In keeping with the rich Tata tradition of giving back to society, corporate sustainability lies at the heart of Tata Consultancy Services' corporate culture. Our Corporate Sustainability Report summarizes our initiatives for the betterment of society, communities and the environment in the financial year April 2009-March 2010.
The report, mainly pertaining to our global operations, focuses on significant economic, environmental and social factors that impact the way we do business, including our relationships with key stakeholders. The Sustainability Reporting Guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) are used to illustrate our progress and performance in corporate sustainability activities.
The guideline states that "The GRI Reporting Framework is intended to serve as a generally accepted framework for reporting on an organization’s economic, environmental and social performance. It is designed for use by organizations of any size, sector or location.……The GRI Reporting Framework contains general and sector-specific content that has been agreed by a wide range of stakeholders around the world to be generally applicable for reporting an organization’s sustainability performance."
Our assessment is that this report is in accordance with GRI application level A+. This report has been externally assured by KPMG Advisory Services.
TCS continues to place a strong emphasis on societal needs and in recent years, we have addressed environmental and climate change issues with increased urgency. As we expand our global presence, we develop community engagement programs in each country, appropriate to the local needs of the region.
