How does the company handle third-party ethics issues? How charitable is the company? How does the company react when faced with negative disclosures?

These companies are associated with labels such as “green” and “socially responsible” and promote themselves in contrast to companies who are caricatured as old-school corporate kings such as: Gillette, Dow Chemical, Exxon, tobacco companies, defense contractors, and the chemical industry (Jennings, 2012, p. 102).
