Dear Professional Colleague,

I have great pleasure in inviting you to the 10th International Conference on Social Responsibility, being held on 5 - 6 February 2016, at Hotel Taj Lands End, Mumbai. The theme of this international conference is “Embedding CSR Mandate into Corporate Strategy”.

The International Standards organizations (ISO) issued the International Standard ISO-26000, covering 'Guidance on Social Responsibility', followed by Government of India's (Ministry of Corporate Affairs) issued of National Voluntary Guidelines on Social, Environmental and Economic Responsibilities of Business in July 2011. The guidelines use the term 'Responsible Business' instead of CSR.

The best approaches to CSR have been so fragmented and disconnected from business and strategy, as to obscure many of the greatest opportunities for companies to benefit society. If, instead, corporations were to analyze their prospects for social responsibility, using the same framework that guide their core business choices, they would discover that CSR can be more than a cost, a constraint, or a charitable deed - it can be a source of opportunity, innovation, and competitive advantage.

Then in 2013, India became the first country in the world to mandate Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) spending, through a statutory provision under the Companies Act 2013, followed by Rules governing the same in 2014.

From drawing board to boardroom, and to shop-floor, in this Conference we would like to examine the corporate strategies of a number of companies at the forefront of strategic CSR, as well as their alliance partners, and explore the evolution of corporate citizenship. The choice is no longer one of 'whether or not?' but rather of 'How to?' and 'To what extent?’

This International conference will provide a platform to interact with movers and shakers and CSR professionals, from around the world. There are many ways you can contribute and benefit from the Congress- presenting your Business solutions and case studies for sustainability through social responsibility or, show casing your products, profiling your brand as a sponsor, exhibitor or advertiser or becoming a partner to promote the conference among your contacts. Together, we could help promote your business strategy to include 'CSR, as a Legally Actionable Business Agenda'.

IOD looks forward to welcoming you, at this National Conference.

Justice M.N. Venkatachaliah
