India Inc is turning more socially responsible thanks to its female execs

India Inc is taking its corporate social responsibility (CSR) seriously and woman executives are leading the change. In 2018-19, around 76% of the top 100 Indian-origin companies by market capitalisation (N100) spent more than the legally-mandated amount on CSR, according to a recent report by KPMG. Around 62% of these companies have a woman member on their CSR committees, according to KPMG’s India CSR survey report 2019.
