With India being one of the first countries to mandate Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), there is a growing interest among various stakeholders to see how the scenario is progressing.
While it can be acknowledged that the cumulative CSR spend has seemingly increased with more numbers of companies joining the league under the laws, there is a need to gage whether CSR in the current form of understanding and practice is ‘transactional’ or is it gradually shifting towards more systematic integration of social and environmental responsibility with business development, thus making their investments more impactful.
This session will focus on understanding the practice of Corporate houses to view CSR as opportunities for significant shared value creation, their understanding and contribution towards the SDGs and the role of public policies in the overall ecosystem. 
- How can businesses align their strategies with sustainability and SDG 2030?
- In what way can businesses drive or participate in multi-sector collaborations with policy and civil society?
- How can we better measure impact to encourage more effectiveness of CSR programmes?
