relevant to your stakeholders. Thismakes it easier for your stakeholders to reviewwhat they consider is important
without necessarily going through thewhole report. The logical flowwould also incorporate each issue alongwith a
description of actions taken to address such issue. Furthermore, the theme can reflect and support any CSR
statements or commitments youmake.

TheCSR report is also intended as a tool to ensure continuous improvement. After communicating theCSR report
and ensuring that the report has been read, gather feedback from the stakeholders and general readers as well.
Then begin planning for next year, incorporating all your learning’s.
