Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

CRISIL Foundation
The launch of the CRISIL Foundation on March 6, 2013, is a significant step forward in CRISIL's mission to make markets function better. CRISIL is already known as a responsible corporate citizen, thanks to initiatives like Pragati, its series of financial awareness workshops in North-East India. However, the Foundation provides a structured and strategic framework for achieving the company's Corporate Social Responsibility goals. The Foundation's two primary goals are to increase financial awareness and environment conservation. It is CRISIL's way of giving back to society by 'doing good with what it is good at' as a global analytical company.

The reason for identifying the twin objectives of financial awareness and environment conservation is that CRISIL has always stood for financial inclusion through better awareness, and for greener ways of doing business.

In its first year, the CRISIL Foundation will partner with non-governmental organisations EducateGirls and Rashtriya Gramin Vikas Nidhi (RGVN) respectively to positively impact the lives of 50,000 girls in 4,000 Rajasthan schools, and 3,500 women and youth in Assam, Tripura and Sikkim under Pragati.
