Community engagement

As a member of the Aditya Birla Group, our commitment to social good is in our DNA. We believe in using our resources to provide communities with support and to enable people to improve their own lives.

At the same time as supporting charitable activities, we aim to help the communities where we operate achieve real and lasting social development.

How do we assess community needs?

Guided by the work of the Aditya Birla Group Foundation, we support the sustainable development of communities close to our plants, tailoring how we can help with their specific social issues and priorities. We want to actively participate with our communities, engaging with people to better understand the issues that concern them so we can target our interventions accordingly.

Our community engagement activities focus on four key areas, each of which is aligned to the SDGs:

Community infrastructure

In FY2018, we published the Birla Carbon Stakeholder Engagement Policy, which includes clear standards for our sites to aim for when it comes to engaging with their local stakeholders, including embedding the principles of inclusiveness, transparency, materiality, completeness and cultural appropriateness in all engagement activities.
