The CSR Committee seeks to build on the CSR framework of the Companies Bill and support its member companies in integrating these ideas into their ongoing practices. It provides a forum for members to meet for ineractive sessions and address questions on various topics related to CSR to support companies’ unwavering commitment toward a social purpose.
The committee has produced several compendiums/books on CSR activities of members showcasing the achievements of U.S. companies in the CSR sector. The Committee aims to meet four times a year, often inviting specialized speakers to gain a better understanding of emerging CSR trends. AMCHAM has an MOU with USAID and they play an active role in the committee.
