Sustainability - Social

CSR Overview

Tata Power's commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is rooted in the Tata Group's ethos that is aptly expressed in the words of Tata Group's founder Jamsetji Tata, "In a free enterprise, the community is not just another stakeholder in our business, but it is in fact, the very purpose of its existence."

Tata Power has always undertaken various initiatives with an aim to improve quality of life and ensure holistic development of its surrounding communities.

We deploy development initiatives to incubate, implement and multiply diverse community-based projects and interventions, to help build a better and sustainable society through Tata Power Community Development Trust (TPCDT). The underlying goal of the interventions is to transform the lives of the community through result oriented participatory approach. The efforts are directed towards inclusive growth, so as to reach out to its nearby communities and help them build a sustainable future.
