We engage with local groups and associations to provide targeted programs, focusing on good health, quality education, sustainable livelihoods and community infrastructure, in alignment with the SDGs. Through addressing our communities’ most pressing challenges, we are helping to make local people, and Birla Carbon, more resilient. Following the global outbreak of COVID‑19, we have increased our efforts to ensure those in our local communities have access to the resources and support they need to stay safe and healthy during this difficult time.

Challenge Tested

As a global company with local connections, we see community growth and improvement as an opportunity for Birla Carbon to grow too. Every day we rise to the challenge of delivering positive change for our local communities through a range of initiatives and development programs.

We endeavor 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.”

Delivering benefits to communities

In order to deliver the best results for our local communities, we have focused on four key areas where we believe we can support the biggest growth: healthcare, education, livelihoods and infrastructure.

  • Improving access to healthcare

    As a global company, we are well positioned to create long-term benefits for the communities around us, such as enabling access to healthcare. Through a variety of initiatives, we promote immunization programs and invest in medical infrastructure.

  • Supporting young people

    Young people are the future of Birla Carbon, and we depend on our communities as a source of emerging talent. Working with local schools and educational institutions, we promote quality education through financial support, training opportunities, help with building schools and provision of learning resources.

  • Enabling communities to grow

    We want to empower people in our communities to take ownership of their own advancement. By giving people the tools they need to progress and learn valuable vocational skills, we help equip them to find fulfilling employment and improve their livelihoods.

  • Building resilient infrastructure

    As a responsible member of our communities, we believe it is our duty to partner with local people and organizations to provide practical and sustainable infrastructure solutions. In doing so, we help our neighbors access essential services and facilities.

FY2020 highlights

  • Birla Carbon pledged $270,000 to provide 11 students at Kennesaw State University in Georgia with scholarships.

    Quality education
  • In Trecate, Italy we donated a further €10,000 to help local charity organizations purchase masks for the local community in response to COVID‑19.

    Access to healthcare
  • We provided food to around 3,000 families in Angthong, Thailand during the COVID‑19 pandemic.
