Shaping Young MindsThrough our school outreach programmes

In line with our Founder JN Tata’s philosophy of business enterprises being the drivers of social upliftment, all Tata Steel Group companies embody social responsibility in their vision. Tata Steel’s community-centric initiatives emphasise the spread of quality education in all locations where it operates globally. The Company believes in empowering communities through education and skill development of youth.

Tata Steel proactively supports learning and education with programmes that have benefited thousands of youngsters across the world. It supports and encourages the next generation’s interest in science and technology, and many Tata Steel employees volunteer to help schools with their science, technology and engineering learning programmes.

  • Tata Steel facilitates skill development training for unemployed youth in diverse fields such as construction, automobiles, motor driving, voice services, hospitality, apparel designing, and nursing through focussed interventions.

Making Sports A Way Of Lifeby grooming tomorrow's stars

Since its inception, Tata Steel has been a nursery for sports. When he was envisaging Asia’s first integrated steel plant, the Tata Group founder Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata also planned the model township of Jamshedpur. When Jamshedpur was planned (around 1900), he wrote to his sons to ensure that the city had wide streets, lots of trees, and grounds for cricket, hockey and football. He had the vision to realise that sports is an integral part of any city plan.

JRD Tata gave fruition to the Founder’s vision, inculcating sports as an integral part of Tata Steel’s corporate philosophy. The Company’s commitment towards the promotion of sports is manifested through separate departments for football, archery, athletics and more. Over time, an impressive array of infrastructure, matching international standards to support sports has been built.

  • Apart from realising his father’s dream for Jamshedpur, Sir Dorabji Tata also promoted sports through his philanthropic activities. In 1919, he facilitated four athletes and two wrestlers to participate in the Antwerp Games. As president of the Indian Olympic Council, he financed the Indian contingent to the 1924 Paris Olympiad.
  • Under JRD Tata’s stewardship Tata Steel introduced world class football to India through the Super Soccer series. Some of the top clubs of Europe and South America played against India’s best.
  • The legendary Tata Football Academy (TFA), started in 1987, is an assembly line that supplies talent for almost 80 per cent of India's junior teams.
  • Tata Steel successfully bid for the Jamshedpur franchise in the coveted Indian Super League (ISL) 2017. Winning the bid, Jamshedpur is the host city for the Jamshedpur Football Club.
  • The Tata Athletic Academy (TAA), started in May 2004, promotes middle-distance runners who are given exposure to infrastructure of the highest international standard: a synthetic track, state-of-the-art gymnasium and international coaches.
  • The Tata Archery Academy aims to help tribal people in Jharkhand maximise a skill they already possessed and thereby find their place in the national mainstream. It has helped people from this region become international stars.
  • The Naval Tata Hockey Academy, inaugurated in mid-2017, seeks to provide the necessary institutional structure to nurture Indian talent for hockey leagues and international tournaments, as well as bring back the erstwhile glory of Indian field hockey through professionalising grassroot-level hockey and bringing the global best to train domestic coaches.
  • Founded by legendary mountaineer Ms Bachendri Pal, the first Indian woman to climb Mt Everest, the Tata Steel Adventure Foundation is an outbound leadership institute which aims at developing able leaders for the future.
  • Tata Steel also supports other sports at its JRD Tata Sports Complex in Jamshedpur. This world-class facility has a football ground and an eight-lane polyurethane track.

The Tata commitment to sports is not dependent on incentives; it's done because it's dear to the heart of the Group and its leaders. Rather than looking at what's in it for the Group, the Tatas have focused on what will take Indian sport ahead, and at helping individuals realise their sporting ambitions.


Securing The Futureby creating value responsibly

Steel is the only material with a truly closed recycling loop. Steel is not consumed. It is used again and again without any loss of quality or strength. As one of the world’s leading steel producers, Tata Steel is dedicated to managing operations responsibly and to continuous improvement. This is at the very heart of the Company and stems from Tata Steel Founder JN Tata’s belief that the community is not just another stakeholder in business, but the very purpose of our organisation’s existence.

Above all, Tata Steel strives to operate in a way that is safe and respectful to the environment. The Company understands that it must meet the expectations of all stakeholders and make a positive contribution to the sustainable development of the global community. It believes that it can and must play an important part in addressing sustainability challenges, both through its products and services and in its operations.

  • Tata Steel is the first company in India to publish an Integrated Report in accordance with the IIRC framework. The Integrated Report combines the financial aspects of the Company with the non-financial aspects, propagating a balanced approach.
  • Tata Steel is one of three Tata Group companies — the others being Tata Consultancy Services and Tata Motors — that feature among the top global companies  listed in the Global Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) 2016.

  • For nearly 100 years, Tata Steel has pioneered CO2-low steel making. During the last 30 years the Company has reduced its CO2 emissions per tonne by about 20% and is now reaching the limits of what is possible through conventional blast furnaces.
  • Investing in the future, Tata Steel is working on technology to deliver on its ambition for a low carbon and circular economy with HIsarna - a completely new technology for producing steel. HIsarna is expected to play a pivotal role to meet the future recycling ambitions of a circular economy.
  • Tata Steel has taken several proactive steps towards biodiversity through afforestation and developing local ecosystems to enhance the biodiversity of areas in which it operates.
  • Tata Steel takes a complete Life Cycle Approach to its business and concerns itself not just with sustainability across its supply chain, but also about how end products are being disposed of.

The Company has set up institutions like the Tribal Cultural Society and annual programme such as Samvaad that seek to empower the community through educational and employment opportunities.

Apart from being recognised worldwide for its efforts in promoting sustainable business practices, Tata Steel’s mission to be a ‘Global Benchmark in Value Creation and Corporate Citizenship’ drives the Company to excel in all areas of sustainability. The responsibility of combining the three elements of society - social, environmental and economic – is of utmost importance to the way of life at Tata Steel as a global conglomerate. It is the combination of these three elements that ensures that its business is sustainable for all stakeholders.


Recasting Skylinesby rainsing the bar for development

Steel consumption is intrinsically linked to the economic prospects of a country or region. Apart from helping build some of the most impressive buildings and providing material and expert guidance on infrastructure projects across the world, Tata Steel has the products and services to meet the exacting needs and standards of the global construction sector. 

With steel being a key ingredient in industries such as construction and infrastructure, Tata Steel has been at the cutting edge of innovation to ensure that the range of products and systems on offer are customisable and meet the customers’ needs. The products and systems under the construction segment can be categorised according to their primary function – the structural frame (sections, tubes), infrastructure, building solutions (roof and wall products) and internal fit out applications (HVAC).

  • Some of the iconic structures that Tata Steel has helped realise include Mumbai’s Bandra-Worli Sealink, London’s The Shard, Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 3, the Delhi Metro, the Dubai Ski Dome, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Macau’s Cross Ring Expressway and the Shenzhen Bay Great Bridge.
  • Tata Steel has also been at the forefront for innovative ideas on affordable housing units made of steel that have now become winning formulas for homes, disaster rehabilitation, toilets, portable cabins, and much more.

Customer-centricity remains core to Tata Steel’s business philosophy. For this reason, Tata Steel works closely with customers to deliver solutions aimed at improving cost-effectiveness and speed of construction, increasing the functionality and performance of buildings and infrastructure, as well as reducing the consumption of resources, including energy, both in the original construction process and in ongoing usage. 


Celebrating Diversityby promoting meritocracy

Since its inception, Tata Steel has been a showcase for ethical behaviour and worker welfare schemes. This has been part of the Company’s legacy, as envisioned by our Founder, Jamsetji Tata, who believed that a business must operate in a manner such that it respects the rights of all its stakeholders, both external and internal. The Company has chosen the path of diversity and inclusion in order to reach a destination that makes it the best manufacturing company for a diverse mix of people.

  • Tata Steel firmly believes that people are its greatest asset and therefore adopts best practices to ensure healthy employee relations, employee growth and development as well as work satisfaction. 
  • Tata Steel thrives in a culture of respect, inclusion and diversity. The Company has made a conscious effort to build an equitable environment and a diverse team. Across the globe, Tata Steel’s teams actively work against stereotypical biases to encourage a culture of meritocracy.
  • The Company also runs a campaign to promote meritocracy, gender diversity, employee-friendly infrastructure for differently-abled employees and increased participation of women in senior leadership. Recognising the positive impact of gender diversity and meritocracy, Tata Steel launched a comprehensive programme called Mosaic in June 2015.

The Company has implemented several policies to help employees achieve a healthy work-life balance as well as improve engagement. These policies include a five-day working week including manufacturing and mining locations, extended maternity leave, paternity leave, satellite office operation, a revised sabbatical leave policy and work-from-home options.


Championing Innovationthrough our customer-centric solutions

Innovation — in thoughts, processes, approaches and strategies — has become a critical factor for Tata companies in a world without boundaries. The objective is to develop new and relevant products and services. For Tata Steel, the way to do this is to innovate. The Company constantly explores new ways of working with others and identify the best ideas and technologies, wherever they may be.

Tata Steel’s approach to innovation is driven by understanding its customers’ needs and developing customer insight into the right solution. By working closely with its customers, Tata Steel is able to turn its in-depth knowledge of customer requirements into optimised steel products and services that improve efficiency and give customers an advantage to help them succeed in their markets.

  • Tata Steel has doubled its investment in Research and Development (R&D) in the last 3 years. The world’s top steel companies invest around 1% of turnover in R&D.  At present, Tata Steel’s investment in R&D is at 0.34% of its turnover but this will soon go up to 1%.
  • With graphene, Tata Steel is on the way to becoming an alternative materials company. Graphene is a new age material which has higher strength than steel and better electrical properties than copper.

It offers consultation to auto manufacturers. Tata Steel’s PARC in the Netherlands caters to the requirements of all top auto manufacturers in Europe.
  • Digital devices are being used to monitor safety of workers. Employees working at the plants are being equipped with wearable devices that immediately alert the control room in case of any health issues. This is a first in the steel industry and is also going to be used by Tata Steel in mines.

Tata Steel’s collaborative, open approach gives customers access to its own world-class research and development, and testing capabilities. It also lets customers benefit from Tata Steel’s leading product enhancing technology and allows them to tap into the Company’s partnerships with the most advanced universities and research institutes worldwide.
