Abstract:

The aim and objective of this research will be to analyse the various corporate social responsibility provisions, which are required to be complied by various companies operating within India in pursuance of the Companies Act, 2013. Not only this, special emphasis will be laid upon biodiversity CSR, which is often neglected by the Indian legislature as well as corporate firms operating within the country. However, it’s time that these companies recognise the responsibility towards the biodiversity of our country, specifically in cases where corporate operations of these business entities, can cause an adverse impact upon our wildlife by causing injury or damage, that can further endangered various species of India.

Lastly, this research will also provide for an analysis of the various case laws through which the judiciary has made an attempt to protect and preserve our wildlife by directing corporate firms to implement biodiversity CSR, so as to fulfil their responsibility towards the biodiversity of our country. The researcher will also provide for an analysis of the various biodiversity CSR programs, which have been undertaken by Indian as well as foreign companies, to protect the biodiversity of India. Consequently, the researcher will provide for various findings and recommendations, which will be provided under this study, which if implemented by the Indian legislature as well as government can help in minimising impact of corporate forms upon our biodiversity through concentrated efforts to maximize biodiversity CSR within India.
