Overview

The Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) under Ministry of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises introduced the CSR Guidelines in March 2010 for the Central Public-Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) to commit themselves to the concept and practical implementation of Corporate Social responsibility. These guidelines look deeper into the matter of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility.

Under these guidelines, the CSR interventions are required to be thoroughly and scientifically researched and on this basis the intervention programmes have to be formulated and implemented. For this, the Tata Institute of Social Sciences was invited to set up the National CSR Hub in 2010 and hence the HUB was formally launched on 21st March 2011.

 

…The DPE guidelines on CSR and Sustainability for CPSEs, place a thrust on CSR and sustainability, on capacity building, empowerment of communities, inclusive socio-economic growth, environment protection, promotion of green and energy efficient technologies, development of backward regions, and upliftment of the marginalised communities.

Given the statutory background, TISS is committed towards creating an enabling environment for impactful social investments through the creation of a transparent, scientific and technology driven platform.
