Internal shifts: CSR is now a boardroom priority, with top executives across industries being closely involved. 77% of the leaders reported increased alignment between CSR and business priorities.

The Equity Lens: CSR strategies are adopting the equity lens with 87% companies focusing on gender equity. However other dimensions of equity – geographic and thematic are lagging behind.

Collaboration is key: 87% of CSR leaders are interested in multi-stakeholder collaboratives with other companies, the government and other ecosystem players, believing that is the key to serving at scale.

Anticipating future trends, the report highlights that India’s top 100 leaders, who together manage a massive 48% of total annual CSR spends, will lead a sectoral shift towards catalytic funding. CSR spending is just 1.3% of government spending for social impact. The opportunity for CSR is to therefore fund innovation that can be scaled subsequently by others. CSR needs to be an impact multiplier, not just an impact creator.
