Suzlon Foundation (SF) works on the framework of five capitals –
Financial, Natural, Social, Human and Physical. SF believes that these resources, which we call capitals, affect the business and are in turn affected by it. Hence, for overall sustainability, balanced growth of these five capitals is essential. This is the sustainability framework of CSR.
All programs of SF are designed to enhance these capitals. Thus, livelihood programs enhance financial capital, natural resource management programs enhance natural capital, social institution building and empowerment programs enhance social capital, education and health initiatives enhance human capital and basic infrastructure improvement or civic amenities programs enhance physical capital.
The programs not only contribute to sustainability but also to Millennium Development Goals declared by United Nations.
