The Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) has launched a dedicated CSR Portal. The portal aims at streamlining the receipt and disposal of CSR requests from various organizations and institutions. A press release on the launch was issued on 7th November, 2023.

It is noteworthy to mention that IREDA is a Government of India enterprise under the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. It plays a vital role in achieving Sustainable Development Goals, particularly in combating climate change. It has previously also launched initiatives such as the Whistle Blower Portal launched in 2021. It was the first Central Public Sector Enterprise (CPSE) to provide such an online platform.

The new CSR Portal will be accessible 24×7. It incorporates a CSR policy and proposal checklist, thus providing a comprehensive framework for the examination of CSR requests. This initiative aligns with IREDA’s commitment to transparency and efficiency in executing social welfare initiatives as part of its CSR efforts.
