These 18 companies grouped into two group into two categories as oil & chemical manufacturing companies and food processing & beverages companies which are listed in New Zealand stock exchange. A correlation and regression techniques has been used to find the relationship of CSR with sales and PAT. CSR is considered as foundation to understand the responsibilities of companies toward the society. Every organization has some responsibilities toward the society. If companies do not meet that responsibilities, they cannot survive and their product cannot be accepted.
