The study was designed to explore the relationship between ethics and corporate social responsibility and productivity in the Nigeria extractive industry and make recommendations for possible implementation. Nigeria extractive industry contributes more than 90 percent of export revenue, in Nigeria, but the sector is constantly involved in conflicts and huge revenue losses. Managing in such an important area requires a focus on the ethical requirements that cement the relationship among government, business and society. Ethics and corporate social responsibility behavior ensures that an organization should follow environmentally and socially established ethical standards so as to promote productivity. The exploratory research design was used for the study and it was found that ethics and corporate social responsibility behaviour has positive relationship with productivity in the Nigeria extractive industry. It was suggested, based on the result of the study that employment opportunities in the sector should be increased for youths in the areas of operations to reduce conflicts and enhance productivity.
