Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR), Green Investment, and Sustainable Business Performance

Sustainable Business Performance has been publicized in the business practices of world organizations. In addition to the traditional profit-oriented business practices, which only seek for the maximization of shareholders' wealth, the sustainable business performance concept has gradually evolved to expand that benefit to a wider community, namely, the ‘stakeholders’ in modern society. It is believed that if businesses become more socially responsible and environmentally friendly, then it will lead businesses to sustainable business performance. On the contrary, if the businesses act unethically, then the businesses will be avoided not only by consumers but by investors as well.

Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) is increasingly becoming a vital component of modern businesses due to rising expectations from stakeholders considering a growing global awareness of the need for strong corporate governance, environmental protection, and social care. One of the most controversial questions in CSR research involves the effect a firm's CSR has on its corporate business performance. In addition, green investment has also become a popular concept in recent years as global warming and environmental deterioration continue to pose serious threats to the world population.  Sustainability is an important concern and calls for sustainable business growth and performance have been ever more urgent. There is no doubt that green investment can contribute to green development; however, the key issue is whether green investment can improve business performance while maintaining its environmental benefits. Therefore, this special issue will provide insight on the adoption of CSR initiatives by the businesses, green investment, and sustainable business performance.
