To implement CSR programs on Education and Skill Development


Why CSR?

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the process by which an organization thinks about and evolves its relationships with stakeholders for the common good, and demonstrates its commitment in this regard by adoption of appropriate business processes and strategies. Thus CSR is not charity or mere donations. CSR is a way of conducting business, by which corporate entities visibly contribute to the social good. Socially responsible companies do not limit themselves to using resources to engage in activities that increase only their profits. They use CSR to integrate economic, environmental and social objectives with the company's operations and growth. Moreover, there is a widespread consensus that 'business as usual' is no longer an option; corporate actors must place social concerns to the fore in their business operations.
