NOIDA, India, July 4, 2023 HCLTech, a leading global technology company, won the National Water Award 2022 for its water conservation and management initiatives in India through community action and innovative technologies.

The National Water Awards have been instituted by the Ministry of Jal Shakti, Government of India and HCLTech won the honor in the Best Industry for CSR Activities category.  

Through HCL Foundation, which delivers HCLTech’s corporate social responsibility agenda in India, and other water conservation initiatives, the company has harvested 57.9 billion liters of water and rejuvenated over 200 water structures till date.

HCLTech’s interventions in water conservation align with the Government of India’s Jal Shakti Abhiyan Program, which focuses on replenishing water sources, conserving water bodies and increasing green cover for enhancing groundwater recharge. These interventions address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation) and SDG 15 (life on land).

HCLTech is implementing a unique initiative to boost biodiversity along river Ganga’s catchment by planting Rudraksha and other native species in Uttarakhand. Other projects include rejuvenating the Periyar Canal in Kerala, removing invasive species growing on the riverbed of Vaigai in Madurai, installing rooftop rainwater harvesting structures in corporation schools in Madurai and Noida, and helping poor farmers convert their wastelands into cultivable land through small-scale rainwater harvesting techniques in the Hardoi district of Uttar Pradesh.

This award reinforces our efforts to ensure equitable and viable water stewardship with a range of long-term programs, prioritizing water sustainability and community involvement in rural and urban areas in India,” said Dr. Nidhi Pundhir, Vice President, Global CSR, HCL Foundation.
