    In recent years, market agents have paid more attention to firm-level sustainable developments, but the economic effects of venture capital on corporate social responsibility (CSR) performance are not clear. We empirically investigated this issue using data from Chinese non-financial A-share listed firms between 2010 and 2019. We found that venture capital participation may reduce the CSR performance of portfolio companies (e.g., SMEs), and high-quality internal control would moderate the relationship between venture capital and CSR performance. We suggest that the Chinese regulatory agencies should further direct institutional investors to establish socially responsible investments (SRI), optimise the information disclosure of CSR and enhance the listed companies’ internal control system.
