Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the voluntary commitment of companies to include in their business practices social actions, environmental and economic dimensions, without being bound by legislation and also be related to all those affected by their activities. As part of the preparation of this thesis, will be extensively analyzed the concept of CSR, the factors impacting on this and earlier surveys made on the relationship between financial performance of a company and CSR. Apart from the theoretical framework which is an essential pillar of a study, this dissertation studies the effect of CSR in Financial Performance for UK companies. Through the empirical results obtained and relying on the extensive literature that already exists we proved that most companies in the United Kingdom emphasize in the overall good picture that they will show to the outside and do not focus on a single sector.
