Reliance Industries (RIL) has been awarded the Golden Peacock Award 2017 for corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives. The award was a recognition, in particular, of the work done by its CSR arm Reliance Foundation under Founder and Chairman Nita Ambani.
One of RIL’s key social projects, recognised by the Golden Peacock jury, aims at impacting the livelihood of farmers through water and food security interventions.
RIL was recognised by the awards jury under the Chairmanship of Justice (Dr) Arijit Pasayat, former judge of the Supreme Court.
Under its rural transformation initiative, Reliance has been implementing a programme called “Bharat-India Jodo (BIJ)” that works closely with marginal and small farmers for improving their lives and making agriculture a first choice profession.
Golden Peacock Award for Corporate Social Responsibility gives attention to social and environmental concerns in addition to economic goals, and encourage companies to balance financial profits, economic value addition and social good.
