Suzlon Group's CSR arm completes 10 years
Suzlon Foundation, the CSR arm of Suzlon Group, completes 10 years of making a difference. Suzlon Foundation was established with the goals of ensuring minimal environmental impact, enabling communities to realize their potential and empowering employees to be responsible civil society partners. These goals are aligned with Suzlon Groups vision of Powering a Greener tomorrow.
Since inception, Suzlon Foundation has endeavored to make a real difference to the communities, rather than just being a charitable foundation. In these 10 years, through an integrated approach and collaboration with multiple stakeholders, Suzlon Foundation has created a self-sustaining ecosystem for communities across the value chain of their operations.
Dr. Jasmine Sofia Gogia,
General Manager, Suzlon Foundation said, Our initiatives in the past decade have always focused on overall sustainability and balanced growth of communities in and around our area of operations. Our CSR programs are identified collaboratively with the villagers based on their needs and are mainly focused on enhancing the livelihood, health, education, civic amenities and educating on natural resource management. The foundation has evolved to adapt to the changing needs, however, our commitment to make a real impact to society has been unwavering.
