Organisation

JSPL Foundation believes in building social capital in the community by facilitating social investments based on the partnership and community ownership mode. We wish to promote the concept of "Leadership with trust" working with local communities and other stakeholders for ensuring continuous and smooth operations. In order to cement this partnership further, between civil society, government and business, the Foundation pursues responsible collaboration in implementation of social development models for building synergetic partnerships.

The JSPL Foundation has been consciously aligned to the framework of Triple Bottom Line (i.e. people, planet, profit) adopted by JSPL and therefore has developed an operating system which is compatible to the environmental as well as to the community needs. This approach of using TBL as a framework with a focus on building synergetic partnerships plays a crucial role in truly building pathways for sustainable development in the regions where JSPL has been executing its CSR work. Formation of such synergetic partnerships is ensured by the following thoughtful steps:

  • Ensuring that the relevant communities benefit with the JSPL Foundation proactively responding to their needs.
  • Building and strengthening the community based institutions.
  • Working in partnership with civil society organisations (CSOs) and in convergence with the government bodies to widen the reach and leverage each partner's individual experience and expertise.
  • Providing required assistance during times of disasters

The Foundation's approach is anchored on sustainability, partnerships with the community and stake holding. This enables the communities generate their development needs, work out its implementation, forge partnerships wherever necessary, secure funds and in turn oversee their own development projects.

The Sustainable Development Goals can only be realized with a strong commitment to global as well as local partnership and cooperation. Given that the world today is more interconnected than ever before, improving access to technology and knowledge is an important way to share ideas and foster innovation. JSPL Foundation realises that there are many synergies possible and we drive to introspect as to in what way are the Foundation's activities are aligning with International, National and Local targets or policies. Our approach has also been to create shared value with creation of key institutions including those in the realms of education.

  1. Need profile analysis

The UN Sustainable Development Goals can only be realized with a strong commitment to global as well as local partnership and cooperation.

JSPL Foundation has been contributing to the society through all our sustainable CSR interventions which are also aligned with 17 Sustainable Development Goals launched by United Nations.

Those activities undertaken by JSPL Foundation pursuing the CSR projects of JSPL are not only sustainable but are also aligned with Schedule VII under Companies Act 2013.

JSPL Foundation's approach has been to create shared value with creation of key institutions including those in the realms of education. CSR activities, from crafting, assessing to reporting will benefit greatly from academic rigour. In keeping pace of these realised synergies as a result of JSPL's institution building activities, a resulting evolution will be in CSR with a strong industry-academia-policy-community partnership.
