The Dalmia Bharat Group was founded in 1939 by the late Shri Jaidayal Dalmia.

Having been around for more than 80 years, the group now enjoys leadership in core sectors such as Cement, Refractories and Sugar.

The Cement business, through sustainability initiatives, has achieved the lowest carbon footprint in the cement sector globally and is amongst the most efficient cement companies in the world.

Being one of the leading sugar producers in the country, the sugar business is geographically well diversified and committed to ‘Green Growth’ which empowers the group to enhance value for all its customers.

Traditionally present in southern, eastern, northern and north-eastern India, the group, through its refractories business, has expanded its footprints globally by making various acquisitions in Germany and other European countries.

In the last sixteen years, the group’s sales have grown at a CAGR of 24% to over ₹ 12,100 Cr in the year 2020 and the market cap has also grown to ₹ 10,000 Cr in the year 2020.

As of today, the group’s companies collectively employ over 8500 people.

The group’s strong commitment towards nation building has been represented in the construction of landmark projects such as the Hirakud Dam, the Dhola Sadiya Bridge, the Kochi Metro and the Chennai Metro.

Created with the sole purpose to assist in building India, the Dalmia Bharat Group’s growth has always been intertwined with that of the nation.

Our Vision, Goal & Values

about our values

Our Vision

To unleash the potential of everyone we touch.

Our Goal

To be in the top two in all our businesses on the strength of our people and the speed of our innovation.

Our Values

Values by Us

Integrity

Wisdom is knowing which is the right path. Integrity is taking that right path. Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral values. It is our aptitude for doing what’s right and not what’s easy. We believe it is an opportunity to come out of our comfort zone and create a bridge of faith with those around us. We nurture a habitat where success is measured by conduct and individuals never stray from their line of duty.

Humility

Humility is the concern of what is right and not who is right.

Perfection is impossible without humility. Humility is our ultimate strength. It is our willingness to follow, as much as our capacity to lead. It discovers the true measure of our own self and transforms us into being open towards learning and growing. Humility is the bliss of an equilibrium that lets us scale to the next level of greatness that is captured in a single word and summed up in one philosophy.

DBG Values
trust

Trust & Respect

Trust takes years to build, seconds to break and forever to repair. Respect is earned, trust is gained.  The two together remind us of our unique worth, multiply our combined strength and the miracles that each of us are capable of.

Commitment

Motivation gets you started, Commitment is what keeps you going.
We believe commitment is power which transforms a promise into reality. It is the bond that glues us with our goals and helps us realise that success is never attained by accident. It makes us believe that where there’s a will, there’s always a way.

Slide

Bold

In Belief: Be Fearless & Have No Self Imposed Limits

Have the courage to ask tough questions and express disagreements at times for the larger good. It’s crucial to stay brave in difficult situations and act as change agents to lead the team effectively.

In Letting Go: Let Go of What Does Not Serve the Bigger Purpose

You only have so much emotional energy and time everyday. Keep your eye on the goal. Choose your battles wisely because if you fight them all, you will be tired to win the really important ones.
Slide

Fast

In Decision: Timely Decisions Make Or Break an Organization

“Done” is better than “Perfect”. Use your judgment and discipline to prioritize and then proceed with speed. Effectiveness begins with elimination. Do fewer things and do them well. Remember the 80:20 rule. Adopt digital ways and tools to make a quick impact.

In Execution: A Decision Executed Completes the Strategy

Strategy without execution is a mere conversation. Quickly breathe life into the idea, support it with meticulous planning and close the task within deadline. Share the plan with complete clarity to the team and build wider ownership right at the beginning.

In Response: Your Response Time Decides Your Character

Think in hours and days, not weeks and months. Always remember, either you meet the timelines or you don’t. There is no “I tried my best”. Respect people’s time and never keep them waiting for your response. Respond without the need to be followed upon.
Slide

Collaborative

In Relationship: Relationships Are Built When You Proactively Reach Out

Connect Proactively. Reach out to people. Show that you care. It’s not about how experienced or knowledgeable you are, but more about how you take others along.

In Working: Work Becomes Experience When You Do It Together

Coming together is just a beginning. Staying together is progress. Working together is a success. And the most essential ingredient for this success is the ability to listen, in order to build a shared understanding.

In Solutions: Innovative Solutions Emerge When You Work Together

Remember if a challenge exists, so does the solution. Stay flexible to work on an idea, deliberate together and convert an idea into a solution collectively. When you collaborate, you can create magic.
Slide

Trusted

In Words: Your Words Reflect Your Thoughts

No relationship can survive without honesty and reliability, no matter what your title is. You should mean what you say & keep your promises. If you want to be trusted, you must be true to your word.

In Motives: If the Motive is Noble, It Will Lead to Greater Good

Without a noble motive and purpose, action has no meaning and lacks foundation. Act with stature and noble intent. Offer a compelling example that inspires others in a way that they emulate.

In Solutions: Innovative Solutions Emerge When You Work Together

Remember if a challenge exists, so does the solution. Stay flexible to work on an idea, deliberate together and convert an idea into a solution collectively. When you collaborate, you can create magic.
