Abstract

In today’s competitive market environment, company’s performance is confronted with varieties of challenges that are not only focused on the economics-related factors, but also in developing the bridge between economy and social systems. The evaluation of a company performance is not merely by its sales revenues, but also largely depends on how the stakeholders’ view the company’s impact on the natural environment and society. Hence, the aim of this paper is to provide a baseline understanding of the current state of the research in the relationship between environmental responsibility and organizational performance. This paper covers a series of studies conducted in the periods of time during the past two decades. The analysis showed that there is a positive relationship between environmental performance and organizational performance. However, the study shows that, almost all previous studies and both themes (opponents and supporters) focus on measure the relationship between environmental responsibility (ER) and operations performance (OP) from financial aspect with the neglect of other aspects, such as customer satisfaction. It is suggested that it is a need to find the tool that can be used to integrate environmental aspects with the strategy of the management, incorporate financial and non-financial aspects, and takes a holistic (organizational-wide) view of performance.
