Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) can be defined as a Company’s sense of responsibility towards the community and environment (both ecological and social) in which it operates. Companies can fulfill this responsibility through waste and pollution reduction processes, by contributing to educational and social programs, being environmentally friendly, and undertaking activities of similar nature. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not charity or mere donations. CSR is a way of conducting business, by which corporate entities visibly contribute to the social good. Socially responsible companies do not limit themselves to using resources to engage in activities that increase only their profits. They use CSR to integrate economic, environmental, and social objectives with the company’s operations and growth. CSR is said to increase the reputation of a company’s brand among its customers and society.
Also, Karma Global does a lot of work with established NGOs in urban and rural areas. In fact, the entire team of Karma had once gone to a remote village with the help of a rural NGO and had carried out a lot of cleaning and painting work in shelter homes.
