Kalam asks corporate world to share social responsibility

President A P J Abdul Kalam on Monday said that the social responsibility of the corporate companies has increased with the growing privatisation of the economy, and it needs to be further enhanced.

New Delhi, May 7 : President A P J Abdul Kalam on Monday said that the social responsibility of the corporate companies has increased with the growing privatisation of the economy, and it needs to be further enhanced.

In his address at the FICCI-SEDF Corporate Social Responsibility Award here, Kalam said, "With rapid growth of private sector in the country, I visualize that education is now an important part of corporate social responsibility, as much as it is the responsibility of government."

"Corporate houses can make an important contribution by adopting the schools particularly in rural areas in their region and providing infrastructure for the schools in the form of clean drinking water, toilet facilities, transportation facilities for children coming from far away distances, equipping the sport complexes and providing computing facilities for technology assisted learning," he added.

Stating that the country has to improve the energy situation and should strive for energy independence, Kalam said that energy independence has to be achieved through three different sources namely renewable energy (solar, wind and hydro power), electrical power from nuclear energy and bio-fuel for the transportation sector.

"The industrial houses can take up urgent action for conservation of energy, promoting use of renewable energy to the maximum extent in their plants and facilities. They can also work in the development of solar energy systems and wind energy systems either on stand alone mode or in partnership," he added.
