure. Hopefully, my research will contribute to a more critical approach towards CSR than I believe is seen today, and make the concept even more sustainable in the long run.

My empirical data was retrieved from performed interviews with highly experienced CSR executives in different types of business areas, which I assessed held large experience and knowledge of the type of risks I wanted to examine. The result of this study showed that by performing CSR activities, organisations could be exposing themselves to numerous risks connected to the areas of operation, strategy, compliance and finance.
