GVK believes that its leadership stature goes beyond business success in terms of numbers and figures. It is more about fulfilling its social responsibility in the larger sense of the word. Social responsibility is not about supporting a few visible causes but having an overall sustainable growth and development of the society. In line with this philosophy, GVK has initiated its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) through GVK Foundation. GVK Foundation has thus, extended initiatives in various areas like providing emergency response services, housing for underprivileged people, education, health and hygiene, community-based programs, empowerment and entrepreneurship development, arts, music, sports and a number of other socio-economic and cultural activities.
Sustainability remains a constant in all of GVK's projects and initiatives. One of the highest priorities during project implementation and planning is safeguarding the nature. Instead of being an add-on, sustainability has always been a starting point at GVK and is inbuilt in all our processes . All projects under the GVK portfolio conform to the international norms of sustainable development.
Along with reducing carbon footprints, GVK collaborates with local communities to educate and inform the people about environment and sustainability. GVK believes that guidance and education are essential while including people in the sustainability initiatives.
