Core to the company’s philosophy, CSR has been an integral part of NTPC’s business of power generation and lighting up the lives of millions of Indians. NTPC’s spirit of caring and sharing is embedded in its mission statement. We firmly believe that communities located in the vicinity of our projects as well as those displaced by them are important partners/stakeholders in India’s growth story. As good neighbours, we have built strong partnerships with them through a slew of well-conceived community development intervention programmes.
Based on our dedication to the cause since our inception, NTPC has a comprehensive Resettlement & Rehabilitation (R&R) policy covering community development activities. Our policy grows wings at the project sites the moment the project takes off. Thereafter extensive peripheral development activities are taken up along with the project development. There is a separate CSR-Community Development Policy which covers a vast gamut of activities starting from the grassroots at the unit level right up to the regional and national level including implementation of key programmes through our very own ‘NTPC Foundation’.
We are proud that our CSR initiatives and programmes are benefitting over a million of our countrymen in over 500 odd villages in the neighbourhood of our stations and plants thanks to a vigorous structure, well documented policies and a streamlined process.
NTPC is also a member of Global Compact Network, India and confirms its involvement in various CSR activities in line with 10 Global Compact principles and shares its experiences with the world via “Communication on Progress”, a public disclosure.
Focus areas / CSR Initiatives
Like the colours of a rainbow, The Corporation’s involvement in community development projects/ CSR covers a diverse range of issues such as basic infrastructure development, education, community health & sanitation, capacity building and gender empowerment. The projects are customised based on specific local requirements and guided by extensive Need Assessment Surveys and consultations through various participative forums like Village Development Advisory Committee, Rehabilitation and Periphery Development Advisory Committee etc. The active participation/engagement and ownership of these initiatives by the local communities is the key to the smooth and successful implementation of these schemes.
