CSR
 
For over 150 years, we have been serving the communities in which we operate. Community is pivotal to the Tata mission and is at the heart of everything we do, how we think and who we are.
Our CSR programmes aim to be relevant to local, national and global contexts, keep disadvantaged communities as the focus based on globally agreed sustainable development principles and be implemented in partnership with governments, NGOs and other relevant stakeholders. Tata companies are involved in a wide variety of community development and environment preservation projects.
In FY19, the group has spent INR 1,095 crore on CSR expenditure and has positively impacted 11.7 million lives.
The Tata group’s activities relate to education, livelihoods and skill development, rural development, water and sanitation, healthcare and strengthening services.

Our Approach
10 core principles of csr at tata
Our core CSR principles drive us to implement effective initiatives and create a positive impact in the society.
1
Beyond
Compliance
While all CSR interventions shall fully comply with the relevant laws of the land in which they operate, they will strive to meet core needs, even if it is beyond what is mandated.
2
Impactful
Interventions will focus on impact on communities and to this end, all companies will work collaboratively and synergistically on a set of agreed Tata group Focus Initiatives.
3
Linked to
Business
All companies may seek business benefits and leverage their core competencies while undertaking CSR activities. However, community benefits will have to be paramount and clearly defined.
4
Relevant to National
& Local Contexts
The CSR initiatives must be closely aligned with and relevant to the local and national contexts in which the company is located.
5
Sustainable Development Principles
All CSR interventions will follow sustainable development principles - they will factor social, human rights and environmental impacts in their design and execution.
6
Participative
& Bottom-up
Communities must be central to the interventions and they must be actively involved in identifying the issues to be addressed and in the management and monitoring of the interventions.
7
Focused on
the Disadvantaged
Special care must be taken to ensure that the needs of the most disadvantaged in the community - in terms of gender, ethnicity, disability and occupation - are addressed.
8
Strategic &
Built to Last
By design, all CSR initiatives shall ensure that communities can sustain them on their own, beyond the involvement of the Tata group. Hence, the initiatives must be part of a long-term CSR strategy.
9
Partnerships
All CSR interventions will be done in partnership with institutions that are close to the ground - community organisations, NGOs, companies (within & outside the Tata group) and government: local, state and central.
10
Opportunities
for Volunteering
The CSR initiatives will be designed to provide a range of volunteering opportunities for Tata employees.

In a world where every corporate is carrying out community initiatives, we ensure that the Tata group continues to stand out for the quality of its CSR and its service to the nation’s development. We understand that climate change will render the most vulnerable even more so and unable to deal with the impacts. In recognition of this fact, we at the Tata group are working towards embedding climate resilience aspects into the design of our interventions and building capabilities of communities to deal with extreme weather events and chronic impacts of climate change alike.
