Community Engagement

Community Engagement

Social infrastructure is indispensable for progress; L&T, as India’s leading builder of major infrastructure projects, is equally committed to developing projects that will contribute to the quality of life. This includes schools, hospitals, skill training institutes, water supply & distribution and sanitation facilities.

Building India’s Social Infrastructure – Our Goals & Activities

Focusing on the many challenges around project implementation, we propose to work towards the following outcomes from our Social Infrastructure programmes, based on need assessment and feasibility.

Water & sanitation (availability of safe drinking water and proper sanitation facilities) and electrification of villages (off-grid renewables)

Education - Improved access to education (increased enrollment in pre-school, children attending neighborhood schools) and improving quality of learning (better school infrastructure, better teaching-learning process)

Health - Improved access to quality health care (expanding infrastructure of health centres, increased number of people accessing quality health care)

Skill building - Enhancing employability of youth (enhancing training capacity, improved infrastructure of skill development centres)

We also work to build a collaborative eco-system comprising L&T, the community, our employees, their families, NGOs, government agencies, chambers of commerce and academic institutes to fulfill a larger social commitment.

L&T's health initiatives are undertaken at all the premises of the Company across India. These services are run by L&T through its Community Health Centres, CSR Departments and in partnership with Government initiatives.
