The new rules under the Indian Companies Act that came into effect in April 2014 require companies to spend at least 2% of its average net profit on corporate social responsibility activities. More than a year has passed for companies to comply with the law, what are some of the developments in the CSR space? How different are companies implementing their CSR activities? What are the changes that we are seeing in the non-profit sector?

Dr. Bhaskar Chatterjee, Director and CEO of the Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA) will provide us a brief introduction to the CSR India Law and the current landscape. This will be followed by a presentation from Krishna, Founder and CEO of Sattva, who will be sharing some of the latest trends on how corporates are engaging in CSR activities, touch upon some of the challenges and elaborate on some of the opportunities that corporates can focus on.
