Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Economic Development in China

  • Associate Professor of Environmental Management Nasrin R. Khalili
  • Weiquan Cheng, Stuart Management Science Ph.D. student

Abstract:

This study examines corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategies and their anticipated impacts on both companies’ performance and climate change mitigation in mainland China. It performs analysis on the effectiveness of the policies/efforts undertaken by Chinese publicly-traded companies to carry on CSR projects, and specifically focuses on determining if CSR projects could help to enhance companies’ profitability while promoting sustainable development in China. Our modeling results indicate that company types and socioeconomic conditions within which they operate control the anticipated outcome of implementing CSR projects, specifically if those projects are designed to reduce companies' carbon emissions.
