For enterprises, their social responsibility activities are affected in many ways, including enter-prise size corporate culture, corporate governance structure and political association. This paper mainly studies the relationship between political association and corporate participation in social responsibility activities. This paper empirically studies the political association and social responsibility data of Chinese listed company executives and finds that the political associations of listed company executives have a positive correlation with the fulfillment of their social responsibilities. The influence of executive political association on corporate social responsibility is mainly in the following two aspects. On the one hand, corporate executives with political association will attract more attention of the public, and then the public will exert more pressure on their social responsibility behavior, prompting them to change the relevant strategic decisions. On the other hand, the degree of political association of executives is different, that is, the difference in senior management level will lead to different levels of social pressure, and will affect the company's social responsibility. The conclusion part of this paper puts forward some suggestions, hoping to provide some inspiration and reference in realizing enterprise development and social progress.
