Our corporate social responsibilities initiatives go beyond statutory requirements.
We focus on education & sustainability, which is the non-negotiable need of the hour.
Change starts from within, so that is where we started. With each of our employee, came a child, whose life could be made better. Current stats show that more than 50% of India's population is below the age of 25, which is a very exciting time, if they are given the right education.
Our second focus is the restoration of the environment, for which, we start with basics - planting and nurturing more trees and then moving on to environmental ownership in our operations, wastes, and energy sources. Read more about it below and on our blog.
Our flagship Program, initiated in the year 2010, aims at supporting access to quality education for under-privileged children belonging to our employees through a scholarship system based on credit and financial need. We take responsibility in mentorship and shadowing of not just the child and his/her progress, but also the parents’ education and understanding of the opportunity.
Circle encompasses all of our environment-focused sustainability initiatives. We started off with the basics – planting more trees. Yes, it is as simple as it sounds & we are currently at nurturing 900 saplings! But we do more – water conservation and recycling, waste management and repurposing, R&D + internal collections that promote sustainable design to our buyers.
Columbia Sports wear in association with BSR introduced Project- HER at one of our factories. A selected group of Peer Health Educators were trained on 6 various modules and in turn these PHE’s would train the co-workers. This factory has been adopted as a model by BSR, to introduce the same in various factories in India and abroad. We have too adopted the same model and introduced it in two of our other units.
