Head – Sustainability and CSR,  HCC Ltd

“Amendment in the Companies Act has shifted the CSR from philanthropy to compliance. The step ahead is the need to understand that corporate social responsibility is not a cost centre but a development tool by way of including the stakeholders. Strategically responding to the social calls will enhance the brand image and will create an enabling environment among the industry and the stakeholders. The outcome will certainly be elevated profits.”
