NEW DELHI: CSR is the integration of business operations and values, whereby the interests of all stakeholders including investors, customers, employees, the community and the environment is reflected in the company’s policies and actions.

ASSOCHAM_190At the ASSOCHAM CSR Awards 2012-13, Former President of India, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam said, “CSR, if it is implemented with sustainability as a focus, enhances business sustainability, provides new opportunities, develops customer loyalty and improves stakeholder relationship,” and “It should become an integral part of corporate strategy, management practices, business operations, product development and conservation of environment.”

ASSOCHAM believes that exemplary work in the field of CSR deserves due accolades and should be compiled, presented and appreciated in a public forum so as to encourage more companies to follow suit. To promote the CSR among the industries and in corporate world, ASSOCHAM institutionalized the CSR EXCELLENCE AWARDS, in 2008.

In continuation of our sacred initiative, ASSOCHAM invites application for the CSR Excellence Awards 2013-14 from your esteemed organizations to be a part of this prestigious journey.

For the year 2013-14, ASSOCHAM has again chosen to base its review and evaluation of a company’s commitment to CSR on the National Voluntary Guidelines for the Social, Environmental and Economic Responsibilities of Business 2011. These guidelines, developed by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in consultation with numerous stakeholders, broadly lay down the basic requirements for businesses to function responsibly and successfully achieve its triple bottom line objectives. The idea of adopting these Guidelines as the foundation of the awards assessment process is to promote a structured and transparent approach to fulfill   business responsibility and stimulate a thought process among those who want to but are unable to devise and streamline their CSR strategy. The questionnaire and details attached for your ready use.

The duly filled application form should reach us latest by 15th July 2013.

In case of any queries, please contact Mr Hitesh Khanna,( +91 9899172904) .
