Abstract

Purpose

Based on a survey, this paper seeks to confirm that Indian corporates are already working on the guideline of the Global Compact.

Design/methodology/approach

The approach is theoretical with ample scope for application.

Findings

It is found that there should be a realisation that the real CSR leadership is not just putting one's own house in order, but advocating the right conditions to reward responsible practice.

Research limitations/implications

A disadvantage is the paucity of literature for the survey.

Originality/value

The paper succeeds in confirming that Indian corporates are already working on the guideline of the Global Compact, because the Indian ethos and religious values teach these doctrines from a socio‐religious aspect.
