MUMBAI: Samabhavana Society, an ISO 9001:2008 registered Not-for-profit has thus taken the initiative to begin the second phase of the Global Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility, with support from IBM and under the aegis of the Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs.

global conference on CSR

Samabhavana is laying emphasis on ensuring the NGO- Corporate connects which was felt need during the 3C Training Program organised across India and taking it from there, our endeavour is create a meaning full platform for synergising the process.

The Company Bill-2013, Section 135 has created an environment where businesses have to accept and embrace the idea of sustainable development and companies are not just expected but are increasingly being mandated to take responsibilities of the impacts they are making on society and the environment.

This brings Corporate Social Responsibility to the forefront with equal emphasis and importance as any other core area of businesses and we strongly believe that this is going to be a Golden Era for Civil Society organisations.

The conference is taking place in Mumbai, Maharashtra on 16th and 17th April 2014 at The Westin Hotel, Goregaon.
