Over 7.5 lakh people benefitted from community programmes during the year
Tata Motors, India’s leading automobile company, today published its 7th Annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report describing the intensive and holistic efforts undertaken during FY20-21 towards becoming a more responsible corporate citizen by driving inclusive growth with social equity in communities; strengthening sustainable development; and actively participating in the nation building process.
In an extraordinary year marked by the pandemic causing suffering of unprecedented proportions to individuals, institutions and communities at large, Tata Motors expanded its CSR footprint to cover all 28 states and 8 union territories across the country.
The Company supported Covid-19 relief efforts by providing assistance to over 1.4 lakh people including migrants, daily wage earners, those who lost livelihood, and those who were left stranded or forced to seek shelter in transit camps. Food, masks and sanitizers along with information kits on precautions to be taken for safety, health and hygiene, were arranged for thousands of truck drivers, the unsung frontline heroes who played a stellar role in ensuring that the wheels of nation kept running with seamless transportation of supplies, even as the nation remained suspended in lockdown. Additionally, the company donated Rs. ~7 Cr towards Covid-19 relief, 50% of which was contributed by the company’s employees.
Tata Motors also remained steadfast in its efforts to address some of India’s most pressing developmental challenges through its flagship welfare programmes in the areas of Health (Aarogya), Education (Vidyadhanam), Employability (Kaushalya), and Environment (Vasundhara). Its progress on the pledge to make the impact of CSR self-sustaining gained momentum with beneficiary communities increasingly owning the programmes. Cumulatively, the company’s efforts positively impacted over 7.5 lakh lives during the year, with over 45% beneficiaries coming from SC and ST communities.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. S J R Kutty , Chief Sustainability Officer, Tata Motors, said, "CSR is deeply engrained in our DNA. The scope and depth of our engagement with communities have become richer, more holistic and self-sustaining with time. While the pandemic demanded an immediate response to support communities, we embraced new models and formats to gain scale and momentum with higher levels of empowerment and self-sustenance across all projects in our key thrust areas – Health, Education, Employability and Environment. I am grateful to the Board and leadership at Tata Motors for their encouraging guidance, the CSR teams and colleagues nationwide for their dedication, our developmental sector partners and communities for their faith, resolve and resilience that ensured this accelerated progress in such trying times."
