Corporate Social Responsibility – India
As a global biopharmaceutical company, our greatest contribution to society is making medicines that help people live longer, healthier, more active lives. This is the core of what we do. But our company vision - to improve global health in the 21st century - demands that we do even more. It calls us to continue along our company's distinguished path of giving back and lifting up in new and ever-better ways.
At Lilly India, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) aligns business operations with social values: integrating the interest of all stakeholders into the company policies and actions. CSR focuses on the social, environmental and financial success of a company with the overarching goal of positively impacting the society, while achieving business success. It reinforces our commitment to operating ethically and fairly and with respect for the needs of Local communities and of society at large.
In India, we are committed to improving the world around us, and demonstrate that commitment via a number of child education and healthcare focused corporate responsibility projects. In addition, we work in our local community to improve education, hygiene and healthcare standards.
Details of these projects are listed below in accordance with Section 135 of the Companies Act, 2013 and are overseen by a Corporate Social Responsibility Committee comprising of Company Directors and a number of key representatives from across our business. We can confirm that any surplus arising out of the CSR projects or programs or activities shall not form part of the business profit of the company.
