Introduction to the Partner

The Centre for Social Markets (CSM) is an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to making markets work for the triple bottom line- people, planet and profit. Through offices in India and the UK, and an international network of partners and associates, CSM works to accelerate the transition to sustainable development and the realisation of human rights and social justice. Founded in 2000, by Indian social entrepreneur, Malini Mehra, CSM’s primary constituencies are domestic industry and stakeholders in developing countries, and Diaspora communities in industrialised countries.

From 2007 onwards, CSM has focused its attention on three major programme areas where it seeks to bring challenge and leadership:

  • Climate Challenge India: Climate Change- lead a major public engagement initiative,to promote a pro-active domestic response to climate change in India.
  • India as a Global Player: examine India’s emergence as a major player on the global stage with particular reference to sustainability and human rights challenges.
  • Corporate Responsibility: undertake innovative research, education and leadership programmes as India Inc. goes global.

We have a deep passion for seeing really dynamic effective corporate responsibility all over the world - it's core to our values and central to our business. So being in from the start with CSR360 GPN was an obvious route for KPMG to help spread the energy and the opportunity for transformed communities where business plays its rightful role driving change and supporting the people and the places who are often forgotten and frequently in need of business engagement. Its our privilege to be involved.
