Our Sustainability Strategy
Our long and rich history of giving back to our communities—under the guidance of our Founder, Shiv Nadar—was built on the values of innovation, entrepreneurship, humanity and a people-centric culture.
We are committed to long term value creation for all our stakeholders and our philosophy has always been about incorporating the right environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices to ensure a sustainable present and future. Our holistic approach is designed to maximize our contribution towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Our ESG Focus Areas
We conduct materiality assessment periodically to identify and prioritize topics material to our business operations. The stakeholder engagement inputs, regulatory requirements, global trends and peer benchmarking are fed into our materiality exercise.

- Climate Change
- Human Capital
- Local Hiring
- Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
- Talent Attraction and retention
- Work Environment
- Corporate Citizenship
- Sustainable procurement
- Sustainable Impact on clients
