Corporate social responsibility and company performance : evidence from Sri Lanka

Tilakasiri, Korathotage Kamal (2012) Corporate social responsibility and company performance : evidence from Sri Lanka. PhD thesis, Victoria University.


The concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) developed in the Western world since the 1950s, is novel to developing countries. Various CSR principles, standards, frameworks and indices have grown significantly as researchers to expand the concept in business and academic worlds. The practice of the concept and its behaviour is similar in both the developed and developing worlds. However, there are significant differences between the two worlds in implementing CSR activities. Researchers have identified these differences—of culture, management perspectives, and geographical and natural business systems—and concluded that existing CSR in the developed world cannot be employed in developing countries. Therefore, researchers are now turning their attention to investigating CSR from the point of view of developing countries.
