Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to the responsibility companies are expected to assume for people, society and the environment that are affected by their activities. The extensive engagement in CSR at many different levels sometimes makes it difficult for individual companies to keep track. A seminar was recently organised to make Norwegian companies in India find their way around in this landscape.
Innovation Norway in India in collaboration with the Embassy of Norway in New Delhi, the Consulate General in Mumbai and the Norwegian Business Association, India (NBAI) recently organised a half-day-long Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) workshop alongside NBAI’s Annual General Meeting in Mumbai on July 11, 2016. The main agenda of the workshop was to make Norwegian companies familiar with the new Indian legislation on CSR and to encourage them to not only abide by the local laws but also aim to achieve the Norwegian CSR standards.
