CSR LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE 2015

With the mission to promote responsible business practices within the IT and BPM industry in India, NASSCOM Foundation is organizing ‘NASCOM Foundation CSR Leadership Conference 2015’ on March 25th 2015. The conference aims to bring together industry leaders, policy makers and heads from leading non-profits to discuss the evolving nature as well as the future opportunities of Corporate Social Responsibility in India.

 

Indian companies have been undertaking social initiatives proactively driven by a desire to give-back to society and sometimes out of business necessity. Through the new regulation of Companies Act, 2013, Government of India now mandates a CSR spend of 2 percent of the company's profits for all organizations above a certain size of revenues and profit. This has far reaching implications and opens up new vistas for businesses to positively impact individuals, communities and regions.
