Policies

Policies and Model

The Policies and Model for Corporate Sustainability emanate from the Tata Philosophy based on the powerful and benevolent visions of the founders.

In a free enterprise, the community is not just another stakeholder in business but it is in fact the very purpose of its existence.

Advancement of the Nation through improving the industrial and intellectual condition of the people is yet another guiding principle which is integrated in the Policy and the Action Plan.
