Corporate social responsibility, often abbreviated "CSR," is a corporation's initiatives to assess and take responsibility for the company's effects on environmental and social wellbeing. The term generally applies to efforts that go beyond what may be required by regulators or environmental protection groups.
CSR may also be referred to as "corporate citizenship" and can involve incurring short-term costs that do not provide an immediate financial benefit to the company, but instead promote positive social and environmental change. This concept came into being when large corporate thought of giving a part of their profits back to the society.
SGI has been involved with CSR activities since its inception. The students and faculties together have formed a CSR club which holds regular activities every Saturday. The CSR club members distribute food packets, old clothes etc to the underprivileged. They also hold small activities and awareness drives amongst them. Involving students as volunteers for such activities inculcates in them a sense of responsibility and sensitizes them to the less privileged. They also develop a habit of giving back to the society.
