Abstract: An enormous and developing assortment of literature to environmental issues and corporate social responsibility exists. Literatures on merging the environmental issues in the industry with corporate social responsibility are relatively limited. In order to merging these two, qualitative and quantitative data’s are used to identify the environmental issues in various industries. Considering this developing exploration area, the objective and aim for this paper is to analyze research in international scientific journals that focus on environmental issues, corporate social responsibility, and green supply chain management. We recommend the following queries need to be addressed: (i) what are the common factors considered? (ii) What are the popular MCDM tools used to solve the problems? (iii) What are possible suggestions can be followed? We find that common factors are categorized under three main categories such as social, economic and environmental factors. Common factors are further segregated into sub factors. The most common MCDM tool used was “, DEMATEL ISM and AHP”. Further analysis was done and gaps in literature are identified. These gaps aid us to find improvements for corporate social responsibility and possible future directions.
