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).
