Impacting lives through inclusive growth.
Aragen is committed to socially responsible and environmentally sustainable growth. We demonstrate our commitment to the communities that surround us through CSR initiatives that focus on education, the environment, and healthcare.
Education: We have chosen to reach out to children who are underprivileged and differently-abled by supporting poorly equipped and funded Zilla Parishad schools. Aragen has adopted multiple ZP schools in underserved districts of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, including Uppal, Ghatkesar, Gundrapochpally and Kothur. Every year, more than 1,000 children benefit from our intervention.
Environment: We recognize the urgency to positively impact the environment. As a responsible company, we are constantly working towards conservation, ecological balance, better use of natural resources and pollution control. Aragen operates zero-liquid discharge water treatment plants to reduce the company’s carbon footprint and increase operational sustainability. We contribute to the Government of Telangana – Haritha Haram tree planting program, and have developed parks and green belts in Begumpet, Hyderabad and Bommasandra, Bengaluru. Ongoing campus initiatives include awareness programs on reduction of single-use plastic, food wastage in the cafeteria, and water conservation.
Healthcare: Delivering better health solutions to our customers and underserved communities is our business objective and responsibility. Aragen organizes regular pro-bono health camps in rural areas, our employees respond in large numbers to blood donation programs organized in collaboration with Red Cross Society, and our sponsored marathons, aimed at promoting a fitness lifestyle, are always well attended. Between 2017 and 2019, we constructed 125 household toilets in Kothur village, Nellore district, and biodegradable toilets in Nacharam and Mallapur. Aragen supports the Government of Telangana health department with health tracking technology and makes philanthropic contributions to various non-profits championing health.
Support to Government during COVID-19: Aragen has donated PPE kits worth INR 50 million to government hospitals in Telangana. In the early months of the pandemic, when India experienced an exodus of migrant labour from cities to their hometowns, we helped ease hardship by distributing free provisions and meals in Hyderabad and Bengaluru. During this period, employees of Aragen donated one day/half day salary towards the Prime Minister’s Care Fund.
