TERUMO PENPOL PRIVATE LIMITED
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY POLICY
Our Mission, “Contributing to Society through Health Care” underlines our societal commitment.
We, TERUMO PENPOL Pvt Limited and our affiliates, take initiative to contribute to harmonious and sustainable development of society and the earth through all business activities that we carry out in each country and region. We comply with local, national and international laws and regulations as well as the spirit thereof and we conduct our business operations with honesty and integrity.
Wherever we do business, we actively promote and engage, both individually and with partners, in social contribution activities that help strengthen communities and contribute to the enrichment of society.
The CSR Policy: Contributing to Society through Health Care is an interpretation of the TPPL’s basic policies related to social responsibility for stakeholders inside and outside the company.
Terumo Penpol shoulders the corporate social responsibility through its activities related to promotion of preventive healthcare, support to local government schools for better learning and identifying and nurturing hidden talent in less privileged children. Being socially responsible, we have designed this policy reaching out to to the “quality of life” challenges of the disadvantaged communities. We have therefore determined to bring together our existing operating principles into one framework policy under the heading of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) .
The Companies Act, 2013 makes Companies operating in India to consciously work towards this objective and to spend a portion of their profits for sustainability. The word "sustainability‟ includes social wellbeing, resilience and adaptation across four domains: ecology, economics, politics and culture.
2. Rationale for Policy:
We earn our profit by utilizing different resources of the society, and so a portion of the benefit derived by us should be channeled for the betterment of society. Children, women, uneducated, and unemployed would be the beneficiaries of CSR activities. While contribution to the local community is a good objective, we should also choose social, environmental and economic activities that contribute to society at large. CSR activities add to the Goodwill of the company within the society as one that cares for the community.
