Tata Steel’s CSR To Touch Two Million Lives By 2025
Kolkata: Tata Steel reached out to 1.4 million people living in and around its operational areas and made a positive impact on their lives in the financial year 2019-20 with its continuous focus on CSR activities.
The company aspires to reach out to at least two million people annually and make a meaningful difference to their lives by 2025, said an official statement.
Tata Steel’s signature CSR programmes are designed to create replicable, large-scale models in areas such as education, healthcare, tribal identity and livelihood generation. Focussed programmes on agriculture, water conservation, rural sports, nutrition and urban slum development are aimed at empowering local communities. The idea in the long term is to create a lasting impact on the communities.
The company was able to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic on time, reaching out to more than half-a-million lives across the country. The Company is also committed to co-creating scalable solutions for the communities it serves.
Sometime back, the Company undertook an extensive exercise to understand the perception of communities it intends to serve over the next 10 years. The insights gathered helped the Company develop its long-term CSR strategy.
