No success or achievement in material terms is worthwhile unless it serves the needs or interests of the country and its people and is achieved by fair and honest means

Promoting Human Rights Through Due Diligence

Executed by a specialized firm adept in social compliance and sustainability, with a particular focus on SA 8000, BSCI, and WRAP standards, our due diligence procedure yields a comprehensive 360-degree analysis. This analysis not only adheres to global standards but also establishes benchmarks for continual improvement. This diligent exercise acts as a precursor to SA8000 certification. Once adopted, SA8000 standard will allow us to measure social performance, sensitize our people and encourage meaningful engagement on human rights in our direct and indirect stakeholder ecosystems. As part of our due diligence process, we have identified six categories of rights holders: Tata Power personnel (including anyone working for or on behalf of the company), contract workforce, communities impacted by our operations, customers of our products and services, and employees of value chain partners like suppliers or vendors. This due diligence process addresses a wide range of human rights issues, including forced labour, human trafficking, child labour, freedom of association, right to collective bargaining, equal remuneration, and non-discrimination, among others.
