Abstract The purpose of the paper is to examine the literature on definitions of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and to propose a consensus definition of CSR. Through a systematic literature review published since 1953, a total of 56 definitions are identified. The observed definitions are analysed and various dimensions are identified to investigate the shift in the research focus of CSR. The dimensions are grouped into five broad categories such as aspect, benefit, beneficiary approach and timeframe, which form the basis for the consensus definition of CSR. The proposed definition would guide academics to build new knowledge on CSR and practitioners to eliminate the ambiguity and implement CSR practices more effectively.
