ABOUT CSR CENTRE

The CSR Centre, which was established in Bangladesh in 2007, pioneered the Corporate Sustainability Agenda by emphasizing CSR and Sustainable Development.

As the global focus on CSR shifted towards responsible and sustainable business practices, the CSR Centre collaborated with various partners, including Private Sector, Government of Bangladesh, and Development partners, to address and implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Today, sustainable development has become an integral part of the CSR landscape, and the CSR Centre plays a pivotal role as a catalyst for change. Bangladeshi businesses have made significant progress in adopting responsible business practices over the years through global compliance. The primary goal of the CSR Centre is to promote better business practices based on international and ethical standards through collaborative efforts. Its activities include providing advice on CSR strategies, promoting exemplary CSR practices, and engaging the private sector to support sustainability initiatives for socio-economic advancement.
