Corporate Social Responsibility: An Overview

At Aryan, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been the cornerstone of success right from inception. The Company’s objectives in this key performance area are enshrined in its Mission statement: ''…to help enrich the quality of life of the community and preserve ecological balance and heritage through a strong environment conscience.''

We at Aryan have defined a set of core values for ourselves – Care, Innovation, Passion and Trust – to guide us in all we do. Private organizations like Aryan are essentially organs of society deploying significant public resources. We, therefore, are aware of the need to work beyond financial considerations and put in that little extra to ensure that we are perceived not just as corporate behemoths that exist for profits, but as wholesome entities created for the good of the society and for improving the quality of life of the communities we serve.

As a constructive partner in the communities in which it operates, Aryan has been taking concrete action to realise its social responsibility objectives, thereby building value for its customers. The Company respects human rights, values its employees, and invests in innovative technologies and solutions for sustainable energy flow and economic growth. In the past seven decades, Aryan has supported innumerable social and community initiatives in Koira & Mahulsukha touching the lives of millions of people positively by supporting environmental and health-care projects and social, cultural and educational programmes.

Besides focusing primarily on the welfare of economically and socially deprived sections of society, Aryan also aims at developing techno-economically viable and environment-friendly products & services for the benefit of millions of its consumers, while at the same time ensuring the highest standards of safety and environment protection in its operations.

Aryan has always placed a great deal of importance on the environmental impact of its operations and has taken care to ensure that the damage to the environment is more than adequately compensated. Besides creating and maintaining plantations at its various mine sites Aryan is also assisting the Forest Dept. by providing vehicles, VHF sets, engaging protection guards etc. Aryan has organized seminars in collaboration with the Forest Dept. officials for sensitizing Aryan officers especially Mining engineers regarding the need for ''eco-friendly'' mining operations.

Regular coordination meetings with Forest Dept. officials are being held both at the State and Central Govt. levels.

Aryan emphasizes on maintaining a harmonious balance between environment & mining by complying with all applicable laws, regulations & executive orders, & participates in afforestation around the mines, and minimizes wastage & believes in recycling. It also takes effective measures to control & monitor pollution. Our environmental policy is a commitment towards the environment.
