CSR in Pakistan

February 21, 2011 at 6:54 PM Leave a comment

The Express Tribune – apparently a Pakistani news partner of the International Herald Tribune – publishes an interesting reflection on the proper role of CSR in the corporate world.

First, the author, Citizens Foundation VP Ahson Rabbani, concedes a point we’ve hinted at before, to wit: Businesses do a lot of good in their for-profit activities alone:

Businesses support society in a number of ways. Foremost among them is providing goods and services to meet the needs of consumers. Other major contributions include providing employment opportunities to public and paying taxes for the functioning of government.

The rest is nothing terribly new for those familiar with CSR best practices, but it’s interesting to learn that corporate philanthropic opportunities are being examined in Pakistan.
