A message from our Managing Directors

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as a western concept looks upon itself as a business imperative for generating good will for the business amongst different stakeholders.  While we do not deny that doing good for the society will ultimately have positive impact on the business, this is not the prime driver behind our endeavors in this space. Philosophically, for us, our understanding of corporate responsibility towards society has its roots in our tradition, culture and ethos.

Sharing our good fortune and income with the needy and less fortunate is an integral part of all major religions of the world. India, one of the oldest civilizations of the World, has a 5000 year old tradition where the blessed and the more fortunate sections of the society took care of the societal welfare. We at Dalmia Bharat Group, believe in the concept of giving back and sharing with Society. And for more than seven decades, we have followed this concept of giving back and sharing with the under privileged sections of the society.

Our CSR programmes are centered on livelihood, children and education, and basic healthcare. We are operational in 30 villages, touching a population of over 50,000 people. During the financial year 2010-11, our programmes directly benefitted almost 15,000 people, the details of which are available in this report.  

During the financial year 2010-11, Indian economy, on the back of excellent performance in agriculture, clocked 8.5% GDP growth. On the Human Development Index, India has moved 13 positions in the last 2 years from 132 in 2009 to 119 in 2011 (Human Development Report 2010, UNDP). Despite these encouraging developments, India continues to have millions of its citizens officially below the poverty line. It would take perhaps a decade of current pace of growth before we would be in a position to say that India is well on its way to be a developed country.

Keeping this background in view, we at Dalmia Bharat Group stay committed for bringing down the incidence of poverty and suffering in the villages around our plant locations. We would also like to take this opportunity to reiterate our commitment towards society and environment as a responsible corporate citizen.

We as responsible Corporate Citizens are committed to working closely with government, non-governmental agencies, and all other stakeholders to play our role in lending support to the collective development efforts to ensure that India and Indians can report inclusive growth and prosperity.

The corporate sector in India is also waking up to the realities of environmental challenges such as climate change and global warming and how they can adversely affect us all in the years to come. We are committed to managing our business operations responsibly to ensure that we have a net positive impact on the environment.

In conclusion, we would like to reiterate our commitment to play an active role in partnership with all key stakeholders for making this world a better place for all.
