Giving back to the community with genuine CSR initiatives
At ESPL, we believe CSR is more than a mandate. Going beyond every facility we manage, we have adopted a host of practices that help us support the communities around us as well as the planet.
In an effort to contribute towards environmental sustainability, we hold environment awareness workshops and events on World Environment Day. ESPL also promotes Urban Green, an initiative where park users adopt plots to grow and take home their own produce of fresh organic vegetables.
We work closely with local panchayats and government bodies to build sustainable infrastructure in Rural areas. Among a few is the Waste Collection center which benefits over 18 villages in North Bengaluru. We also initiated the 'Ecogram Shakti Program' which empowers over 50 women to promote environmental sustainability at these villages.
Underpinning our focus on education, we provide opportunities to our CSR-sponsored govt. school students. Upon completion of a one-month training program, they can get a well-paying job in the facility management sector.
With the pandemic disrupting the education sector, we funded a state-of-the-art recording studio in collaboration with DSERT which will be used to curate digital content that would benefit over 40 Lakh students across Karnataka.
