Great Inititaive

Posted by Dilip Kumar Dubey,

CSR has come of age now...Compliments to Stora Enso for taking the inititiative. Worldover Paper manufacturers are considered as an industry that consumes natural resources & add to pollution. Afforeastation & Water management would be the key CSR challenges in addition to conventional People & Social issues. Wish Stora Enso & its Management ALL the Best in their endeavors...
