The perspective of Brig. Rajiv Williams, YSM, Corporate Head (CSR), Jindal Stainless Limited Group (JSL), on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of a developed economy and an emerging economy is distinctly different. While, in a developed economy, Corporates have the option of choosing the nature of its CSR intervention; but, in an emerging economy, such flexibilities may not be possible. Hence, as CSR professionals, especially in an emerging economy, as that of India, one needs to be endemic in their facilitation and understand and support the reality of economic growth and bring about a direct relationship of ‘inclusive growth’ with social development. Interestingly, in India, the CSR mandate of the Companies Act, 2013 also supports a national development agenda.

His paper titled, ‘Jindal Stainless Limited’s Perspective on Corporate Social Responsibility – A New Strategic Dimension’ seeks to understand the various CSR implementation strategies available and explore, in particular, Jindal Stainless Limited (JSL), India’s largest and the only fully integrated Stainless Steel manufacturing Company’s CSR implementation, through its Case Study.

The keywords in the Chapter are: Charity Welfare Philanthropy (CWP), Sustainable CSR, CSR Implementation, Cheque Book Philanthropy, Grameen Dukan, Jindal Stainless Limited Foundation, Private-Private-Public-People Partnership.

This paper is a Chapter in the book ‘Corporate Social Responsibility in India: Cases and Developments after the Legal Mandate’ edited by Ms. Nayan Mitra and Dr. Rene Schmidpeter and published by Springer International Publishing, Switzerland under its CSR, Sustainability, Ethics and Governance series. The Book is available both in e-version and hard copy from Springer as well as Amazon and many other online book stores all over the world.rajiv-williams
