For us, sustainability means not only the conservation of the environment, but also the well being of our stakeholders, communities, and the world-at-large. It is an integral part of our business, and a defining driver on our road to long-term profitability. Its entails financial growth and profit, and responsibility towards communities and stakeholders, giving back, good governance, ethical practices, and respecting the law of the land.

Seven years ago, when we embarked on our structured sustainability journey, the concept of sustainability in India was nascent. Like us, most organizations were feeling their way through the topic. While the dominant narrative at the time was sustainability as an add-on responsibility, we were absolutely clear that sustainability is a business paradigm, as important as quality. This led to the articulation of 'Alternative Thinking' -the Mahindra Approach to Sustainability. It sent out a strong message to all stakeholders that for us, sustainability is strategic to business - a platform for innovation, an operational philosophy, a powerful tool to build competitive advantage and the measure of our future readiness.

Today, each business within the group has raised the bar - they have chalked out individual business-wise roadmaps which are more focused, more relevant and more aligned to emerging scenarios and stakeholder expectations.
