CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
We believe Corporate Social Responsibility is a critical mission that is at the heart of everything we do, how we think and who we are. Tata group is committed to integrating environmental, social and ethical principles into the core business, thereby enhancing long-term stakeholder value and touching the lives of over a quarter of the world's population.
WE SPECIFICALLY IDENTIFY AND EXECUTE
A SET OF GROUP CSR PROGRAMMES AIMED AT CREATING NATIONAL AND GLOBAL IMPACT
IN IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF THE COMMUNITIES WE SERVE.
Our CSR programmes aim to be relevant to local, national and global contexts, keep disadvantaged communities as the focus, be based on globally-agreed sustainable development principles and be implemented in partnership with governments, NGOs and other relevant stakeholders.
Message from the Chairman
In the Annual Group Leadership Conference in 2015, I shared my view that to ensure long-term stakeholder value creation, we need to focus on sustainable profitable growth. Implicit in this is the fact that we must integrate environmental, social and ethical principles into our core business. The Tata Sustainability Policy that I released in June 2015, crafted in consultation with the Tata Global Sustainability Council, outlines our sustainability principles and commitments.
The Tata group has a rich history of building and running businesses that create value responsibly and improve the quality of life of communities we serve globally. Our group mission asserts this and our refreshed Tata Code of Conduct too emphasises this. So, community engagement, or CSR as it is now called, is an integral component of business sustainability simply because it is right and not just because the law requires us to do so. It is core to our being. It defines us.
Our CSR approach envisages we evolve and execute strategies to support communities in partnership with governments, civil society and relevant stakeholders. Key to this approach is our employees who generously give of their time, experience and talent to
serve communities. Many do this in their own time and our companies encourage and facilitate them to do so. At the group level, our Tata Engage programme builds on this tradition. We as a group are amongst the top 10 corporate volunteering programmes in the world. I would like to set a target of achieving a million volunteering hours by our employees so that we can make a real and huge difference to the world around us.
Our companies work towards empowering people by helping them develop the skills they need to succeed in a global economy, which we have now consolidated into a Group CSR programme called Tata STRIVE. We equip communities with information, technology and capacity to achieve improved health, education and livelihood outcomes. We know that we share this one planet with so many other living things who have a right to its resources and we work towards enabling them to get their fair share. The website provides a glimpse of our more recent contributions to communities and the environment. It is neither meant to be exhaustive nor detailed. But I hope it conveys the range of work our companies do in and our commitment to communities across the globe.
