CSR - Corporate Social Responsibility - Training and Advisory

Corporate Social Responsibility has been traditionally viewed as a nice-to-have activity, driven either by the charitable instincts of top management, or by the PR value it generates. This situation is changing and more and more companies are viewing CSR as a vital component of corporate governance and risk management.

The Companies Bill (2013) proposes to make CSR mandatory for companies with with average annual revenues exceeding Rs.5000 crore or profits exceeding Rs.2000 crore. For such companies, government has indicated that a CSR spend equating to 2%of the net profits will be mandated. Further government is also prescribing the kinds of activities that can count as CSR. Further, government has mandated that CSR be conducted under the supervision of the company Board of Directors, with a designated Director responsible for the implementation.

Further, SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board) has required the top 100 listed companies to provide annual reporting of their CSR (or Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices), with effect from December 2012.

These developments are moving CSR from the space of voluntary corporate action to the domain of regulatory compliance.
