This Special Issue is designed to spotlight contemporary research on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and green innovation from a COVID-19 perspective. Previous research on CSR focused on the contexts of developed and developing countries, and this kind of research is increasingly necessary in the ongoing pandemic situation. What has been going on in the CSR field for the last two years that warrants investigation? Moreover, the global economy has been disastrously impacted by COVID-19, but the ways that business organizations, governments, and policy makers are using CSR strategies to mitigate stakeholders’ demands are emerging concepts that we are only just beginning to understand and investigate. CSR uses a strategic matter rather than a philanthropic approach via global corporation (Masud et al. 2019) to gain sustainability; therefore, CSR responses during COVID-19 is a large topic of analysis. Furthermore, the devastation being caused by climate change mandates a greater emphasis on green innovation (Bae et al. 2021; Diffenbaugh and Burke, 2019). The Special Issue will, therefore, provide an opportunity for contributors to spotlight their contributions to the broad fields of business; economics; political science; law; accounting; finance; marketing; supply chains; international business; environmental management; and management.
