Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present a theoretical framework of testable propositions based on a current literature review. We uniquely view a firm's corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment through a theoretical lens of social capital in supply chain management (SCM). Utilising a literature review framework, this paper proposes a set of testable propositions as a framework to further research CSR, sustainable supply chain management, and social capital. Through prior research we explore and establish dimensions of social capital's (structural, relational, and cognitive) potential relationships with CSR and how its commitment impacts sustainable supply chain performance. This study presents an extensive literature review of research on the effects of social capital accumulation as it relates to corporate social responsibility and sustainable supply chain management performance. A taxonomy of the literature is also presented as a basis for future empirical research.
