Community Development

Exide factories are located in relatively remote areas where the available social infrastructure for the locals is inadequate. We are viewed by the local community as a major stakeholder in their day-to-day lives.

Communities in the immediate vicinity of our factories form our very important stakeholder group. Thus, we try to discharge our duties as a responsible corporate citizen in a committed manner.

Our factory level CSR activities are therefore geographically restricted to the immediate vicinity of the factory. The activities differ from factory to factory, depending on the local community's requirements.

The 3 main focus areas of our Community Development initiatives are -

  • Health of the community
  • Educational needs of the community
  • Environmental protection of the community

Healthy Community

Healthy Community

In the area of health related activities, Exide organizes Health Camps in local villages from time-to-time. In case of any natural calamity in any nearby area we are always one of the first to reach the local community with help. The medical facilities available in the factories are principally for the factory personnel. However, locals are also given health advice from here. Some factories even run Mobile Health Clinics in the nearby villages.

Education Infrastructure

Education Infrastructure

We often support local village schools in the form of providing educational infrastructure, such as building classrooms or providing basic furniture for school children. These activities are undertaken after a thorough discussion with school authorities and village elders. Once the need of the community is understood, we extend our resources to help them.
