Down to Earth



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.
