16 Communicating BSR Communicating BSR is an area that needs to be explored. The relevant partners in a BSR dialogue need to be identified- senders and receivers, are referred collectively as stakeholders Internal and External stakeholders are mutually dependant on one another, presented in relation to the company. Brand Social Responsibility3/26/2011

17 Communicating BSR Traditionally, companies have paid more attention to their internal stakeholders. These stakeholders’ demands and expectations may imply conflicting needs and interests. One way of addressing this issue is to group stakeholders with similar interests (authorities, business partners, financial actors, external influence and customer groups) Brand Social Responsibility3/26/2011

18 Communicating BSR Among the external stakeholders, the media deserve particular attention. What is portrayed in media will influence internal as well as other external stakeholders that in their turn may affect others. Their role can be seen as ambassadors of messages and opinions. If a message or an opinion is stated by a strong ambassador or a trustworthy person, it is more likely that the word goes beyond the primary reader. Brand Social Responsibility3/26/2011

Communication of BSR does not only create awareness for CSR and support for an image of a brand, it is also a way of creating a bond between the company and its stakeholders.
