The purpose of this paper is to validate the corporate environmental citizenship measurement originally developed by Banerjee (2002) in the Malaysian setting.
A systematic sampling technique was used, with a total of 251 responses. The measurement was tested using content validity, convergent validity and discriminant validity.
The study finds that all four dimensions are highly suited for measuring corporate environmental citizenship in the construction companies in Malaysia.
The study uses a single respondent to report on the organization’s corporate environmental citizenship. The perceptions among the respondents may differ.
Organizations can use the measurement for benchmarking current levels of organizations’ environmental degradation as well as identify which business areas are in need to improve environmental preservation.
This study theoretically conceptualized corporate environmental citizenship as a multidimensional construct containing four dimensions.
This study contributes to the body of knowledge by validating corporate environmental citizenship measurement in the Malaysian context as measurement validation studies are scarcely found.
This research did not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.
