Corporate social responsibility

Corporations exist in a symbiotic relationship with their environments (the term environment refers to all the components of the external environment and not to ecological environment alone) where their exchange with the larger environment determines to a large extent how well they do in their profit seeking endeavours.

The Schaeffler Group continues the social responsibility of all group companies and sees this as a prerequisite for lasting corporate success.

Our Code of Conduct is based on the principles of the “Global Compact”, “The Global Sullivan Principles of Corporate Social Responsibility” and the standards of “Social Accountability International”.

The Schaeffler Global Code of Conduct supports the cause as well …

“Environmental responsibility:

We maintain an environmental management system at all production sites world-wide, which we continuously improve. Local environmental protection laws and the specifications of the Schaeffler Group’s environmental protection system must be observed as a minimum. We collaborate with our business partners and suppliers in exercising our environmental responsibility.”

• HOPE is our CSR arm at FAG, Baroda. In 2015 HOPE joined hands with NGO – Mook Dhwani Trust. FAG has dedicated an entire Hostel facility to this trust and partners in maintaining it for the especially abled girls. An entire team of FAG volunteers were sensitized about the health-status and sensitivity of the issue and only then introduced to the project.

• “WEe Wonder Club” is meant for the children of Schaeffler India employees. Various edutainment activities are organized for the children, which help them to learn practically what has been taught in the classes. For instance, Heritage trip, Trip to Gujarat Science City etc.

At INA, Pune, we initiated the “Joy of Giving” drive in 2015. Since then, this initiative has supported more than 4 tribal villages. This was to share good quality utilities/clothes/toys from employees and re-cycle them to the needy ones.

• INA, Pune, has also taken up a Project on re-installation and re-construction of a village school in Chakan, Pune.

• At LUK, Hosur, the employees joined hands in renovating the Vidyanikethan – Margasusi Children Home, with new facilities and infrastructure. This School hosts over 40 girls who come from challenging backgrounds.

• The Schaeffler India, Hi-Po Talent Pool is dedicated to social causes through an initiative branded as “Aarambh”. They have an option to take a personal project of choice or join Organisational CSR Drives.

Recently the Young Leaders 2015 batch collected funds to support rural schools in Chennai – which were victims of floods.

This batch is also very active in supporting our Orphanage at LUK, Hosur and the School children of Lamdapura at Baroda (FAG, Savli)
