Status Of Corporate Resposibility in India 2017

Corporate Responsibility Watch launched its first ever CSR in India Report in the year 2016 with the objective of providing an overall status of Business Responsibility. CSR in its original avatar was considered as responsible operations by businesses in their core business. In its new avatar, the Companies Act 2013, Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) initiatives are often talked about or undertaken as if they were something special, which is rather problematic. Separating responsibility from core business operations might reduce CSR to acts of philanthropy, as companies continue being irresponsible in their primary business activities. While aligning both aspects, compliance becomes a given when discussing CSR. It is detrimental for a company’s long term sustainability strategy to implement activities that have limited or no relationship to a company’s operations, as this exercise will have limited contribution in realising social, environmental and ethical business practices.

Handbook on Corporate Social Responsibility in India

India is a country of myriad contradictions. On the one hand, it has grown to be one of the largest economies in the world, and an increasingly important player in the emerging global order, on the other hand, it is still home to the largest number of people living in absolute poverty (even if the proportion of poor people has decreased) and the largest number of undernourished children. What emerges is a picture of uneven distribution of the benefits of growth which many believe, is the root cause of social unrest.
