Abstract

This paper describes the design and development of a corporate sustainability index (CSI) platform for corporate sustainability performance (CSP) analysis. The CSI platform design was theoretically underpinned with management theories of CSP and organizational theories. A prototype system was developed and evaluated to demonstrate the feasibility of the design and the usability of the functionalities of the proposed CSI platform. Based on our search in several online journal databases (ABI/INFORM database, Academic Search Elite, ACM Digital Library, Emerald Fulltext, and Science Direct), we have observed that no literature exists on the application of corporate sustainability index (CSI) prototype systems for CSP analysis. This study includes the first identifiable application of a CSI prototype system for CSP analysis in the academic literature. The prototype system will be further developed and then converted into an industry-scalable CSI platform. The prototype system is expected to be further developed and converted into an industry scalable CSI platform.
