Many countries have duly drafted their CSR policies but many other are still struggling to give it a formal shape. While the western world has already started talking about the CSR2.0 and CSR 3.0, the other countries are still stuck with the philanthropy. Despite certain criticisms on the CSR activities, more companies in the world are inclining their strategies towards corporate social responsibility. The CSR Executives have the task of reconciling the various programs, quantifying their benefits, or at least sketching a logical connection to the business, and securing the support of business line counterparts. CSR can not only refer to the compliance of human right standards, labor and social security arrangements, but also to the fight against climate change, sustainable management of natural resources and consumer protection. In the Developed nations, the basic needs of the population do not require so much support as in the under-developed nations. This Conference is designed to understand and deal with the unprecedented impacts of CSR on the working population, society and environment and therefore to elaborate the various frameworks for it with a view towards developing its practice in an evolutionary way. The Sixth annual edition of conference will give new direction to the deliberations in different parts of the world. The world needs to come together to make the earth a better place to live.
The conference aims to provide a common platform to the corporate, government agencies, NGOs, civil society, academics and the other groups to share their expectations, aspirations and responsibilities. Conference also has the objective to create a Think-Tank, bringing together representatives from various parts of the globe, covering different domains of business and society on a single platform. Research in the domain of CSR and Sustainable Business along with Sanitation, Climate Control, Work Life Balance, Philanthropy, Responsible Products, Business Ethics, Social impact and other topics shall be shared in the form of Paper presentation, poster exhibition by researchers and professionals from various universities and institutions. Presentations and debates will highlight current thinking and how these issues are being addressed around the world nowadays.
