The greatest challenge of the 21st century is to raise people everywhere to a decent standard of living while preserving much of the rest of life as possible – Edward O Wilson
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.

Role of Corporate Social Responsibility in India
The Corporate sector has always been a forerunner when it comes to social responsibility initiatives. Whether it is educational or healthcare initiatives or the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Initiatives; the corporate sector has made a significant contribution in the progress of the Indian society. The CSR in India and around the world work as per the law of the land and follow the ethical guidelines of the region.

The good thing is many businesses in India are following the basic principles of CSR. Along with following ethical business practices, these companies also participate in various social service activities, with an aim of doing welfare in the society. CSR doesn’t focus working with an economic interest for the company. Its main focus are working towards a sustainable environment, sustainable society and forming a sustainable economy
