Sector Overview

 

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 interactive 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.
