Webinar: Rational Investment in CSR
Please CEIBS Associate Professor of Finance Viktar Fedaseyeu on September 29, 2021 for a special Global EMBA online lecture on Rational Investment in CSR.
About the Webinar
During this event, we will use the principles of rational decision-making to evaluate the costs and benefits of investing in CSR activities. In order to do this, we will introduce some basic valuation concepts from corporate finance and apply them to CSR. We will also examine empirical evidence regarding the link between CSR and firm value and examine how changes in government regulation may affect firms’ incentives to engage in CSR. Ultimately, we will show that it is important to recognise that CSR, like any other corporate endeavour, entails trade-offs that can and should be carefully examined before a firm decides to engage in such activities.
