have attracted the attention of CSR practitioners and scholars. These include studies that suggest that CSR activities provide an insurancelike protection when negative events occur ( Godfrey et al., 2009 ); that CSR activities influence not only the growth of sales, but also employment ( Carmeli, 2005 ) and investment ( Sen et al., 2006 ); and that firms with higher CSR ratings may have a sustainable competitive advantage in terms of human capital because they attract more and better potential employees than firms with lower CSR ratings ( Hunt et al., 1989 ; Turban

environment influences adaptations. The Irish chambers are voluntary, private law bodies that receive no direct state support; if something goes wrong, they suffer losses and risk insolvency. This is a strong contrast to public law chamber systems such as those in France and Germany which, although legally obliged to balance budgets, are underpinned by the state and effectively pass risk to the tax payer. This difference will be particularly significant in a crisis. Comparisons of private and public law systems of trade associations ( van Waarden, 1991 ) and chambers
