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.

The core of Wipro’s social and community initiatives is focused on responsible and deep engagement with all stakeholders – present and future generations. eco-eye is the way we see ourselves and our engagement with stakeholders - on the journey to more sustainable business practices. The initiative focuses on reducing ecological footprint of our business operations, engagement with employees and our supply chain, partners and customers to create a more sustainable society, and transparent reporting/disclosures. The ecological dimensions of our operations are focused on energy efficiency, water efficiency, waste/pollution management and recently enhancing biodiversity– we have set stretch targets for each of them. Moving beyond mere compliance with laws and regulations, engagement with employees focuses on health and safety, people development, and increasing diversity and inclusivity at workplace. Close collaboration with suppliers to reduce their own ecological footprint and help meet and exceed labour and human rights norms is a key focus area. For customers and our business partners, we offer a host of solutions and products to help make their own businesses more sustainable. Transparent reporting is important for our internal and external stakeholders – and we are responsibly proud of our achievements in this area – leaders in CDP, inclusion in DJSI and NASDAQ 100, rated among the top in OeKom apart from host of others.
