We will leverage our people, expertise and networks to address the needs of the communities that we serve and thereby catalyse overall development. Being a global pharma company, we strongly believe that business and responsibility go hand-in-hand. Lasting value can only be created, if the right balance between the triple bottom lines of economic, environmental and social is achieved.
Serving The Community
We believe in inclusive growth, working towards the upliftment of our served communities. Addressing their present needs and building for the future remains the core objective for our CSR efforts.
Through our CSR activities, we introduce interventions that address critical needs and are sustainable over a period of time.
We utilise our company’s internal resources, including research, marketing, financial, human resources, and products, to maximise the impact and increase the reach of our CSR efforts.
Our Focus Areas
Our Malaria Elimination Demonstration Project (MEDP) is a first-of-its-kind Public-Private partnership between the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), Government of Madhya Pradesh (GoMP), and the Foundation for Disease Elimination and Control of India (FDEC India). FDEC India was established by Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. as a not-for-profit entity. The MEDP aims to eliminate Malaria from 1,233 villages of the Mandla district.
Model School Development
We develop model schools in and around our served communities, enabling and empowering rural school students to access and enjoy equal educational and development opportunities. Apart from building robust infrastructure, we help to implement technology-based learning programmes in schools. We also organise and support various co-curricular activities and related programmes, as operated through schools and educational institutions, located near our areas of operations.
Sun Pharma Science Foundation
The Sun Pharma Science Foundation is an independent non-profit organisation, registered under the Societies Act. Dedicated to promoting scientific endeavours in India, the Foundation encourages and rewards excellence in the medical and pharmaceutical sciences while channelling national and international knowledge and expertise in all subjects connected with the treatment of diseases that afflict humanity at large.
Mobile Healthcare Units
Our Mobile Healthcare Units (MHUs) deliver primary healthcare services to over 650,000 people located around areas close to our manufacturing plants and other establishments. These MHUs serve a mix of rural and underserved populations, visiting villages to provide treatment for common ailments, conduct pathological tests, enable referrals, and provide free medicines. This project is implemented in India through Sun Pharma Community Healthcare Society in the states of Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Sikkim.
Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation
We support and encourage provision of safe drinking water, adequate sanitation, and easily accessible hygiene services. Towards this end, we provide access to clean drinking water in villages, construct good quality individual toilets and implement effective behaviour change programmes.
Environment, Health and Safety
At Sun Pharma, we remain fully committed to achieving excellence through our Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) programmes. Conducting our activities in a responsible, proactive manner is a core focus of our operations and culture.
As a part of this commitment, our EHS Policy provides for the creation of a safe and healthy workplace and a clean environment for all employees and our served communities. Aiming for, and adhering to, the highest international standards in plant design, equipment selection, maintenance, and operations, our EHS policy is a core commitment of our operations.
We have established an ISO14001:2015 compliant Environmental Management System and ISO 45001:2018 compliant Occupational Health and Safety Management System at our key manufacturing facilities.
