The Parliament approved new Companies Bill, which mandates that companies of a certain size spend 2% of their three - year average annual profit towards corporate social responsibility (CSR), is a landmark one as it makes India among the first nations to have social welfare spending as part of company statute by law.

Making the most of corporate social responsibility: Smart partnering can provide a practical way forward.

CSR is a creative opportunity to fundamentally strengthen business while contributing to society at the same time. The big challenge for companies and NGOs is how to develop an approach that can truly deliver for both.

Smart partnering is emerging as a way to create value for both the business and society simultaneously. Smart partnering focuses on key areas of impact between business and society and develops creative solutions that draw on the complementary capabilities of both to address major challenges that affect each partner.

Read the handbook launched by PricewaterhouseCoopers for an understanding of CSR

The handbook builds a common understanding of the concept of CSR, based on global practices, Indian tradition, and the intent and provisions of the Companies Act, 2013. It highlights important aspects of Clause 135 of the Companies Act, 2013 and its implications on companies. A major part of the handbook focuses on the 'what' and 'how' of strategising, planning, executing and monitoring these CSR activities.

You can download a copy of the handbook from their website:
