This study explores the relationship between corporate social responsibility and corporate financial performance in the U.S. listed informational technology companies from 2015 to 2019. Specifically, this analysis utilizes four fixed effects regression models to assess the relationship between CSR, measured by ESG scores, and CFP, measured by return on assets. The results indicate no statistical significance between the ESG coefficient and ROA, meaning that the ESG effect on ROA is not robust. Despite the inability to establish a concrete relationship between CSR and CFP, I argue that there are key limitations to this study that serve as possible explanations.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
