At BALCO, the socio-economic development of communities is an integral part of the business. In 2021, we transformed the lives of about 0.15 mn people through our CSR programmes, covering 117 villages across 3 districts of Chhattisgarh viz. Korba, Kawardha and Surguja. Our approach to CSR is to forge multi-stakeholder partnerships with like-minded institutions, connected by a common core value of ‘trust’. Through such partnerships, stakeholders like government, civil society, business, academia, and local communities can come together to create a synergistic action for a sustainable future. We believe this will enhance value in the social development effort.
