Wipro Consumer Care Charter on CSR

At Wipro Consumer Care, it is our conviction that the engagement with social issues must be deep, meaningful and formed on the bedrock of long term commitment; for that is the only way by which real change can happen on the ground. This is also reflective of the fact that such an approach serves both, enlightened business interest and social good. We run our social programmes on a strong foundation of ethical principles, good governance and sound management. This includes, among other things, holding ourselves up to public scrutiny through a framework of transparent, rigorous reporting.

Wipro Consumer Care is committed to operate and grow its business in a socially responsible way. Our vision is to grow our business whilst reducing the environmental impact of our operations and increasing our positive social impact.

Wipro Consumer Care CSR Policy

The central tenets of our approach have been the emphasis on strong, meaningful work on systemic social issues. Our CSR policy articulated below reflect these principles and strategies that have informed our long history of corporate citizenship and social responsibility.

Our approach to social responsibility and sustainability rests on three important pillars

The Strategic:

We choose domains and issues to engage with that are force multipliers for social change and sustainable development.

The Systemic:

We choose to engage on systemic issues that require deep, meaningful and challenging work. The objective is to affect systemic change at ground level over a period of time.

The Deliberative:

Our emphasis on depth and on long term commitment implies a deliberative approach that precludes spreading ourselves thin. By implication, this also means that we are wary of expanding and growing our social programmes as ends in themselves. We will continue to adhere to this approach going forward.

Governance and Management

The Board Committee is the apex body which supervises our CSR policy and programmes. The CSR Policy is approved by the board of directors and is available on the company website. The committee consists of three board members and is headed by the non-executive director. The CSR plan and spend is discussed and approved by the CSR Committee at the beginning of each year.

CSR Committee

  • The CSR committee meets at least twice a year.

  • All strategic decisions are considered by the Board in their meetings; once the decisions are taken, the operational details are handled by the CSR Committee.
