When you see smiling faces all around, you know you are on the right path. Sterlite Industries believes that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives are much more than ways to pay back societal debts and obligations. When we improve lives of those around us, it motivates us to contribute all the more.
Our dedicated CSR teams work with the local communities around our areas of operations. We gauge their needs and devise projects accordingly. We pay maximum attention to uplift the quality of life of women,children and youth in our operational villages.
We undertake educational, health, livelihood and infrastructure development initiatives, and encourage involvement of the communities as well as employee volunteerism.
Our Approach Through our CSR interventions, we are positively impacting lives of more than 1.4 million people across our areas of operation the country.
Our operations are located within industrial belts and hence there have been no direct negative impact on the lives of the locals. Barring operations for BALCO, there are no indigenous population surrounding the locations of other operations. Operations of BALCO take place in or adjacent to Indigenous Peoples’ territories, and though we do not have formal agreement with the Indigenous Peoples’ communities, there has been no case registered against us either under Tribal Act or any Human Right Act on indigenous community. There have also been no incidents of violations involving rights of indigenous people.
Our business and operations have generated local employment opportunities to many like the contractors, the community members who have benefitted from our income generation and livelihood programmes.
