Corporate Social Responsibility Our CSR Initiatives
To build a powerful nation the technological advancements and infrastructure growth must be in sync with the growth rate of the economy. Infrastructure development can lead to a vast progression in the nation’s socio economic growth, particularly in the developing nations. REC, in extension of its role in development of power infrastructure, has taken up several initiatives for infrastructural developments in other aspects too, especially in underdeveloped areas including tribal villages with special emphasis on the areas in and around the projects financed by REC. We feel obligated to participate and contribute in infrastructure development activities beyond our business activities, for improving the quality of life for people across the country.
