Tata group companies are strongly driven by international benchmarks for sustainable practices in business. But a greater portion of what the group does in this sphere is by choice and conviction. From this flows its support for endeavours to conserve plant and animal species, improve land and water use, and protect forest tracts and green sanctuaries.

The group's contribution to conservation falls into two categories: the efforts of different Tata companies, big and small, to preserve and enrich the environment in and around their areas of operation, and the philanthropic thrust of the Tata Trusts, which support a diverse cluster of non-governmental organisations working in areas such as the management of natural resources, community development and livelihoods.
