Corporate Social Responsibility

Nuvoco have been long committed to sustainable development; pursuing a strategy that combines industrial know-how with performance, value creation, respect for employees and local cultures, environmental protection, as well as conservation of natural resources and energy. Nuvoco has been able to give back to the local communities in which we operate by sustainable communities across six cement plants; thereby making difference in the lives of over 1,98,000 people residing in 103 villages across the north and east regions of India.

Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes fall under 5 pillars of Health (Swasth Bharat), Safety (Surakshit Bharat), Education (Sakshar Bharat), Employability (Saksham Bharat) and developing Infrastructure (Sanrachit Bharat). We consider it as our inherent responsibility to provide a safe and healthy environment for all our stakeholders; not limited only to our employees and work towards a goal of ZERO HARM.

Swasth Bharat (Health)

Through Swasth Bharat, we provide access to primary health care, improved sanitation and safe drinking water to our communities. Our cement plants dedicate a significant part of their overall CSR efforts to Health and Sanitation through a range of programmes. This year, more than 96,400 community members around our plants have benefited through our efforts.

Surakshit Bharat (Safety)

As the name implies, under Surakshit Bharat, we strive to build awareness on safety and stimulate behavioural change in the communities living in close proximity of our operating units or even associated with us. Implemented by our teams across all plant locations; the programmes cover a range of topics that include road and home safety, attention to health and risks of avoidable diseases. This year we reached out to over 23,600 people across locations through various platforms like Nukkad Natak (street plays), training and awareness camps.

Sakshar Bharat (Education)

Through Sakshar Bharat initiatives, we provide access to new age education to children in rural areas; and have touched over 7300 students. We follow a unique approach where our units partner with the state government and education authorities to improve the quality of education and infrastructure in schools. Students are provided opportunities to pursue higher education through computer training, and also receive career guidance and counselling through trained counsellors.

Saksham Bharat (Employability)

Improving livelihood by imparting new skills to the youth and women to enable them to become self-reliant is driven under Saksham Bharat. Today these programmes have matured from being just classroom sessions to linking individuals and self-help groups to income generation activities. This year more than 2,000 people benefited through our various efforts under Saksham Bharat.

Sanrachit Bharat (Infrastucture)

Sanrachit Bharat projects are geared towards improving the quality of life by developing community infrastructure where we operate. By constructing and repairing roads, providing water storage and distribution facilities, as well as refurbishing school buildings, we have been able to help approximately 68,700 people in communities and villages around our plants this year.
