Jan. 21 /CSRwire/ - Kolkata, India - The field of Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility is steadily growing in major developing countries such as India, Russia, South Africa, China and Brazil. New initiatives and networks have emerged and the field is abuzz with a variety of different groups and actors. However, information on who is doing what, and where, is not readily available.

In an attempt to bridge the information gap, the Centre for Social Markets, a non-profit organisation based in India and UK, is publishing a series of CSR Resource Guides with partners in each of these four countries over 2003-2004.

The CSR Resource Guides will help promote networking, information exchange, action and learning with a view to enhancing responsible business practice in each country. In particular, they will draw attention to emerging indigenous experience in this field in developing countries.

The series will complement CSM’s website Portal, Clearinghouse, Regional e-list serves and other networking and information resources promoting indigenous capacity in this field in developing countries.

The first of the CSR Resource Guides, ‘Who’s Who in CSR in India: A Resource Guide’ will be published in association with Ogilvy CSR in 2004.

The Resource Guide will include a detailed Who’s Who of key actors and agencies, summaries of key literature (including Surveys, Case Studies, Initiatives, etc.) and important resources. It is intended that each Resource Guide will be updated periodically.

If you would like to be considered for inclusion in the guide - or know someone who may - please contact CSM for a questionnaire.
