Corporate sustainability concept is defined as a development in the natural movement of institutionalization rather than being a brand new paradigm by being associated and discussed with its predecessors. Explanations derived from different organizational theories are used in order to understand the role of corporate sustainability in corporate strategic decision-making processes, and the empirical work carried on the subject was compiled in this conceptual framework. Critical indicators of sustainability performance measurement were presented using sustainability reports. In these two perspectives this article contributes to the literature in two respects; first evidence form organizational theories about strategical aspects of corporate sustainability are demonstrated and second, critical indicators for measurement of corporate sustainability are discussed.

Kurumsal sürdürülebilirlik kavramı; öncülleri ile ilişkilendirilip tartışılarak yepyeni bir paradigma olmaktan ziyade kurumsallaşmanın doğal deviniminde bir gelişme olarak tanımlandı. Kurumsal stratejik karar verme süreçlerinde kurumsal sürdürülebilirliğin yerini anlamak için farklı örgüt kuramlarından açıklamalar getirildi, literatürde bu konuda yapılan ampirik çalışmalar bu kavramsal çerçevede derlendi. Sürdürülebilirlik raporları kullanılarak sürdürülebilirlik performansı ölçümüne dair kritik göstergeler sunuldu. Makale sürdürülebilirliğin stratejik önemine yönelik literatürde iki önemli kuramsal boşluğu doldurmaya katkı sağlamaktadır.
