Committed to Make a Difference
At Deepak nitrite limited, we are advancing our policies on corporate activities in social, environmental and ethical aspects. We understand our social responsibility to develop assets that co-exist in harmony with the environment and with the communities. We are contributing to the local society, working with communities and producing ways of living for the future.
While we are committed to make a difference in the lives of people around the world, we are also committed to being responsive towards our key stakeholders – the communities. We aim to especially support those from the socially and economically backward groups – the underprivileged and marginalised sections. We have identified the CSR priorities where we are confident of making the greatest impact. We continue to carry out activities based on our chosen pillars for Corporate Social Responsibility.
