Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) can best be understood as “the continuing commitment by businesses to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families, as well as of the local community and the society at large.”
It is about complying with human rights and environmental laws, fair business practices and regulations. Also, giving it back to the society in the form of initiatives and projects that directly benefit and have a positive impact on the lives of local communities.
Crown Group has tried its best to work for the community in its own ways, and is happy to see the change it has brought to the lives of the community it has positively impacted through CSR initiatives.
