Corporate Social Responsibility
CSR is defined as “the responsibility of enterprises for their impacts on society”. CSR in India has traditionally been seen as a philanthropic activity, but has moved from institutional building (educational, research & culture) to community development through various projects. The Companies Act, 2013 passed by Indian parliament which comes into effect on 1st April, 2014 has introduced the idea of CSR to the forefront and through its disclose-or-explain mandate, is promoting greater transparency and disclosure.
Since Corporate Social responsibility and sustainability are so closely entwined, it can be said that corporate social responsibility and sustainability is a company’s commitment to its stakeholders to conduct business in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner that is transparent and ethical.
