    Abstract

    There is a relative paucity of studies in relation to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) focused upon the ‘upstream’ components of the supply chain (business-to-business) hence our research investigates upstream CSR activities and their underlying motives using case studies from 5 UK industries. Findings indicate that whilst companies recognise the need to cover a range of CSR issues in their supply chain, motives vary plus only those aspects seen to have strategic implications will be allocated resources in any significant manner.
