Corporate Social Responsibility in India
Posted by Naveen S on September 5th, 2019
Corporate social responsibility in India is an issue taken seriously by Hindustan Coca-Cola. The reason? It’s more than just giving back to the community. HCCB believes that it is part of the community and must responsibility contribute to it. There is a need to enrich the lives of the people they live among. This impact must be positive and improve the lives and living conditions of the community.
Hindustan Coca-cola, as a part of corporate social responsibility in India, runs many CSR activities. These three examples will give you insight into the kind of initiatives that Hindustan Coca-Cola runs.
HCCB’s Entrepreneurship Development Program trains local community members to run their own businesses. To do this, HCCB tied up with the Centre for Entrepreneurship Development of Karnataka and ran Entrepreneurship Development Programs at Jogardoddi, Byravanadoddi, Abbanakuppe and Medanahalli.
Assisting Model Villages
HCCB lends support to model villages. Medanahalli, a village in Ramanagara located close to our Bidadi and Aranya factories, was one such model village. HCCB helped such villages grow and any missing facility was installed. For example, at Medanahalli HCCB improves facilities of Water, Health and Sanitation, Sustainable Agriculture, and Education.
Education is crucial for a community to progress. With HCCB, corporate social responsibility in India and education go hand-in-hand. In partnership with the Panchayat and the local administration, HCCB took an initiative to repair the dilapidated local school in Nemam, Tamil Nadu. The classroom was repaired, desks were added, the library restored, and books and bags were given to the students.
At the heart of it, corporate social responsibility in India is a focus for Hindustan Coca-Cola because a happy community means happy customers and happy employees. For Hindustan Coca-Cola, it’s about spreading happiness throughout the community.
