Since the Tata group was formed more than 150 years ago, it has served as the custodian of public good, dedicated to making a positive social impact. 66% of Tata Sons’ equity is held by the Tata Trusts and dividends flow directly to support the philanthropic work of the Trusts. Over the past century and a half, the Tata group has calibrated its mission to address India’s most urgent needs. Check the carousel below to access sector-specific stories and initiatives.
To encourage collaborative volunteering across group companies and leverage the combined power of over 700,000 Tata employees, their family members and retirees across the globe, we introduced a group-level volunteering platform, Tata Engage in 2014. The Tata Engage platform helps volunteers to engage with the community by contributing their time and skills through the three distinct formats – experiential volunteering events through Tata Volunteering Weeks, skill-based, weekend projects through ProEngage and volunteering for Tata Disaster Responses. Over the past five years, the Tata group has clocked over 1 million volunteering hours annually, placing us among the top 15 corporate volunteering programs globally. In FY20, the group achieved 1.52 million volunteering hours, creating a milestone with hours in excess of 1.5 million for the first time.
