Building sustainable relationships with all our stakeholders and creating shared value are key to our corporate philosophy.
We create value for our communities through multiple initiatives as part of our CSR programmes; and by partnering with other stakeholders like suppliers and dealers. They are critically linked to our manufacturing business.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
The guiding philosophy for our CSR initiatives is 'More from Less for More People'. It implies achieving greater impacts, outcomes and outputs with strategic CSR investments, and the efficient deployment of financial and human resources.
Our CSR initiatives envisage meeting the existing and emerging needs of the community through the development of customised programmes and adopt an entire life-cycle approach.
Through our Affirmative Action programme, we reach out to the historically marginalised groups and 40% of our CSR budget is earmarked for programmes towards their upliftment. This is done through education, employability, employment and entrepreneurship.
