Sustainability has become a central issue for firms in the energy industry. These firms have been under increasing pressure to uplift not only their environmental consciousness but also social impact of their actions. One constraint of these firms is prevention of trading off shareholder value maximization with increasing their corporate social responsibility activities geared to the long term benefits of stakeholders. Based on the principles of fairness and equity, Islamic Banking and Finance also provides a vehicle for the firms in the energy industry by incentivizing their corporate social responsibility activities.
