Press Release from Centre for Social Markets
Kolkata, India - The field of Corporate Social and
Environmental Responsibility is steadily growing in
major developing countries such as India, Russia, South
Africa, China and Brazil. New initiatives and networks
have emerged and the field is abuzz with a variety of
different groups and actors. However, information on
who is doing what, and where, is not readily available.
In an attempt to bridge the information gap, the Centre
for Social Markets, a non-profit organisation based
in India and UK, is publishing a series of CSR
Resource Guides with partners in each of these
four countries over 2003-2004.
The CSR Resource Guides will help promote networking,
information exchange, action and learning with a view
to enhancing responsible business practice in each country.
In particular, they will draw attention to emerging
indigenous experience in this field in developing countries.
The series will complement CSM’s website Portal, Clearinghouse,
Regional e-list serves and other networking and information
resources promoting indigenous capacity in this field
in developing countries.
