Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a self-regulating business model that helps a company be socially accountable — to itself, its stakeholders, and the public. Reduce carbon footprints to mitigate climate change. Improve labour policies and embrace fair trade. Engage in charitable giving and volunteer efforts within your community. These are the most common examples of corporate social responsibility.
India is the first country in the world to make corporate social responsibility (CSR) mandatory, following an amendment to the Companies Act, 2013 in April 2014. Businesses can invest their profits in areas such as education, poverty, gender equality, and hunger as part of any CSR compliance
