Corporate Social Responsibility

GPCL understands that being part of this society it is its moral responsibility to aid and serve the society to the maximum possible extent. Our initiatives have been founded on the belief that the benefits of industrialization should be shared by the communities at large. GPCL has not only focused on the industrial development, instead, through its projects, it has made efforts to bring social development as well. The basic objective of CSR for GPCL is to focus on holistic development of host communities and create social, environmental and economic value to the society.

GPCL has initiated some significant participatory and non-participatory roles in the areas of upliftment of Women & Child, Food & Health sectors as well as Education to the needy. In these interventions, our objective has been to support institutions as well which provide such specific facilitation and welfare related services.
