how it begins

Our Journey

CSRC was established in 2015 as a non-profit organization in Pakistan to serve as a think tank and advocacy platform for sustainable business and social ecosystems in emerging economies. Yet on the advice of the advisory board to make the Center financially sustainable, the management of CSRC registered it as a private limited company with Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan in 2016. Since then, CSRC is serving as a social venture with financially sustainable model by following policy of ‘profit with purpose’ and ‘doing good by doing well’. CSRC has committed its resources to further research and policy support in the areas of sustainable economic development, business strategy and social ecosystems in developing economies. The management policy and culture of CSRC as organization is based on the principles of DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion).

Today CSRC has evolved into a number of ventures in line with its vision and mission, a brief of which is as follows.
