The CSR Centre is a unique organization in Bangladesh. Initiated and established by the private sector, it aims to contribute to the achievement of the human development targets set in the Millennium Development Goals through private sector development.
As a joint focal point of the United Nations Global Compact and the lead promoter of the Global Compact Network Bangladesh, the Centre has worked in the readymade garment sector to promote the Global Compact principles, including labor standards, health and safety, women’s empowerment, social compliance and sustainable business practices. The CSR Centre is also the founding member of the South Asian Network on Sustainability and Responsibility, a regional network working collaboratively for long-term economic development at the national level.
