Conservation and integrated sustainable development is an endeavour that requires the support of contributors from diverse sectors to become successful. The Corbett Foundation (TCF) also believes that conservation is a collective responsibility, and our efforts to this end are more effective, mutually beneficial and the impact, long-lasting when we combine our strengths and resources with various corporates, multinational companies, financial institutions, public sector units and International bodies with aligning values and philosophies, and create meaningful partnerships that pertain to a company’s specific area of focus for their Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
The Companies Act 2013 has mandated companies to undertake activities ensuring environmental sustainability, ecological balance, protection of flora and fauna, animal welfare, agro forestry, conservation of natural resources and maintaining quality of soil, air and water, women empowerment, promotion of education, healthcare, sanitation, livelihood enhancement and such as stated in Schedule VII of the Act. This presents companies with an opportunity to carry forward our cause while fundamentally strengthening their business in keeping with their CSR policy.
