ITC's commitment to creating societal value is manifest in their CSR interventions, implemented under the Company's Social Investments Programme that embraces the most disadvantaged sections of society, especially in rural India, through economic empowerment based on grassroots capacity building. The footprint of our CSR projects is spread over 25 States/Union Territories covering 188 districts.
Philosophy & Policy
Recognizing that business enterprises are economic organs of society and draw on societal resources, it is ITC's belief that a company's performance must be measured by its Triple Bottom Line contribution to building economic, social and environmental capital towards enhancing societal sustainability.
Target Groups - ITC's CSR engagement is focused on two of its key stakeholder groups
- Rural communities across India where ITC has agri-business operations, a large majority of whom are small and marginal farmers.
- Communities residing in the vicinity of ITC's units - mainly rural, but also in semi-rural and urban locations.
Both groups face multiple challenges which make it virtually impossible for many to step out of the poverty trap. ITC's initiatives target the most marginalised in the community, working towards building grassroots capacity, equipping them with knowledge and empowering them with choice so that they can take actions to gain economically, environmentally and socially.
Strategy - This has led to the development of a 2-horizon strategy
The core objective of ITC's CSR initiatives is to secure the livelihoods of these marginalised communities not just for today but also for the future.
