The CSR Centre has been regularly publishing an annual Report which gives an opportunity to share best CSR practices in Bangladesh as well as highlight some extremely pertinent global and national issues and perspectives. The objective is to disseminate to our readers and supporters that CSR implementation processes are becoming a necessity not only for business but also for other stakeholders who contribute to socio-economic development.

Today we are happy to share the Report on CSR in Bangladesh 2016: “Responsibility Towards a Growing Economy”. I would like to thank the companies, organizations and individuals who have been kind enough to give us their time by sharing their views and opinions. Through the interviews, articles and case studies we have tried to give you a glimpse of the ongoing challenges faced in the world today and those good CSR initiatives at a national level as we focus on three areas of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – Sustainable Cities & Communities, Climate Change and Trade and Investment.

I would specifically like to mention that we appreciate the valuable insights given by H.E. Marcia Bernicat, Ambassador of the United States of America to Bangladesh, H.E. Ahn Seong – doo, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Bangladesh and Mr. Christian Ewert, Director General, Foreign Trade Association (FTA) on the perspectives of CSR and private sector mobilization. Also a special thanks to two of our esteemed Board Members of the CSR Board of Trustees ASM Mainuddin Monem, Deputy Managing Director, Abdul Monem Ltd. & Mr. Mohammed Abdur Rahim, Vice Chairman, DBL Group for their contributions.

We do hope that in the coming years we will have more opportunities to share CSR best practices by companies as the CSR Centre moves forward as the catalyst for change in Bangladesh through enhancing CSR approaches both nationally and globally.
