THEME FOR CSR SUMMIT & AWARDS 2021

IN PURSUIT OF

As the nation celebrates the auspicious 50th year of its glorious independence, Bangladesh can look back and reflect on its robust socio-economic development, that has made the world sit up and take notice of its endless potential. Throughout this impressive journey, there have been a number of benevolent organisations and iconic individuals who have partnered with the government, institutions and communities in their plight towards sustainable development.

Gearing up to achieve middle-income status and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) laid out by the United Nations, it is imperative to manifest a collaborative approach through meaningful partnerships between the government and organisations with exceptional Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, in order to unlock our true potential. A Better Tomorrow CSR Summit/Awards celebrates some of the most remarkable and impactful CSR initiatives that encapsulate the indomitable resilience of our people, striving towards a better future.

Now, more than ever, we must adapt and realign our objectives to ensure sustainable nation-building and propel the country to newer heights – in pursuit of A Better Tomorrow.
