India is adapting the sustainable pattern of living and the Government has played an important part in launching the right kind of initiatives for the same. There is also a lot of help from NGO’s, nonprofit organizations and from the corporate sector to bring about these changes. Most of these companies follow the corporate social responsibility (CSR) module and engage in social service and philanthropic activities.
