Message from Head CSR

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has its own force and standing by virtue of being the only aspect of the corporate structure whereby companies invests solely towards the betterment of the planet and its people. Overall, there is a palpable shift in consciousness, acknowledgement, practice and implementation so far as CSR in India is concerned, and these are exciting times for all of us in this domain.

CSR at Hero MotoCorp is steadily making impact through various programmes focused at achieving our vision of greener, safer and equitable world. While environment focused initiatives are primarily focused at increasing the green cover through large-scale planting and conserving energy through solar lights and propagating usage of LED lights, our road safety focused projects are helping in bringing about the much-needed behavioural change among road users. Investments made towards equitable world primarily focus on gender parity and women empowerment, education, preventive healthcare, skill development and promotion of sports. A special focus is also on supporting specially-abled individuals.

Interestingly, all our projects are meeting their hypothetical goals and benchmarks and are giving appreciable social returns on investments (SRoI).

We believe that it is our ‘responsibility’ to be a good corporate citizen and subsequently we have invested in social and environmental programmes with a long-term view – one that leaves room for inputs, assessments, learnings and evolution. All these programmes are in sync with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030.
