CSR and SDGs

At Hero MotoCorp, we realise that the group as a large business entity has a critical role to play in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and this can only be achieved through sustainable business practices as well as focused social investments.

The Global Goals are focused at addressing the world’s most pressing social, environmental and economic challenges and so is our CSR strategy. Our CSR framework is planned to make maximum measureable impact through multiple social interventions. The framework also focuses on structural impact evaluations and reporting on social returns on investments.

Our broad and transparent reporting mechanism, as well as two-way communication (which also includes third party assessments) with all stakeholders – investors, employees, customer, vendors, suppliers, governments as well as the communities around our areas of operation – helps us in assessing the wider impact of our business operations and strategising each action to ensure that they help us in doing our bit towards meeting most SDG targets set for 2030.
