Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to review and establish a theoretical framework that creates a systematized method to help SMEs willing to adopt a sustainability strategy. There is an increasing interest in SMEs to incorporate CSR and CS as a strategy, but they need a tool that would lower the entry barrier for SMEs struggling to adopt said objectives, such as the sustainable balance scorecard (SBSC). The chapter aims to provide a support tool and guide for SMEs interested in developing a CSR and sustainable strategy. To develop it, a literature review was performed, and the approach proposed by Hansen and Schaltegger was deemed to be feasible for adoption and implementation. As a result, an SBSC hierarchy is proposed for SMEs. Further evidence is necessary to validate the current proposal.
