In August the Companies Act, 2013 has been passed by the Indian Parliament which mandates companies of a particular size to invest 2% of their Net Profit in CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities. As the figure says, according to this act 22,000+ companies will spend ~USD 3 billion annually on CSR activities, starting from 1st April, 2014.
The concept of CSR is not new in India. Ever since corporate like the Tata group, the Aditya Birla group and the Indian Oil Corporation, to name a few, have been , in one way or the other involved in serving the community.
A growing number of corporates feel that CSR is not just another form of indirect expense but is important for protecting the goodwill and reputation, defending attacks and for increasing business competitiveness, however, mostly are missing their waste management and environmental policies. They are struggling to effectively deploy the capital.
Brands like Unilever have been focusing on designing a new approach for circular economy, to comply to their Corporate Social Responsibility and Extended Producer Responsibility by working with reprocessers and waste service providers to stimulate recycling and recovery of products.
