AbstractAbstract. According to Stakeholder Theory, the author of the article conducted a research on the influence of corporate social responsibility (CSR for short) on its performance by using the Structural Equation Modeling. On the basis of the research results of available literatures, setting up an assumptive Conceptual Model indicating the relationship between the factors of corporate social responsibility and the factors of its performance, selecting the annual report data of 76 listed companies in Northeastern provinces of China in the 5 consecutive years from 2005 to 2009 as research sample, the author conducted hypothesis testing through the Structural Equation Modeling. The result is that in the 5 consecutive years from 2005 to 2009, CSR for shareholders has a positive effect on a company’s performance; CSR for creditors has a positive effect on a company’s performance; CSR for government has a positive effect on business performance, and the impact on financial performance was not significant. Generally speaking, CSR causes great effects on a company’s performance; namely, the more responsibility for stakeholders, the better a company’s performance.
