Corporate Social Responsibility at Fidelity International
At Fidelity International, we seek to make a positive impact in the communities where we live and work. Given our purpose of ‘Working together to build better financial futures’, we believe that we can't be successful unless we make a positive impact on all of our stakeholders, including the communities in which we operate.
We have a pro-active approach towards Corporate Social Responsibility and are committed to help build a more sustainable and inclusive society by partnering with non-profit organisations and involving our employees through volunteering efforts. In India, our initiatives are focused on supporting five major causes of Environment, Education, Disability, Skill Development, Healthcare, Natural Calamity.
Environment | Building a sustainable environment
As an organisation, we seek innovative ways to limit the impact our operations have on the environment and are conscious of the need to implement good environmental practices for the benefit of our employees, their families, and our communities. We actively participate in initiatives to help improve the environment around us.
Education and Skill Development | Nurturing the upcoming generation and supporting livelihoods
Education is one of the focus areas for Fidelity International in India and we partner with several organisations that work on providing education to children. As children need to be receptive to the lessons, the state of mind and health of the students are equally important factors that determine their ability to absorb the lessons imparted. So, the education projects include provision of food and healthcare in addition to books, uniforms, teachers’ salaries, teaching aids, as well as provision of infrastructure for the schools. Fidelity also invests in the skilling of adult learners, which has an immediate and measurable effect on employability and can transform lives. Through various CSR Projects, in association with NGOs, Fidelity provides training to youth who lack the opportunity and resources for getting skilled per industry requirements.
Healthcare & Disability
Under Healthcare and Disability theme, Fidelity is associated with partner NGOs to provide mid-day meals to 440 students, Healthcare facilities to 1000+ less privileged students and Prosthesis bras to 600 breast cancer survivors.
Natural Calamities/Covid support initiatives
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the perception of business-as-usual. Today, the value of being a good corporate citizen goes past the pride and gratification of providing simple philanthropic support for well-intentioned goals. Strong and consistent CSR policies have become a cornerstone of the character of many brands. With our COVID19 vaccination program, more the 10,000 less privileged beneficiaries from the urban slums of Gurugram have been vaccinated free of cost apart from various other Dry ration and COVID19 safety kits distribution initiatives in Gurugram and Noida in association with our Partner NGOs.
