Increased use of renewable energy sources and promotion of energy conversation are the main pillars of a sustainable energy supply. The intervention of innovative renewable energy technologies through various CSR initiatives could positively enhance the quality of life with a sustainable impact on the society.
Businesses can make a very positive intervention in the society by adding renewable energy projects to their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, which will help to improve the socioeconomic conditions of the marginalized. Renewable energy is an attractive option because it substitutes for fossil fuel and the economic feasibility of renewable energy technologies is improving with time.
The aim of the conference is to align the public-private sector led CSR initiatives to the goal of sustainable development and bridge the understanding of the evolving CSR landscape in India which is increasingly driven by the development agenda of the Government of India.
