Dalmia Bharat Group Foundation, popularly known as DBGF, is a registered not-for profit organization set up under the Income Tax Act, 1961. It is committed to carry forward the seven-decade long legacy of Dalmia Bharat Group through conscientious corporate citizenship.The Foundation started its journey in the year 2009, as the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm of the company. The focus on our various programs was driven along the lines with UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). We delivered and reached our goals under various outreach programs, with significant contributions, making each program people inclusive and holistic, in all respects for a better tomorrow.
As we get closer to achieving the goals related to MDGs set earlier, we have started to calibrate the focus on issues which are more material, both to the communities and to us. One such issue is Water. Therefore, we are working both on water harvesting and on water usage with the neighbouring communities.The other critical issue that is relevant to us and that’s critically needed in our programme villages is energy conservation. Therefore, we are concentrating on this issue as well and as a spin-off, are offsetting communities’ carbon foot-prints. We are also focusing on skill development and growing that extensively as the 3rd vertical of our program, as we continue to work on MDGs till we achieve the goals in a year or so.
