Cause And Effect Of Companies Act 2013

A

Rajesh Tiwari Publisher rt@iccsr.org

The government is planning to add more teeth to the companies act by introducing the penalty clause for companies that miss the target spending repeatedly

robust and flourishing development sector is essential to India’s search for equitable, inclusive and sustainable growth. India’s development sector has evolved substantially over the last few decades and is now witnessing unprecedented growth across the value chain. With the passing of the Companies Act, 2013 the mandate for corporate social responsibility (CSR) has been formally introduced to the boards of Indian companies. In a country such as India, where one-third of the population is illiterate, two-thirds lack access to proper sanitation, and 400 million people still live on less than US$2 a day, the passage of the Companies Act should be hailed as a positive step forward in ensuring that business contributes to equitable and sustainable economic development. The industry has responded positively to the reform measure undertaken by the government with a wide interest across the public and private sector. The practice of CSR is not new to companies in India. However, what this Act does, is bring more companies into it’s compliance ambit. This should and will increase the total CSR spends. What is now getting clear to these corporates is that if this increased spending is to achieve results on the ground – then it needs to be done methodically, diligently and strategically. The CII being the leading industry body, envisions equipping companies for this shift of structured engagement with communities. It suggests steps to develop a CSR strategy and Policy and identifies the key building blocks for initiating and developing the CSR programs. It walks the CSR practitioner through some of the key choices that may be required to be made while pursuing CSR objectives and develop an organisation that is socially aware and compliant. Building a society which provides equal access to opportunities negates

disparities and, is a collective responsibility. This Act presents a unique opportunity to stand up to the challenge. Around 14,000 companies are expected to spend about Rs 15,000 crore on various social projects under the mandatory CSR spending. The government has provided a list of activities that qualify as CSR, which include measures to eradicate hunger, promote education and rural sports, protection of heritage, and environmental sustainability. On the other hand there is a risk in making CSR mandatory, companies may treat it as a “check the box” exercise rather than looking at ways to innovate and generate a return from doing social and environmental good. The Narendra Modi-led government will not let companies get away easily if they do not spend the mandated 2% of their profits on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities as specified by law. The government is planning to add more teeth to the Companies Act 2013 by introducing the penalty clause for companies that miss this target spending repeatedly. At present, non-compliance of CSR rule isn’t penalized by the Companies Law, and those unable to spend the stipulated amount can get away with some justification as has been noticed in the outcome of taxes filed for the year 2014/15. The new law, which came into effect on April 1, 2014, allows the corporate affairs ministry, at most, question the roles and responsibility of its directors, but can’t act beyond that. In future will they go beyond that? Will the corporate affairs ministry have the power to influence a penalty in case of non-compliance? Will government impose a penalty to the directors in question? In fact, even providing tax incentives to corporates, complying with the CSR obligations could work. The question is which method will the government adopt, the carrot or the stick?

CEO Of LRN:

‘Human Operating System’ Let’s Build A

This is an excerpt of a June keynote address by Dov Seidman, CEO of ethics and compliance management firm LRN, in the United Nations General Assembly Hall celebrating the 15-year anniversary of the U.N. Global Compact

share the belief that ethics lie at the heart of all sustainable human endeavor. Your leadership is an inspiration to me and countless others. We live in a fast-paced, always-on world facing the blaring assault of neverending information. Everything is faster – communication, commerce, innovation. I stand before you today with a counterintuitive message: The faster things get, the more we need to pause. Why? Quite simply, when you hit the pause button on a machine, it stops. When a human Dov Seidman being hits their pause button, they start. They start to reflect, to reconnect with their deepest beliefs. We pause to make sense, to rethink fundamentals such as the nature of capitalism and the relationship of business to society and to the natural world. And we reimagine an even more sustainable path. It has never been more urgent to pause in this deep way. The world is not just rapidly changing, it is being dramatically reshaped, faster than we have – yet – been able to reshape ourselves. Today, we live in a world of no distance. So few can affect so many others so far away in ways they never could before. A single banker can cause the market to lose billions from his desk in minutes. A vegetable vendor and a cell phone can spark a revolution towards freedom. Mobile apps are disrupting entire industries, and bringing strangers into intimate proximity, into our homes and cars. 10 | CSR Today | August 2015

Companies were once fortresses, protecting our privacy and their secrets. Today, one hacker, continents away, can expose both – enabling people to see deep into organizations and into the attitudes of the people who run them. Three hundred years ago, the Scottish philosopher David Hume observed that the moral imagination diminishes with distance. It would follow that as distance decreases, the moral imagination increases. We live in a world where moral imagination is activated. For you, as leaders, it must. That’s because our world has gone from connected to inter-connected to globally interdependent. More than ever, today we rise and fall together. What each of us feels, aspires to and imagines matters more than ever to everyone else. So therefore, the only viable strategy for winning and creating value in the interdependent world is to forge healthy, sustainable interdependencies so that we rise, and do not fall, together. This is not easy. But it’s also not complicated. It comes down to human behavior and the values that sustain human relationships. My friends, we’ve gone from an Industrial Economy – where we hired hands – to a Knowledge Economy – where we hired heads – to what is now a Human Economy – where we hire hearts. In this world where machines can out-think, out-process and out-perform us, it’s the things machines cannot do, the things that

India To Spend $8 Bln To Boost Irrigation, Reduce Dependence On Monsoon

A

total of 53 billion rupees has been allocated for the irrigation project in the current fiscal year ending on March 31, 2016, the government said in a statement. Half of India’s farmland lacks irrigation so any increase in irrigated land should help reduce the country’s dependence on the June-September monsoon, which is ex12 | CSR Today | August 2015

pected to be deficient this year, raising fears of the first drought in six years. The move may help the government’s standing in rural areas, after opposition parties stalled its efforts to effect changes to the land law that would have made it easier to push through compulsory land purchases for industrial and other projects. The government has also had to cope with a wave of suicides by farm-

ers whose livelihoods have been ruined by bad weather. Agriculture accounts for about 15 per cent of India’s $2 trillion economy, but threefifths of the population of more than 1.2 billion depends on farming for a livelihood. Shares in irrigation system providers such as Jain Irrigation Systems, Finolex Industries Ltd and Shakti Pumps jumped as much as 9 per cent in the generally flat Mumbai market following the announcement. India will also launch a national online platform this year for trading agricultural commodities, spending 2 billion rupees on the project, Farm Minister Radha Mohan Singh told reporters. Currently farmers are restricted to selling their produce at “mandis”, or market committees, in their states. The online market will aim to group 585 of these markets eventually, and 250 in 2015. The new platform will help farmers in not only securing higher prices but also in deciding when to sell their produce in the market, Singh said. Source: www.eco-business

India has approved spending of 500 billion rupees ($7.9 billion) over five years to expand irrigation in rural areas to boost crop productivity and it also plans an online agricultural market to help farmers get better prices for their produce

Steve Howard Chief Sustainability Officer Ikea

kea, the Swedish home furnishing firm, was built on the vision to “create a better everyday life for the many people” and to date, it has grown into a retail giant with more than 350 stores and 150,000 employees globally. The family-owned company is recognised not only for its functional and affordable furniture but is also building a name for itself with its trail-blazing efforts in its green energy and corporate sustainability strategies. The company is part of RE100, an initiative of The Climate Group and CDP, to encourage the world’s most influential firms to commit to going 100 per cent renewable.Under its ‘People and Planet Positive’ sustainability strategy launched in 2012, it made the commitment to produce as much clean energy as it consumes by 2020. From using sustainable cotton to recycling more than 87 per cent of the waste it generates, Ikea has won many accolades for its efforts, including the Guardian Sustainable Business Award and the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards’ Company of the Year. It has already invested 1.5 billion euros on wind and solar power installations since 2009, and will continue to invest another one billion euros into producing renewable energy over the next few years, the company said in June. The company already boasts 700,000 solar panels on its roofs and has signed up to own and operate 314 wind turbines. The Ikea Foundation, the charitable arm of the family-owned group, will also invest 400 million euros by 2020 to support communities in nations vulnerable to impacts of climate change such as floods, droughts and desertification. Steve Howard, the company’s chief sustainability officer, says investing in renewable energy makes good business sense and helps to protect the firm from fluctuations in energy costs. In this exclusive interview with EcoBusiness, Howard shares his thoughts on Ikea’s policy on renewable energy, its philosophy on sustainability, and its fastestgrowing market: China.

cover | story What’s the reason for this ambitious target of powering 100 per cent of your energy consumption with your own renewable energy (RE) production? When and how did this initiative on sustainability begin at Ikea?

Sustainability has always been at the core of IKEA’s business, and we acknowledge the fact that climate change is one of the most challenging problems facing society. IKEA is very focused on helping to tackle climate change in our own operations and in our supply chain, and we also try to inspire and enable our customers to live more

sustainably at home. As well as being good for the planet, investing in our own renewable energy makes good business sense, and can help to protect us from variations in energy costs. As a large international company we also think it is important to play a leadership role. This way, we can encourage other businesses and government leaders to be more active in tackling climate change. That is why we have become more vocal in the last two years. However we have been on the road towards a more sustainable business since IKEA was founded seventy years ago. Where would the bulk of your RE investments be in? Ikea has allocated US$1.9 billion in RE projects by the end of 2015 and a lot of them are in

wind power. Why the preference for wind compared to other clean energy sources?

We believe that wind is a fantastic resource and investing in wind farms can be the best way to increase our production of renewable electricity, from both a cost and environmental perspective. It can also help us manage our power bills. We have now committed to own 314 wind turbines in nine countries. But wind is not the only source of renewable energy that we utilise. IKEA Group also uses solar and energy from biomass. We invest heavily

in solar installations and have now installed 700,000 solar panels globally. Please share with us some of your key initiatives and investments in RE and their impact, as well as new projects? Can you share with us Ikea’s progress on meeting the 2020 target?

Last year, the IKEA Group announced the purchase of two wind farms in the United States – a 165-megawatt wind farm in Cameron County, Texas, and a 98-megawatt wind farm in Hoopeston, Illinois. Together, the IKEA Hoopeston and Cameron wind farms are expected to generate nearly 1,000 gigawatt hours of electricity per year, which is equivalent to the average annual electricity consumption of around 90,000 American households.

novation and be open to collaboration. For a science-led global healthcare company like GSK with a mission to help people do more, feel better and live longer, we have a particu-

lar opportunity to take a significant role in addressing global health burdens. And this is nothing new for us. We have a long history in both developing and developed countries. For example, our vaccines are included in immunisation campaigns in 170 countries worldwide and of the 800 million vaccine doses we delivered in 2014, just over 80 per cent were shipped for use in developing countries. But we have big ambitions, particularly for the poorest. In March 2014 we announced our strategy to increase access to healthcare and deliver long-term economic growth across Africa, by stimulating research, increasing capacity in local medicine supply, and strengthening healthcare infrastructure. Our vision is to make GSK products available to 80 per cent of the population in sub-Saharan Africa and Least Developed Countries by 2020. So, we wait with eager anticipation for the incoming Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), currently under consultation. Right now, number three seems to be the one health-specific goal, “ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all

7 Sustainability Careers with Financial Rewards While entry-level jobs in sustainability may not be as lucrative, the good news is that the pay scale gets better as one goes up the ladder by arsalan ahmed

While entry-level jobs in sustainability may not be as lucrative, the good news is that the pay scale gets better as one goes up the ladder. Generally sustainability jobs in the sciences and management pay higher than those in social sciences and humanities. Here are seven careers in sustainability that pay more than just well.

ustainability has always been the ultimate pursuit of happiness. However, most professionals who opt for a career in sustainability do so because they value the importance of preserving our environment over the amount of money they are getting in return.

The gesture to help people and the community at large is indeed praiseworthy, but the fact is that one’s own sustainability is of equal importance, especially when there are educational liabilities after graduation to clear or a family tagging along or a large amount of student loan debt.

Chief, vice-president, director – the titles generally vary, but these guys fill the top sustainability position in a corporation and rake an average salary of about $166,000 per year. They are responsible for envisioning, expanding and implementing sustainability creativities within the organization. They obviously have immense power as the buck generally stops with them when it comes to deciding how sustainability is practiced and enforced within a company.
