Thus the research includes top and middle managers of listed and non listed companies of Iran stock exchange. Data was analyzed by partial linear squares (PLS).

But their approaches and viewpoints do not affect from behavioral beliefs. Moreover, managers’ sustainability reporting behavior is explained by their intentions toward sustainability reporting. Besides, results indicate that gender and education level do not affect on managers’ behavioral, normative and control beliefs but religious awareness and board of directors independency affect on managers’ normative and control beliefs, whereas the mentioned factors do not affect on managers’ behavioral beliefs.
