Multiple univariate regression models are applied to test each hypotheses. The results of this study show that the fulfillment of economic-socio-ecological responsibilities drive corporates financial performance sustainability. The results of this study open implications for business practices. First, fulfilling the economic-socio-ecological responsibilities is important for companies to obtain stakeholder legitimacy and support. Second, fulfilling economic-socio-ecological responsibilities is important to be disclosed to the public so that stakeholders can assess the risks and prospects of the company based on social and environmental factors.
