What is Corporate Sustainability Performance (CSP)

Handbook of Research on Organizational Transformations through Big Data Analytics
CSP can be computed from large datasets in many ways and can be used as an index to measure movement for an enterprise into more sustainable strategic initiatives. One example is the Sustainalytics database, which has a multitude of companies that it has collected data on and in a stepwise process creates a CSP index, which measures stakeholder pressure on issues ranging from product-related concerns to those of employee treatment. Sustainalytics’ analysts identify concerns and assess an organization’s reputation among stakeholders, according to these concerns. This information is used to propose an evaluation reflecting the social and environmental issues most relevant to stakeholders of an organization.

Analytical databases and techniques in SCM are an important part of this research.

These efforts need to be geared to the development of properly managed supply chain relationships and corporate sustainability initiatives that ultimately promote broad-based sustainable development objectives for the good of people, plants, and profits (i.e., triple bottom-line).
