India’s Dalmia Bharat Group has won the CII-ITC Sustainability Award 2014 for ‘Significant Achievement in Corporate Social Responsibility’. The group was selected as the winner in ‘Category A’, which includes companies with a turnover of over 2000 crore. Dalmia Bharat beat nearly 20 applicant companies to gain the award, which recognises firms that have successfully included sustainability in their business model.
This is the third year in a row that the group has received an award, picking up the ‘Commendation Certificate for Strong Commitment to Excel in the Journey Towards Sustainable Development’ in 2013 and the ‘Commendation Certificate for Contributions to Sustainability and Conservation of the Environment’ in 2012.
“It is a huge honour for us to receive the coveted CII-ITC Sustainability Award for the third time in a row,” said Gautam Dalmia, Managing Director of Dalmia Bharat Group. “Corporate Social Responsibility is an intrinsic part of Dalmia Bharat. For the past 75 years, we have created and invested value in communities and will continue to do so.”
