A multinational shipping company, with several companies and brands operating under them, approached us to develop a group-level CSR strategy. This strategy was to be designed to adhere to the global sustainability mandate as well as involve company-level CSR initiatives already being implemented.
Through our streamlined process of mapping stakeholders and causes, pointing towards current and potential regulatory mandates and suggesting a governance structure and framework for allocation of resources, Samhita put together a framework for the client to develop a CSR Policy. This group-level policy definition has led to individual companies under the group approaching us for implementation of their respective CSR strategies.
We are now working with these companies to design unique programs for their key stakeholders, define strategies to implement these programs and support on-the-ground implementation of selected programs.
