Anneke Zwart, Student (University), Netherlands, Moderator
Ferrell and Thorne-LeClair distinguish three types of socially responsible companies:

2. PRACTICE-WHAT-THEY-PREACH COMPANIES: the second type of organization are less conscious than open-handlers organizations, however they are committed to particular causes/philanthropic actions on a long-term bases

IMAGE-BUILDER ORGANIZATIONS: this type or organizations is engaged in cause-related marketing, which refers to partnerships between a for-profit and a non-profit organization/foundation/charity or other public cause that yield mutual benefits. Money spent in cause-related marketing is expected to show a return.
