In recognition of its continued efforts to adopt sustainable practices that deliver 'Responsible Infrastructure', HCC was presented with the Award for Best Social Investment Strategy at the World CSR Congress Award ceremony held in Mumbai on February 18, 2013.
Over the years, HCC has constantly endeavored to implement activities that serve the well-being of the community - both in the immediate vicinity of its work operations and also beyond. In accordance with this mandate, HCC has strategically undertaken initiatives that are broadly categorized as Water Sustainability, Disaster Relief and Response, HIV/AIDS Awareness, Community Development and Education. HCC conducts a range of initiatives that include awareness programs for HIV/AIDS, capacity building of its engineers for disaster relief and restoration work, practices that ensure water neutrality at its construction sites, investment in quality education, focused community development and sustainability reporting.
The Best Social Investment Strategy award - presented by the CSR World Congress, a body endorsed by the Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs - serves to reaffirm HCC's approach towards corporate citizenship, wherein environmental responsibility and social commitment are integral components of its business goals.
