India needs sustainable solutions that are innovative and have the potential of delivering a steep change in results.
Against this background, Piramal Enterprises Limited set up the Piramal Foundation in August 2011 to ensure that all its CSR / philanthropic activities are undertaken through a dedicated organisation.
The Piramal Foundation’s approach to creating an impact is to not only to innovate solutions that are replicable, but also to provide risk capital to promising ideas and incubate them to achieve scalable results.
Piramal Foundation believes that bringing impact at scale across diverse geographies and communities can be achieved through partnerships with governments and like-minded organisations.
