CSR Impact Assessment

As CSR laws evolve, the intent is shifting towards making a real and sustainable change in the community. Impact Assessment is typically performed for projects sponsored by CSR departments and foundations. It is focused on evaluating the impact on the community due to various initiatives undertaken by them by either hiring an external agency or performing Impact Assessments on their own. In 2021, the CSR law in India made it mandatory to conduct independent Impact Assessments for CSR projects for companies having a CSR amount of Rs. 10 crore and above.

The move will further improve the ease of doing business and the quality of CSR projects while enhancing disclosures and transparency. The organisations have taken the new rule well, as it will also help bring out the best and the most effective CSR practices in the ecosystem for a better and sustainable future.

Having sound experience in Impact Assessment CUTS International has initiated to conduct the CSR Impact Assessment under the new guidelines. For 40 years, CUTS people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects.
