President Ram Nath Kovind said it is befitting that the Ministry of Corporate Affairs is launching the National Corporate social responsibility awards in this year of Gandhiji’s 150th birth anniversary.
The president said the government is sensitive about the need to calibrate the CSR regime to make it more effective. In September 2019, the scope of the CSR activities was widened to include more categories of research incubators. “CSR activities are helping the nation progress towards the cherished goal of building a more equitable society. They have focused on sustainable projects creating a long term impact, “ he said.
CEO of BlueSky Sustainable Business – Neeta Sharma had an opportunity to be a part of this historic event and interact with the recipients of the CSR awards. It was a galaxy of great individuals who strongly believe in “Giving back to the society” and esteemed organizations who are making an “Impact” – need of the hour!!!
