What is corporate social responsibility or CSR? What led to the emergence of CSR? Can CSR play a crucial role in the socio-economic development of a country? The first episode on CSR in India will answer all these questions and more.

Course Description

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has now become a mainstream business practice. But it has gone through several stages and its meaning has been changed with time. From a simple deed of charity by some industrialist, it has evolved into being a good business practice with a huge socio-economic impact. Today corporates closely involved in CSR are recognised worldwide through awards and adulations. Such recognitions give a good boost to the image of these companies as well. Every country has a different way of reporting CSR, but in India CSR is officially a law. After making it a law, India has witnessed large amount of investments from the private sector for social good. All over the world CSR has created a huge impact. It is for this reason that many see CSR as the route through which NGOs, private sector, and governments can come together to fulfil SDG2030.
