Season 1: India’s CSR Policy and it’s alignment with SDGs
The CSR Law was first introduced in Indian law by the Companies Act in 2013 to engage corporations to contribute towards the economic, social and environmental development of India. Since then, it has witnessed multiple updates and revisions by high-level committees chaired by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), the apex body of the Government of India tasked with the regulation of the corporate sector. In August 2019, the MCA released it’s latest high-level committee report on CSR, signaling new changes in the way corporates would be required to align their CSR activity with the Sustainable Development Goals.
In our first season of the podcast series, we will explore how this policy shift will impact the way CSR is conducted in the country and the new opportunities it will generate for knowledge institutions, both in India and abroad.
