CSRBOX has been hosting the annual India CSR Summit for the past 7 years. The Summit has been the largest CSR and social impact event in the South Asia region with participation of 1800 organisations and 2400+ delegates every year.

At the 8th India CSR Summit 2021 (7th-9th Dec 2021), we hosted CEOs Forum 2021: Leadership Perspective on Profit with Purpose, with following speakers:

  • Moderator: Mr. Rajen Makhijani, Client Partner and Leadership Advisory, Korn Ferry International
  • Mr. N K Chaudhary, Chairman and Managing Director, Jaipur Rugs
  • Mr. George Mattackal, President, Asia Pacific Global Delivery Centers of Excellence, CGI
  • Mr. Aftab Ullah, Chief Operating and Delivery Officer, Brillio
  • Dr. Bhaskar Chatterjee, CEO Anil Agarwal Foundation and Chairman DLC Global CSR & Philanthropy Committee

    During this insightful discussion, the speakers shared their learnings, thoughts and experiences around the following points:

  • How do businesses look at 'profit with purpose' and how has the pandemic impacted their views on this
  • Can profit and purpose coexist for businesses in a highly competitive business environment? What are the driving factors for businesses to focus on both the Ps?
  • How has the board-room discussion shifted towards 'purpose' and what all it takes to convince shareholders for this shift?
  • Increasing global voices towards 'Net Zero' and India's own commitment of 'Net Zero by 2070' has begun conversations on how companies in India should look at their 'ESG' from a more powerful lens. What is the take of Indian corporate leadership on this?
