Corporate Social Responsibility

Impacting Lives

Our CSR initiatives are aligned with the requirements under the Companies Act 2013 and the Companies (Corporate Social Responsibility) Rules, 2014.

We strive to meet our commitment towards the community by committing our resources and energies to social development. We are involved in various corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities and are committed to making a difference to the communities in and around our project operations and plants. Our CSR projects include relief efforts relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting EdIndia’s efforts to leverage technology and data analytics to improve the quality of education at scale and promoting environmental sustainability and biodiversity preservation efforts.

COVID-19 Pandemic Relief: We undertook relief efforts and provided healthcare interventions to several villages in rural India. For example, we sourced and provided protective essentials such as masks, sanitizers and handwash to NC Hills Autonomous Council in Assam. We also provided ration and other essential items to the ‘Maar’ community near our NERSS project in Assam.

EdIndia’s Project Pragyan: We provided support to the EdIndia Foundation, an entity to support innovative solutions for improving the quality of education

Environmental Sustainability and Biodiversity: We are committed to expanding access to reliable power in a way that is environmentally sustainable and compatible with biodiversity preservation efforts. For example, during NER, our project spanning Assam, Tripura and Arunachal Pradesh, certain steps were taken to preserve the wildlife heritage of the region. We avoided the Borail Wildlife Sanctuary mapped active elephant-corridors, and ensured the transmission lines co-exist with wildlife by implementing initiatives such as bird deflectors and culverts.
