Abstract

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has evolved to an important agenda for many industries and its scope has been widened from the responsible business to strategic decisions. The increasing importance of CSR affects business relations because organizations tend to choose business partners in consideration of their CSR awareness and activities. Scholars have identified the reasons why companies develop CSR strategies, such as reputation improvement, government regulations, competitive advantage, stakeholder pressures, and top management pressures. Since the construction sector serves infrastructure for other industries and has great supply chain relations in its business process, construction organizations should need to adopt CSR in their business. However, it is hardly a new idea for the construction industry and there is limited research from the perspective of construction industry. This study is a part of the thesis, which aims to understand CSR awareness, implementation, and its relationship with company competitiveness.
