About CSR


CSR Vision

CSR is the continuing commitment by businesses to contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the work force and their families as well as the community and society at large, says the world Business council.

More and more companies across the world are joining this creed and are looking for avenues to contribute to social good. The municipal corporation too is constantly looking towards enhancing the livability of the city. As per the vision envisaged by our Hon’ble minister for urban development Shri K.T. Rama Rao these varied actors are working towards the same goal of improving the lives of people in the city, hence the need to bring in synergies between corporate’s , individuals and the municipal corporation to create a win-win situation to enhance the development potential of the city. Many corporate across the world are taking a more proactive role in trying to do business in a socially, ethically and environmentally important manner. The municipal corporation too is looking forward for partners to enhance its capabilities in technologies and shared values in augmenting civic facilities across the city. GHMC-CSR is an initiative to synchronize the civic body and private corporation’s positives towards creating more civic amenities and enhancing livability of the city.
