We work with local groups and associations to provide targeted programs, primarily focusing on good health, quality education, sustainable livelihoods and community infrastructure, in alignment with the SDGs.
Mrs Rajashree Birla
Chairperson, Aditya Birla Centre for Community Initiatives and Rural Development
“All of our projects are based on the needs of the communities that live close to our plants. Our projects are very inclusive. We treat our social projects, just as our business projects. We have a vision – which, in a nutshell, epitomises inclusive growth, and dignifying the lives, of the underprivileged.”
Our efforts are aligned with and form part of the work of the wider Aditya Birla Group Foundation, which focuses on the all-round development of the communities around our plants.
The Aditya Birla Group Foundation reaches out to 7.5 million people, annually – over 60% live below the poverty line.
Each site develops their own approach, ensuring that their activities target issues of specific relevance.
All our facilities have community engagement strategies in place, building close ties with those impacted by our operations.
