Tata Sustainability Group Plays Three Major Roles

TSG assists this process by developing, sourcing and making available process documents, handbooks, manuals etc. in all the areas that it works on - environmental, CSR, stakeholder engagement, materiality, sustainability strategy, volunteering and disaster response. It also compiles the global and national standards covering reporting, measurement protocols and so on and makes this available to group companies.
