Abstract:In the past two decades, the concept of social sustainability has become more important than ever. Consumers are demanding more sustainable and ethical products and services. Especially the textile and apparel industry is often accused of being socially irresponsible due to their outsourcing of their manufacturing into countries with lenient labour laws and regulations. Consequently, many companies are being publicly held liable for their irresponsible behaviour. Therefore, more and more companies are now promoting their corporate social responsibility to the public in form of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reports. This is an incentive for the socially conscious public to invest in sustainable companies that share similar values and encourages ethical manufacturing. In this report six multi-national textile and apparel companies will be empirically analysed, to find out whether positive or negative publicity on their sustainability has an effect on their market value of their share.
