COR­PO­RATE SO­CIAL RE­SPON­SI­BIL­ITY – PLAN­NING AND IM­PLE­MEN­TA­TION

Down to Earth - - EDITOR’S PAGE -

Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity (CSR) is a key com­po­nent of in­clu­sive and re­spon­si­ble busi­nesses. With CSR re­port­ing and ad­dress­ing be­ing manda­tory fol­low­ing the amend­ment of the Com­pa­nies Act in 2013, it is highly de­sir­able for all stake­hold­ers to de­lib­er­ate and an­a­lyse the CSR pol­icy in the con­text of for­mu­la­tion, ex­e­cu­tion and mon­i­tor­ing-re­spon­si­ble business ac­tions.

Cen­tre of Sci­ence and En­vi­ron­ment is con­duct­ing a three day train­ing pro­gramme which is de­signed based on the pro­vi­sions of the Act and Rules. The train­ing aims at giv­ing prac­ti­cal ex­po­sure to par­tic­i­pants on CSR with spe­cific ref­er­ence to the reg­u­la­tory frame­work, for­mu­lat­ing CSR pol­icy-need base assess­ment, stake­holder en­gage­ment, method­olo­gies for im­ple­men­ta­tion, per­for­mance eval­u­a­tion and statu­tory re­port­ing.

The ob­jec­tive of the pro­gramme is to build a cadre of CSR lead­ers and pro­fes­sion­als who would as­sist ef­fec­tive de­vel­op­ment and im­ple­men­ta­tion of CSR ac­tiv­i­ties of or­gan­i­sa­tions for the ben­e­fit of com­mu­ni­ties as well as business.
