We take this opportunity to introduce to you this year’s “Report on CSR in Bangladesh 2018: Achieving Impact through CSR Action”. Both corporate and the development sectors have been working in partnerships with state actors to bring about sustainable economies around the globe. This is more recently becoming a significant phenomenon whilst we engage with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the well being of the society and socio-economic progress at each country level. Today’s efforts for a sustainable world through CSR actions will create tangible and intangible impact which we as nations need to measure – what ways can we realize the changes to which we are contributing as an individual entity or organization or institution, as a community, as a country as a whole which is on the positive journey to achieve sustainable development. The private sector is investing heavily on infrastructure, access to health, quality education, women’s empowerment, child care facilities, access to safe drinking water & hygiene, climate change & environmental issues, etc.

In order to create a sustainable tomorrow we need to engage our youth as the centre of our actions. Mobilizing youth to discuss, debate and embed the SDGs through the academia and build strong value driven global citizens who will ultimately take leadership roles in all spheres of the economy.

The CSR Centre would like to recognize the contributions and specially thanks to Mr. Arif Khan Joy, Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Youth & Sports, Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh as well as Md. Zillar Rahman- Secretary, Ministry of Social Welfare. Our appreciation also goes to HE Hiroyasu Izumi, Ambassador of Japan and HE Julia Nibblet, High Commissioner of Australia.
