Positive attitude. Positive outcomes

As a global organisation, Essar strives to conduct all its activities in a socially responsible and sustainable way. Take a look at how the Essar Foundation is making sustainability a reality.

All interventions of the Foundation straddle the people it works with and those it works for. So the vision entails holistic development that is human development centric. Environment conservation, capacity building, awareness generation and improving health and education leading to empowerment are keys to this aspect of the vision.
