At the apex of the industrial recycling pyramid lays sustainable steel which is 100% recyclable. At Jindal Stainless, we work today to build a better tomorrow.
We believe that efficient sustainability goes beyond conservation. It starts with building a culture around the workspace where every individual takes mindful steps towards the environment.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the strategic approach towards sustainable community development and the key to inclusive growth. This gives the employees and the management an opportunity to get connected with each other and the community at large. Our aim is to provide a platform that empowers the community through need-based programmes, making them self-reliant through a process of direct intervention.
Jindal Stainless Foundation (JSF), registered under the Registrar of Societies, is the CSR arm of Jindal Stainless, established to work for the greater good of the community. We aim to focus on ‘Beyond Business Responsibilities’, stressing upon the importance of seeing a change in the lives of communities around our plant locations as well as other geographies. Our key focus areas are Women Empowerment, Education and Skill Development, Integrated Health Care, Environment Sustainability, Community Development, and Integrated Farming. Under the able guidance of Mrs. Deepikaa Jindal, Chairperson, Jindal Stainless Foundation, our seasoned CSR professionals implement several initiatives through national and international civil societies and non-government organisations. Under the aegis of JSF, it is our earnest endeavour to uplift our surrounding communities and transform the lives of people who cross our path.
JLS Foundation has established the Jindal Institute of Industrial Training in Hisar (Haryana) and Jajpur (Odisha) to impart training to the youth in order to make them economically independent and self-reliant. The courses taught at these institutes have been developed keeping in mind the existing and future market demands. The institutes are equipped with modern training infrastructure and instructors who individually mentor the students.
Non-Formal Education Centre's are run in communities and provide basic education to children who are first generation learners and drop outs. The centre's aim at providing basic education to the children and eventually link them to formal schools. Remedial Education Centres provide support to older students in subjects like Mathematics, English, and Science. Efforts are also put in to ensure that the children who have enrolled in schools do not drop out due to poor performance.
The Company has enabled over 200 SHGs to make regular monthly savings and inter-loaning. These groups have successfully engaged with local banks and disbursing loans and subsidies. They have also been exposed to various training programs on enterprise development and marketing of products. Our focus during the years has shifted from a Self Help Group (SHG) model to identifying micro-enterprise opportunities for women that encourages entrepreneurship. With various capacity building measures and trainings, we are inculcating confidence among women who are now eager to take initiatives on their own.
