Do you think it is ethical for a company to use its corporate responsibility work in its advertisements?

There are some really good corporate responsibility works going on and we know this because the companies running those works also runs ads for them.
This creates a dilemma, shouldn't those works be for the good of the public only? Don't the companies get any financial benefit as a result of those ads?
Or do you think it is OK just as long as the public benefits from the charitable work?

  • May 28 2013: its up to you to decide if thats ethical or not. Well if good publicity is incentive to do good for others i dont see whats so bad about it, although because its for public relations i might not classiffy it as altruistic but its still a good thing reguardless.
