ABSTRACT
This study examines whether socially responsible firms behave differently from other firms in their corporate governance. Specifically, we question whether firms that exhibit corporate social responsibility (CSR) also behave in a responsible manner to enhance corporate governance practices. Using Business Ethics lists for 2006 to 2009, we have constructed a sample with 350 U.S. companies receiving an ethics rating and 350 other firms (considered as matching firms and not considered as socially responsible firms in any CSR ratings). Our results show no differences in corporate governance characteristics between the two samples of firms.
