IRBF Conference 2017

A responsible business is not merely about spending a small amount of profit on CSR projects nor is it just about meeting compliances. To make India a truly inclusive nation business leaders need to go beyond minimum. Thinking beyond minimum compliance to maximising the well-being of all its stakeholders. Moving from minimum CSR spending to maximising the positive impact on communities. At #IRBF2017 you will see data of how top 100 Indian companies have performed on the India Responsible Business Index, listen to leadership strategies of going beyond minimum responsibility and learn what’s driving this change.
