Abstract: The general purpose of this study is to address the potential impact of marketing related corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives on consumer behaviour, the importance of communication of CSR in achieving a positive behaviour/attitude change, the feelings, and perception of consumers regarding the green and sustainable policies of technology companies as well as the levels of awareness and responsiveness among the consumers towards environmental sustainability. The research focuses on the aforementioned targets in relation to the computer giant Apple who has an impressive foothold within the industry brought by its revolutions under reinventions of personal computers, mobile phones, digital music players, and future mobile media devices. The company’s particular ‘Recycling Programme’ as an example of corporate social marketing (CSM) together with its green policies conveyed through its environmental footprint are investigated by means of an online questionnaire. The responses gathered from 30 participants across 7 different countries are analysed through individual and cross-dimensional perspectives. Results show that CSM promotes positive behaviour/attitude change including participation, word-of-mouth, and customer confidence all of which contributes to consumer’s own evaluation that is enriched by being informed about the cause and being convinced about the difference made. In conclusion, CSM influences consumers’ perception of CSR, comprehension of green policies, attachment to environmental sustainability, awareness and responsiveness that are incorporated in customers’ beliefs.
