The research in this book highlights managers’ incentives for CSR activities to adapt to changing social and environmental surroundings of business and finance using a stakeholder theory approach. In the context of Japanese firms, we conducted consistent analyses to respond to our research questions on the relationships between CSP and corporate finance and governance during the period of transition toward a more market-oriented system amid the globalization of business and finance. We proposed six research questions and found some interesting results that have implications for the future development of the Japan’s CSR and corporate finance in particular and sustainable development of business in general.
