Walking towards the second quarter of the 21st Century, this new edition of CSR, ESG and Charitable Institutions aligns with the theme of the decade. Like artificial intelligence, today global warming and climate change has also become a reality. Nature’s repulsion via many recent disasters has made mankind think and act towards its protection. Social upliftment of the economically deprived sections of the society through CSR Activities may lead to greater realisation of the need to be environmentally conscious. NGOs, commonly called trusts and societies and section 8 companies, have a great role to play to bring about the transformation.
