With the increasing pertinence of sustainable development and socially acceptable industrial growth, the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a business practice plays a vital role in global economic governance. The management practices with respect to CSR has contributed significantly to an Indian approach of sustainability, especially as a country with lowest level of GNP per capita and highest level of CSR among the Asian countries. India has been the first country in the world to have a mandatory CSR law for Indian companies since February, 2014. The seminar presents the law and then discusses the issues and concerns associated to the mandatory CSR law in India, whether it is going to be a boon or a bane for this fast growing economy, fighting the forces of globalization, resulting increase in competition and the pressure to be profitable. It also presents managerial perception and practice of CSR across various industrial sectors.

Avdelningen för arbets- och organisationspsykologi ansvarar för dagens extra seminarium.
