Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has been a growing trend
among corporations in India and throughout the world. This study
documents the ITC PSPD social responsibility towards the local
communities and natural resource management that address the
elements of corporate social responsibility. Study focus on ITC's
social forestry programme. The programme is for the economic
development of poor tribals and schedule caste through financial
assistance to reclaim their wasteland and take up multi-species
plantations to promote economic development in an environmentally
sustainable manner and without posing a threat to their
food-security. The study shows that partnership has provided
opportunity for the company to accommodate the socio-cultural
aspects of the local communities. For the time being, in short
term, company would not gain economic benefit from the amount of
wood produced under social forestry plantations partnership, but
more by sharing the risk (and benefits) with local communities by
establishing plantations partnership. However the challenges are
quite complex and the long-term viability of partnership depends on
a continuing and dynamic process.
