Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is essential to sustainable business development within and outside the workplace. If we think of corporate (business) as being through, by, and for society, then we can readily analyse the impact of corporate social responsibility (CSR) on our community as a whole as well as in corporate (business). This paper analyses specific strategic objectives and motivations for adopting corporate social responsibility (CSR) to provide a text for regulating sustainable business. Why is corporate social responsibility (CSR) a strategic tool for long-term corporate (business) sustainability? This concept focuses on generating extraordinary corporate results and establishing an incredible practical effort on corporate social responsibility (CSR) for Sustainable Corporate (Business). We are now advancing our study agenda on the analytical method in this work. Here, we provided a roadmap for moving forward with our theoretical, analytical, and empirical investigation of corporate social responsibility (CSR). This research and documentation on corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a strategic tool for sustainable corporate (business) is one of the “first” of its kind. It serves as a foundation for understanding the dynamics of sustainable business through corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the years to come.
