Unisys India – Social Responsibility

Unisys is committed to operating our business in an ethical, socially responsible, and sustainable manner. We believe that corporate citizenship is good business. We are aware that our growth and success is inextricably linked to the well-being of our ecosystem – employees, customers, partners, local communities, and the environment. We are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace, operating our facilities in an environmentally-sound manner, providing and supporting environmentally-responsible products and services, and promoting programs that address key social, economic, and environmental challenges.

By complying with applicable governmental requirements, we not only enhance our reputation, but also create greater value for both our business and the society at large.

In India, as per the government's mandate, organizations are required to contribute some of their resources toward various Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities. These activities include promoting education, preventative healthcare, gender equality, environmental sustainability, rural development projects, and contributing to the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund, among others.

As part of these efforts, Unisys India constituted a CSR Committee in March 2014, comprising the following directors:

  • ​​Srikanth Raghavan, Senior Director & Member of CSR Committee
  • Viswanathan Sivasankaran, Director-Finance & Member of CSR Committee

The CSR committee reviewed the programs as specified under Schedule VII of the Companies Act, 2013. During FY 2016-17 the current CSR policy was amended to include contribution of part of eligible CSR fund towards Rural Development programs (RDPs) through AKRUTI program presently functional under MKCLKF-Sec 8 Company apart from making contribution to PMNRF.

In line with our global corporate values, Unisys India contributed INR 15,056,157 (Rupees One Crore fifty lakhs fifty six thousand one hundred and fifty seven only) towards the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund (PMNRF) and INR 147,067 (Rupees One lakh forty seven thousand and sixty seven only) towards travelling and initial consulting charges incurred w.r.t. rural development program i.e. AKRUTI program presently functional under MKCLKF (Sec 8 Company) for FY 2016-17.

The resources of the PMNRF are utilized primarily to provide immediate relief to families of the deceased victims of natural calamities and to the victims of major accidents and riots. Assistance from PMNRF is also rendered to partially defray the expenses for medical treatment like heart surgeries, kidney transplantation, and cancer treatment.

Through these ongoing efforts and our technology leadership, we aim to make a sustainable difference to the communities in which we work and operate.
