Good & Green

Our sustainability journey to build a more inclusive and greener world

 

As a Group, we have always actively championed social responsibility. 23 per cent of the shares of our Group's holding company, are held in a trust that invests back in initiatives that support environment, education and healthcare. Our sustainability vision - Godrej Good & Green - is to create a more inclusive and greener world. As part of this initiative, by the year 2020, the Godrej Group aspires to create a more employable workforce, a greener world and innovate for good and green products.

 

Sustainability at each of our Group companies is guided by the Good & Green goals. Each company has a comprehensive CSR policy that outlines programmes and projects to undertake that help create a positive impact on our stakeholders. The CSR committee in each company reviews, monitors and provides strategic inputs on the sustainability efforts.

 

Over the years, we have aligned our initiatives with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, and the needs of our local communities to deliver high-impact programmes.

 

Our initiatives are broadly classified under Good, our community CSR initiatives and Green, our sustainability initiatives at our manufacturing plants.
