The 7th CSR Impact Awards is an initiative of CSRBOX to encourage companies, CSR foundations and CSR implementing agencies to deliver high impacts through CSR projects, and adopt a multi-stakeholder approach, leading to excellence in project outcomes. This initiative focuses on identifying high-impact CSR projects in 15 categories at the pan-India level. The Awards seek to appreciate project-specific impacts made by the organizations in particular thematic areas to set the benchmark in project planning -to- project implementation.

It is the seventh edition of our annual Awards. The previous six editions of the CSR Impact Awards (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019) were highly appreciated by companies, implementing partners, and CSR foundations.

In 2018 and 2019, we received an overwhelming response with 270 application forms across various categories of education, WASH, livelihood, etc. Over 25 exceptional projects across the categories coming from Vedanta Limited, Jindal Steel & Power Limited (JSPL), Hero Moto Corp Limited, Bajaj Foundation, Cognizant, Tata Steel Limited BOSCH India, ICICI Foundation, ITC Ltd., IndusInd Bank, Honeywell, Lupin, Glenmark Foundation, Aditya Birla Group, Ericsson, BMC Software, Johnson and Johnson and many more were recognized.

The Awards are presented at India CSR Summit every year. In 2021 due to COVID, we will be hosting the India CSR Summit either in virtual mode or hybrid mode where we will be inviting 120-150 delegates for the Awards ceremony and key sessions of the event. This decision will be communicated via our event website by 10th Nov. 2021
