Following Initiatives are given by Canara Bank:

Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR is an integration of business operations and values, whereby interests of all stakeholders including investors, customers, employees, the community and environment is reflected in company’s policies and actions.

It is a concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and interactions with their stakeholders on a voluntary basis. CSR is a tool that invokes the participation of corporate citizens for addressing larger societal issues such as poverty, hunger and social justice. It synergizes efforts of corporate and social sector agencies towards sustainable growth and development of social objectives at large.

CSR was initially a voluntary effort of the corporate organization to contribute to welfare of the society, to which it owes its existence and derives its strength. Governments around the world are increasingly establishing mandates for Corporates to shift from a purely bottom line approach (profit orientation) to triple bottom line approach (people, planet and profit).Companies Act 2013 is a step in that direction mandating companies to spend a minimum of 2% of their net profit on developmental activities.
