5)
Everything we do within Tata can be re-examined through
a sustainability lens.
Sustainable initiatives strive to add value to Tata's
enterprise and shareholders over a reasonable time frame.
Social philanthropy and development initiatives are a core
competency and should be treated as an essential output
of the organization.
Sustainable creativity and knowledge should be shared
across all Tata organizations and outside of our company.
Tata's sustainability development should be managed with
the same rigor, focus, and precision as other Tata business.
6)
All sustainable initiatives should be transparent,
measurable, and auditable to all stakeholders.
7) Our businesses should inspire new sustainable ideas, and
our sustainability efforts should inspire new business ideas.
8) Sustainable thinking and implementation is a key skill that
every future Tata manager should possess.
9) Tata's companies will encourage their business partners
and stakeholders to achieve sustainable business practices.
10) Our initiatives should lead environmental, economic, and
