MUMBAI: At a glittering ceremony, Blue Dart Express Limited, South Asia’s premier courier and integrated express package distribution Company, and part of the DHL Group presented the inaugural Global CSR Awards. The awards recognized corporate social responsibility (CSR) champions across various industries and were part of the first World CSR Day. Union Minister of Corporate Affairs, Dr. M. Veerappa Moily was the Chief Guest at this event held at the Taj Lands End, Mumbai.

The World CSR Day-Global CSR Awards were in conjunction with DHL’s first Corporate Responsibility Day in India and comprised of two panel discussions – CSR: The Way Forward and Public-Private Partnership for a Greener Planet. Designed to foster discussion and awareness of corporate responsibility within the private sector, the panel discussions were well attended by customers and leaders in both the government as well as the business community.

Chaired by Dr. Bhaskar Chatterjee, Director General & CEO, Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs, the panel included Malcolm Monteiro, SVP & Area Director – South Asia, DHL Express and other esteemed corporate leaders.

Malcolm Monteiro, SVP & Area Director – South Asia, DHL Express, said, “As a responsible organization, we firmly believe in striking the right balance between economic benefits and social responsibility. The Deutsche Post DHL group has been championing the cause of sustainability by being associated with activities that would make the planet a better place to live in.

This includes not only supporting various causes, but also offering environmentally friendly logistics solutions to our customers, thereby making them co-stakeholders in our efforts to minimize the impact of our business on the environment. The need of the hour is to have sustainability practiced in a sustained way by more corporations and we are sure that in the days to come this cause will gain momentum in India.
