Sustainability at Wipro is all about good citizenship

It stems from the belief that corporations are socio-economic citizens and that their objectives have to be congruent with society's goals. Today, they wield significant capacity to influence social issues, i.e. “power to do good”. This is a responsibility and must manifest in thoughtful and deliberate set of initiatives, not in charity. These must reflect the same level of rigor & strategic thinking as in business initiatives.

Wipro believes it must try to, and can make (some) lasting impact, towards creating a just, equitable, humane & sustainable society. This is reason enough to act.

Purpose:
  • Provide leadership in thought & action on key societal issues
  • Need to respond to immediate issues of current generation
  • Need to work towards building a good society for future generations

wipro cares

Wipro Cares engages with communities in our proximate locations. The primary objectives of Wipro Cares are to support the developmental needs of marginalized communities in cities and towns where Wipro has a large presence. We have four core areas of work - education, health care, environment and disaster rehabilitation. Wipro Cares is currently engaged in 12 projects across India. Through its five health care projects in three states of India Wipro Cares is providing more than 50000 people access to primary health care. More than 70000 children benefit from the six education projects in five Indian cities and one Indian village. Our project in social forestry has helped plant more than 50000 trees and has at the same time provided livelihood to around 40 farmers. Employee engagement is an integral part of Wipro Cares where we encourage employees to volunteer with our partners, acting thus as catalysts in bringing about positive change. Apart from these core areas, as part of the long term process that is typically involved in the rehabilitation of communities affected by natural calamities we offer Wipro employees the opportunity to engage meaningfully with the affected communities.
