This workshop shall provide insights for development of an effective CSR Agenda, its efficient implementation and impact maximization.


Our training programme is designed to impart an understanding of the basic principles and implications of CSR and its underpinning concepts of implementation, evaluation and reporting, latest development and emerging issues in the field of CSR.
