With the ascendancy of the notion of corporate social responsibility (CSR), the construct of moral capital is of increasing relevance to corporations and their stakeholders, for example as a means to measure some of the intangible outcomes of CSR. However, its use as a variable for research has been limited by a lack of conceptual development and lack of existing measures of moral capital. To address this lack, this paper locates moral capital within a conceptual body of literature in order to operationalize the construct. The validity of a moral capital scale is explored over five empirical studies incorporating multi-trait, multi-method validation. The Moral Capital Scale demonstrated internal consistency and construct validity, as evaluated through factor analysis, correlation with existing measures, and hypothesis testing.
