Corporate Social Responsibility


At TCS, sustainability is seen as a state of being in balance between Corporate Economic Responsibility (CER) and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

The guiding principle of TCS’ Corporate Social Responsibility programs is “Impact through Empowerment,” where empowerment is a process of strengthening the future today, so that risks are minimized, value created and certainty is experienced. We strive to ensure that the communities engaged through our CSR initiatives also experience certainty in their lives.

The core areas for TCS’ CSR programs are education, health and environment. The choice of education as a theme flows from TCS being in the knowledge domain. Similarly, attention to the cause of health acknowledges that health is a vital precondition for promoting social good. Concern for the environment is in line with our belief that this global cause demands our attention to ensure a sustainable and productive planet. These themes are established centrally for adoption or adaptation across all geographies.

TCS' Approach

TCS has chosen the following channels to drive its CSR initiatives:

  • Developing innovative solutions to address large-scale societal problems by utilizing our IT core competence.
  • Volunteering for projects that address the felt need of communities in which TCS operates, while aligning with the core themes of TCS’ CSR.
  • Participating in community development program championed by our clients.
  • Partnering with select non-government and civil society organizations and other government bodies.
  • Supporting large-scale causes such as disaster relief or any other cause as determined by the Corporate CSR Council.
