CSR has over years evolved from being considered an internal voluntary organizational policy to mandatory schemes at regional, national and even transnational levels. In a crude way, it is a form of “Conscious Capitalism” where capitalist corporations become more conscious of the society, the environment that they inherit, leverage and utilize to make their goals happen. The Visvamitra International Award for CSR is reflective of the central principle by which Sage Visvamitra lived. It honours all corporates who are self-aware and dutiful enough to support the society and environment they make use of, every day.
