Businesses are now required to perform notonly in terms of “Financial returns” but also in terms of “Social returns”. Per-formance in terms of environmental, social and governance impact of busi-nesses have become important indicators to achieve sustainable develop-ment of an economy.Presently, in India, people can confuse philanthropy and charity with Corpo-rate Social Responsibility (CSR), when, in fact, these are quite different things.Philanthropy and charity are significant but limited in their efficacy and scaleto achieve the desired progress in sustainable and inclusive development.Practical and correct usage of CSR creates a“WOW”effect in the mind of stake-holders and this needs to be understood by the companies. CSR aims at Sus-tainable Development, which revolves around the four pillars of CSR: the workplace, which revolves around the Employees; Market Place, which means thecustomers; the Society in general; and the Environment in particular.ABOUT INDIAN CENTRE FOR CSR (ICCSR)Indian Centre for CSR is a “Not for Profit” global advisory and training organi-zation engaged in the business of promoting Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) in India and globally.It is an initiative to provide Best Global Advisory & Research Servicesto the corporate world in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR).
