Profit with purpose: CSR & ESG for Impactful Business
 

A socially responsible business refers to an organization that conducts its operations keeping in mind the betterment of society and its values. With businesses engaging in various activities to achieve their profit-oriented goals, there is an inherent responsibility for them to adhere to the laws, social norms, and values.

Being a socially responsible oganisation is no longer a trend but a non-negotiable business need. Research indicates that companies can improve their reputation, recruit top talent, encourage consumer loyalty, and boost efficiency and profitability by aligning with basic principles such as financial soundness, environmental concern, and legal compliance in addition to building good brand recognition. All these factors are important in creating enhanced profitability and fiscal sustainability. This win-win strategy benefits both the company and society through NGOs, resulting in a positive influence on a larger scale. The concept of socially responsible business goes beyond merely engaging in CSR activities and ultimately aims to create a market for itself.
