Abstract

Purpose – This study aims to examine whether corporate social responsibility (CSR) and relevant reporting enhances firms’ economic performance among the listed firms in Bangladesh.

Design/methodology/approach – This study uses a content analysis to examine specific CSR-related attributes from 115 non-financial publicly listed firms in Bangladesh. Firm CSR reporting is evaluated against accounting and market performance measures, with a simultaneous equation approach used to control the potential endogeneity problem.

Findings – This study finds that CSR reporting significantly influences firm performance under both performance measures, although a firm’s economic performance does not influence CSR reporting.

Research limitations/implications – This study is subject to some limitations, such as the subjectivity or judgement associated in the coding process.

Practical implications – The findings imply that although CSR reporting by firms in Bangladesh is discretionary in nature, the ones that report add value to their firm.

Originality/value – This study contributes to the literature on the practices of CSR reporting in the context of the developing countries.
