The purpose of this paper is to identify the effect of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and ISO 26000 on a company’s reputation and loyalty. After reviewing the related articles on CSR and ISO 26000, which is considered the global CSR standard, the authors aim to suggest the available empirical models and research questions to assess the effect of ISO 26000 on business management.
The authors examine the CSR and ISO 26000 related papers and find out the specific aspects of ISO 26000. Also the authors show all ISO 26000 contents and analyze them in order to understand the effects. Finally, the authors provide the whole empirical model and research questions for future studies.
The paper provides the research model and several hypotheses about whether ISO 26000 has had an effect on company reputation. Also a research model is suggested with proper research methodology.
Due to the research purpose, the paper ends with the suggestion of an empirical model. Panel data need to be applied to verify the suggested model.
There are various papers regarding the effect of CSR. However, few papers exist about the causal relationship between ISO 26000, which is the global standard of CSR, and company reputation.
