We are here: CSR Initiatives
Under the Govt. Scheme, GVK has provided housing facilities to 1000 underprivileged people in Kothur village of Nellore in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

GVK Foundation manages a degree college at Indukurupet village in Nellore District of Andhra Pradesh. This college offers quality education to students from surrounding areas. The GVK Foundation also sponsors and provides scholarships for students across disciplines.
Various GVK Projects are eligible for carbon credits under Clean Development Mechanism.
Bengaluru International Airport is one of the first Indian airports which has migrated its ground vehicles operation to Biofuel (supplied by KSBDB) with an objective to enhance energy efficiency and reduce carbon footprint.
CSIA is the first airport in India to voluntarily and proactively initiate its carbon footprint mapping process.
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 built-in in the 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.
