COSTA, Marconi Freitas da; SANTOS, Leissiane Leisse  y  ANGELO, Claudio Felisoni de. Corporate social and environmental responsibility: do consumers perceive it as being an organizational value?. Gest. Prod. [online]. 2020, vol.27, n.4, e4688.  Epub 27-Jul-2020. ISSN 1806-9649.

This study investigates whether consumers perceive corporate social and environmental responsibility (SER) as an acquired organizational value or as existing due to other factors. Three organizations from different segments (cosmetics, fast food, and surf wear and street wear) were adopted as a reference. The data collection was carried out via a survey of consumers when they were in the establishments to make a purchase. The results allow it to be inferred that a considerable amount of the consumers do not evaluate the companies’ social and environmental responsibility as an organizational value, but as a corporate strategy. In addition, the consumers do not stop buying from an organization that does not have social and environmental responsibility. However, companies that disclose that they take a responsible position on social and environmental issues, but where in practice this does not occur, are punished by the consumers by them ceasing to buy from these organizations.

Palabras clave : Perception; Consumers; Social and environmental responsibility.
