Abstract [sv]

Denna studie fokuserar på företagsstorleks inverkan på sambandet mellan Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) och Corporate Financial Performance (CFP). Huvudsyftet är att mäta om effekten av CSR på CFP skiljer sig mellan små och stora företag noterade på Nasdaq OMX Nordic Stockholm. Perioden som studeras är åren 2006-2009 samt år 2011. För att utröna om företagsstorlek har inverkan på sambandet tillämpas modererande regressionsanalys som går ut på att fastställa huruvida någon interaktionseffekt förekommer eller ej. Vi kontrollerar även för variablerna bransch och tid. Efter exkluderingar och bortfall består urvalet av 286 företag listade på Small-Cap, Mid-Cap och Large-Cap under den studerade tidsperioden. Resultaten visar att företagsstorlek påverkar sambandet mellan CSR och CFP, även om det är oklart på vilket sätt. Olika mått på CFP påvisar skilda riktningar av interaktionseffekten.

Abstract [en]

This study focuses on the interaction effect of firm-size on the relationship between Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Financial Performance (CFP). The main purpose is to determine if the effect of CSR on CFP differ between small and large firms listed on Nasdaq OMX Nordic Stockholm. The studied period is the years between 2006 and 2009 plus 2011. In order to investigate if firm-size moderates the relationship between CSR and CFP, we apply moderated regression analysis which is used to determine whether or not an interaction effect is present. We also control for other variables such as industry and time. We consider a final sample of 286 firms listed on Small-Cap, Mid-Cap and Large-Cap during the observed time period. The results show that firm-size does have an interaction effect on the relationship between CSR and CFP, even though it is not clear in which way. Diverse measurements of CFP yield different direction of the interaction effect.
