The trend of publishing reports about corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability activities has become a phenomenon that is getting more popular in the construction sector. The aim of this study is to discover the perception of employees, who are the ones that experience these applications first hand in a company. A pilot survey has been prepared and conducted for construction sector professionals. Factor analysis has been applied by SmartPLS 3.0 software after the elimination of key indicators. To define “Individual mindfulness,” mediation effect has investigated between “Environmental sustainability” and “Environmental CSR” by using PROCESS macro on SPSS. The results indicated that individual mindfulness level has a positive effect on the relationship between environmental sustainability (ES) and environmental CSR. However, other values like experience, age, etc., have been found irrelevant to this relationship. Therefore, to explain more about control variables, correlation tests have been executed.
