Philanthropy, CSR and Sustainability

Why You Should Attend?

The evolution of Indian organisations from philanthropy to social responsibility and to sustainability had posed impediments and the path was quite challenging. In this course of transition, the differences in practices such as philanthropy, CSR and sustainability had been often confused and defeated the very objective of a holistic implementation of these concepts. This MDP would emphasise on a more holistic approach of the three concepts to create a visible impact of these organisational schemes. Implementation issues of CSR and sustainability framework are multiple in nature. The appropriate CSR agenda linked with business strategy, implementation of the same, selecting the right NGO, evaluation and monitoring of NGOs and compliance pattern following the MoU as mentioned in the guidelines, have become increasingly important to understand and adopt. The main question posed here: Though the evolution and transition towards sustainability happened, had all these organisational schemes integrated with business strategies and adopted well within the organization?
