This study discusses the use of the activity-based costing data of financial institutions in general and Barclays Bank in particular. It aims to determine if these performance metrics provide insights into the level of corporate social responsibility. It also seeks to determine if these financial metrics can and have been misused by analysts and researchers in the past to misrepresent or overstate the degree of corporate social responsibility for such financial institutions.
