Abstract [sv]

: I denna studie undersöker vi om CSR-strategier påverkar företagets möjligheter att få tillgång till externt kapital genom att sänka dess kapitalbegränsningar. Förtydligat syftar studien till att förklara hur sambandet mellan CSR-arbete och kapitalbegränsningar samt mellan CSR:s dimensioner och kapitalbegränsningar ser ut. Kan ett ökat CSR-arbete minska kapitalbegränsningar, ge ökad tillgång till kapital som i sin tur leder till större möjligheter att göra lönsamma investeringar och därmed skapa värde för företaget? Tidigare forskning har stannat vid att konstatera att CSR är värdeskapande och ökar företagets finansiella prestation men få rapporter går vidare och förklarar på vilket sätt värdet skapas eller varför den finansiella prestationen ökar. Vi tar ett steg till och ställer oss frågan varför värde skapas.

Abstract [en]

In this study, we investigate whether CSR strategies affect the company's ability to access external capital by reducing its capital constraints. Explained, the study aims at explaining the relationship between CSR performance and capital constrains, as well as between CSR dimensions and capital constrains. Can an increased CSR performance reduce capital constrains, increase access to capital, which in turn leads to greater opportunities to make profitable investments and thus create value for the company? Previous research has stopped finding that CSR is creating value and increases the company's financial performance, but few reports go further and explain how the value is created or why the financial performance is increasing. We take a further step and ask why value is created.
