Sustainability has risen to be one of the defining issues of today, demanding an efficient business response. We at JSW, have also identified that our businesses do have an impact – environmentally, socially, and ethically. In addition to that, we also contribute through opportunities which may have an unfavourable effect on people, in terms of health and safety.
Having said that, we also recognise and have immense pride in the fact that our business is, and can continue to be, a force for good, bringing prosperity to our workers and to the communities in which we operate. We’re doing so by delivering economic returns to those who choose to invest in our businesses, enabling wider national benefits through the taxes that we pay to governments, and providing technical innovations and improvements in how we operate which can actually help to mitigate those negative impacts which are an inevitable result of what we do.
While we at JSW acknowledge the negative impact of our businesses, we have also thoughtfully provided solutions in order to bridge the gap between achieving the business vision and incorporating sustainability.
Our Vision Statement
‘It is our Vision here at JSW that we are able, both now and in the future, to demonstrably contribute in a socially, ethically and environmentally-responsible way to the development of a society where the needs of all are met, and to do so in a manner that does not compromise the ability of those that come after us to meet the needs of their own, future generations.’
We at JSW, from across businesses and the different levels of hierarchy, are committed to transforming our Sustainability vision into reality.
In fact, by endorsing and placing in-depth data in the public domain, our Chairman and Managing Director, Mr Sajjan Jindal, has given his commitment to both our Vision and to the Sustainability Strategy through which we aim to make that Vision a reality.
This commitment can, and will, be cascaded down throughout all levels of the JSW Group and across our supply chains as part of our Sustainability Strategy, providing the impetus to create, implement and then maintain the systems and structures that will be needed to not only deliver our Sustainability Strategy in the short-term but to embed it for the future into everything we do.
Our Sustainability Strategy
Our sustainability strategy is designed based on 7 key elements. In order to achieve our ultimate objective, we are building a strategy that will develop a structure which can be then applied across the JSW Group. A systematic structure will ensure consistent implementation of these crucial factors, which will then continue to operate effectively.
