Tata Motors on July 7, 2021, 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 a statement to the media the company informed that "In an extraordinary year marked by the pandemic causing the 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 sanitisers 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 the 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.
