Abstract

Understanding the practices and factors influencing CSR implementation is important for construction enterprises in formulating effective strategies for CSR implementation in today’s era of sustainable development. This study aims to explore construction enterprises’ CSR behavior. Based on a review of the literature, this research presents a conceptual modal on practices and factors influencing construction enterprises’ CSR implementation by integrating three underpinning theories (i.e., stakeholder theory, institutional theory and self-determination theory). The results show that there are ten CSR aspects (with 36 sub-aspects) which closely relate to enterprise’s stakeholders. The identified ten CSR aspects are shareholders, environment preservation, local community; employees; clients or owners; suppliers; government; competitors; non-government organizations (NGO); CSR institutional arrangement. It was found that construction enterprises’ CSR implementations are affected by five groups of factors, namely: coercive factors; mimetic factors; normative factors; intrinsic factors; and identified factor. This framework will be tested in subsequent stages of the research project.
