Abstract: 
We compare the strategic potential of Corporate Social Responsibility and Customer Orientation as commitments to larger quantities in Cournot competition. In addition to profits, firms can choose to care for the surplus of either all consumers (CSR) or their own customers only (CO), and if so, to what extent. We find that firms prefer to care for all consumers, choosing positive levels of CSR.
