When we form familiar bonds, we help make people and communities more resilient. To share the strength for the long term, we engage 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
Chair, Aditya Birla Centre for Community Initiatives and Rural Development
“Inspired by Birla Carbon’s parent company and its foundation, our aspiration is ‘to actively contribute to the social and economic development of the communities in which we operate’. In doing so, we can help build a better, sustainable way of life for the weaker sections of society and raise the human development index of our country.”
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, spread over 5,000 villages globally where over 60% live below the poverty line.
Each facility develops its own approach, ensuring that its activities target issues of specific relevance.
All our facilities have community engagement strategies in place, building close ties with those impacted by our operations.
