We contribute to corporate social responsibility research by examining the influence of intrinsic Islamic religiosity, operationalized by Islamic Worldview, on investment decisions related to a firm faced with alleged environmental degradation in Pakistan. The findings based on a sample of 176 junior business executives establish that investors with higher scores on Islamic Worldview are less likely to invest in a profitable firm that is alleged of environmental degradation than those with lower scores. Guided by their intrinsic religiosity, investors make decisions different from those of the supposedly economically rational person.
