CSR has been a buzz word, since India has been the first country to introduce statutory provisions with respect to CSR under companies act-2013 . In the first five years of the mandated CSR era , India Inc, has made significant progress from adoption to application of the law , and now from alignment to sustainable development Goals ( SDGs ).

The key question now is – what has been the impact of spending that has happened so far ? How can corporations leverage on it by creating essential services such as Sanitation , Health Care , Clean Drinking Water , Education and Financial  literacy and what can be done to maximize it , scale it up, and make it sustainable?

The IICSR-2020 , Let’s hear from the CSR and civil society leaders some challenges, opportunities and learnings based on their experiences. A cross – fertilization of thoughts between policy makers, funders, researchers and implementers would be facilitated – highlighting key parameters for measurable , scalable and sustainable impact.

Corporate Social Responsibility ( CSR ) is a self regulating business model tht helps a company be socially accountable to itself , its stakeholders, and the public . By practicing Corporate Social Responsibility , also called corporate citizenship, companies can be conscious of the kind of Impact they are having on all aspects of society, including economic , social and environmental..

For a company to be socially responsible , it first needs to be accountable to itself and stakeholders. Often companies that adapt CSR programs have grown their business to the point where they can give back to society . Thus , CSR is primarily a strategy of large corporations , Also , the more visible and successful a corporation is , the more responsibility it has to set standards of ethical behaviour for its peers, congestion and industry.
