Companies Following CSR


CSR involves a commitment by a Company to manage its role in society as Producer, Employer, Customer and Citizen in a responsible and sustainable manner. That commitment can include a set of voluntary Principles and above applicable legal requirement that seek to ensure that the Company has a positive impact on the Society in which it operates.
