The aim of the study has been to identify the main factor that could influence the capability development, which would eventually lead to the sustainable income, of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices in Malaysia. Based on the review of the literature, the study has
proposed social capital as the main factor that impacts the capability development and the sustainable income, from the sustainable CSR practices implemented by the companies. This can add to the knowledge of the importance of an effective CSR programme that may lead to a better opportunity
for the deprived people to develop their capabilities and increase their standard of living. Drawing on the underlying philosophies of the social capital theory, the study has developed a research proposition on the effects of social capital on the capability development and sustainable income
for future research to be carried out through the survey with a large dataset. This study is expected to benefit the new and current research especially in bridging the knowledge gap of the business–community relations in CSR.
