TCS has always recognized the responsibility Corporates should have towards the wider communities they operate in. Be it girl child education in South Asia in collaboration with UNICEF or adult literacy programs in South India, TCS believes in using IT as an instrument for social development and change. Other TCS' community initiatives have been in areas addressing environmental and civic problems; setting up and maintaining infrastructure for urban beautification, pollution reduction and healthcare; waste management in the office environment, tree plantation and water treatment.
Environment policy :
TCS' commitment to environment stems from the TATA Group's abiding concern for environment and society. TCS is in the Information Technology (IT) consulting business, which by its nature of operation has low impact on the environment. TCS will strive to provide a healthy work environment to all its employees, and conduct environment friendly business at all its offices. To achieve these goals, TCS has published this Environment Policy. In line with its continuous improvement process initiative, TCS will continuously enhance its environment policy, which encompasses air, water, natural resources, people and their interrelation.
TCS' environment policy aims at improving environment management by setting higher standards, and optimising the use of power, water, consumables, and other natural resources. It also aims at reducing pollution by minimising the waste generation from business operations. The policy focuses on environment conservation as an essential element of TCS' business philosophy and infrastructure. The main objectives of the policy are:
·Respect health, safety, and environment issues of employees, clients, vendors and local community.
·Optimise energy and power consumption, and the use of consumables and hardware through recycling or reuse.
·Increase environment awareness in employees, and motivate them to participate in and promote organization endeavours to protect the environment.
·Integrate environment conservation, health and safety measures in the design of new facilities.
·Comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations concerning environment, safety and health.
·Drive common solutions, consistency and continual improvement, for more efficient and effective Health, Safety and Environment measures.
·Monitor policy implementation, and report performance to stake holders periodically.
All TCS employees are expected to support the Environment Policy. The policy will be implemented at all TCS offices, within a three dimensional framework comprising Employees, Management, and Work-place, as mentioned below:
All TCS employees should be concerned about the environment. TCS will make all its employees aware on how work practices affect the environment. For example, wasteful use of electricity or paper at work place depletes natural resources and adds to pollution caused by the generating/manufacturing units. Similarly safe work practices protect the environment by mitigating health risks and accidents. As members of the TATA family, and responsible citizens of the country, TCS employees should observe environment- friendly behaviour, both in and outside the work place.
TCS management will define health, safety and environment goals and objectives, identify roles and responsibilities for policy implementation, measure performance, and allocate necessary resources. It will integrate resource planning with health, safety and environment concerns. Two-way communication will be established with employees, clients and vendors to promote and share health, safety and environment initiatives. The Management will also initiate ISO 14001 certification for different locations in a phased manner.
TCS managers will review the work environment and suggest improvements in line with this policy. The policy will also initiate energy conservation, waste recycling, and paper reduction, in priority areas. The measures and initiatives emerging as a result of this policy will be documented as processes. These processes will also ensure compliance with applicable health, safety, and environment regulations in all offices of TCS. A continual improvement plan will be initiated to achieve excellence in environment management.
