CSR Mandate – Enabling Sustainability
The task of enabling social sustainability encompasses facilitation of various CSR initiatives and their capacity building by helping them streamline their focus and convergence. When India made CSR a law, becoming the first country to do so, we as a media house decided to create a platform in print and web. Thus, CSR Mandate was born in order to complement, supplement and sensitise this great law. The magazine works towards knitting together policy makers, corporates and communities working towards similar goals. It provides a direction to them to work towards building a harmonious society where growth becomes inevitable as it is powered by educated, healthy, happy, robust and well-trained citizens.
