As we already know that CSR has gained popularity in very less time and it is acting as one of the main aspects which are helping the firms to increase their profits and respect towards their company in society. As this is proven fact many large-scale companies are involved in it. There are different firms available in markets such as healthcare, financial services, software, goods consumers, and etc. they all spend a specific amount on CSR activities, there are two different models in CSR:

  • CSR-CA: company ability relevant CSR
  • CSR-NCA: company ability irrelevant CSR

The corporate company can choose any of the models to pursue it. Relating the CSR activities with profits is not an easy thing to understand but doing it is so easy by doing various CSR activities form the firm it would help:

  • Gaining brand reputation: by increasing the reputation of the brand it will get more name and fame all over the world due to which sales of a particular company will increase.
