Responsible Business India Logo Competition We at the IICA GIZ Business Responsibility Initiative are delighted to open a call

for designing a logo on Responsible Business India. ABOUT US: The IICA-GIZ Business Responsibility Initiative (project name) is a bilateral co-operation project between the Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA), the think tank and capacity development institution set up by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), and the Deutsche Gesellschaft fr Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the federally owned German international cooperation agency for sustainable development with worldwide operations. The Project began in 2008 with the objective of developing a country specific common understanding of Business Responsibility (BR), and to promote widespread adoption of responsible practices by companies. The National Voluntary Guidelines on Social, Environmental and Economic Responsibilities of Businesses (NVGs) released by Ministry of Corporate Affairs on July 8, 2011 reflect that consensus on responsible business. Responsible Business is the commitment of an enterprise to operate in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner while balancing the interests of diverse stakeholders. The NVGs articulated in the form of nine guiding principles are premised on this very philosophy. These nine principle Guidelines offer a unique Indian approach to companies to adopt sustainability in their core businesses. The principles address the triple bottom-line (TBL) of functioning that is people, planet and profit. The success of our project is reflected in the NVGs being mandated by SEBI for top 100 Indian companies. BRAND IDENITTY FOR RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS INDIA It is in this regard that the project seeks a strong brand identity in the form of a logo by the name of Responsible Business India. The logo will be used on all our offline and online platforms namely the Responsible Business India portal, social media sites, events, and literature. The identity will help us affirm our project mandate that is for businesses to be sustainable it must be conscious and committed towards its social, economic and environmental responsibilities. SHORTLISTING PROCESS Entries received till the 15th of September will go through round one of screening, done by the project secretariat.
