CLP India Corporate Social Responsibility Policy

The CLP India Corporate Social Responsibility Policy establishes a common and coherent approach to CSR among all corporate functions and business units. This facilitates an organized and efficient deployment of CLP India’s resources in order to contribute to the development of the communities in which its serves.

1) Vision
CLP India is committed to a socially-responsible corporate growth. It seeks to be an active participant in the social and economic development of the communities in which it operates, while meeting the interests of all its stakeholders.

2) Scope
The CSR Policy applies to all legal entities of CLP India. It is set in place to establish a recognised framework and delineated parameters for the company’s CSR activities. CLP India’s community investment activities will focus on the needs and priorities of the local communities in which it operates.

3) Policy guidelines
Mutual trust, respect and integrity are key pillars to CLP India for building relationships with its community and business stakeholders. The contributions made through community investment initiatives are aimed at delivering a positive impact directly to those communities. These initiatives include: collaboration; capacity-building and skills development; employee volunteerism; and strategic giving. CLP India commits to:
  • Undertaking proactive engagement with stakeholders to actively contribute to the socio-economic development of the communities in which it operates;
  • Supporting projects or programmes that reflect the needs and expectations of local communities and are sensitive to prevailing cultures, traditions and values;
  • Engaging in long-term partnerships with credible, national, regional and local community organisations, non-governmental organisations, and charities;
  • Creating a positive footprint in society by creating an infrastructure for inclusion and empowerment for communities;
  • Focusing on educating women and children and the underprivileged by providing appropriate skills, training and infrastructure;
  • Supporting the development of basic nutrition and health care facilities in rural communities;
  • Encouraging employee participation in volunteering;
  • Evaluating contributions and the impact that they make.
CLP India’s focus areas include:
  • Education and training: CLP India supports initiatives that advance literacy so that rural communities, and those disadvantaged, can make informed choices based on a holistic understanding of the environment they live in.
    Specific activities focus on investing in the education and skills development of children and women in the rural communities surrounding our operations. CLP India believes that quality education is the first step in building a skilled and developed community, and by providing training and skills development initiatives, it can help empower women and the next generation to drive and sustain their own personal and community development.
  • Sustainable communities: CLP India seeks to improve quality of life for our local communities by supporting initiatives that provide for the socioeconomically disadvantaged. Some of these initiatives include: increasing access to healthy food; providing vital materials; opportunities for physical activity; and local tree planting and sustainable environment initiatives.
  • Healthcare and sanitation: CLP India operates in rural locations, where communities rely on limited healthcare resources. Company’s rural development programmes provide mobile medical facilities, social education courses on mother and child nutrition, HIV/AIDS awareness and vaccination programmes as well as providing funding for paramedical training for local community members.
