Sustainability at Wipro is all about good citizenship
A corporation’s progress is a function of three key vectors that shape what we call ‘Good Citizenship’ – i.e. the corporation itself, the society in which it operates and the environment that envelops all of these. These are also the vectors that form the crux of our corporate citizenship philosophy and the base of all our sustainability initiatives. Employee engagement is an integral part of all that we do and we encourage employees to volunteer, acting thus as catalysts in bringing about positive change.

Our initiatives in sustainable education are multi-stakeholder focused and long-term. The initiatives address diverse stakeholders ranging from colleges from which Wipro recruits a large pool of its human resources to the larger society. It includes local educational institutions, engineering colleges, universities, educational and other civil society organizations, schools, teachers, students and parents. Over time, these have achieved significant scale in terms of 1000s of schools and colleges and more than a million students impacted directly or indirectly.
