Corporate Sustainability, which based on four pillars, including Sustainable Development, Corporate Social Responsibility, Stakeholder Theory, and Corporate Accountability, defines that in order to be sustainable, an enterprise should take environmental, social and economic performances into account, while create values for stakeholders instead of merely maximizing its own profits. Corporations are facing severe challenges due to global climate change, limited energy and natural resources, political issues, as well as dynamic competition and transformation in and among industries. With Corporate Sustainability in mind, a corporation is more able to recognize the challenges and opportunities and thus develop strategies and dynamic capabilities that make the corporation sustainably competitive. In this research, corporations listed in “Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations” from 2012 to 2014 were selected as research samples. By analyzing those benchmarks’ KPIs with statistical methods, this study concludes that the 3 factors of Corporate Sustainability are Green Performance, Conscious Capitalism, and Innovation Performance, and the 4 strategic patterns of sustainable corporations are Innovation Leadership, Balanced Developer, Conscious Value Creator, and Green Service Pioneer.
