At INOXCVA, we apply the same precision, scientific temperament, and professional rigour to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as we do to our cryogenic solutions. For us, CSR is not merely an act of giving back, but a profound commitment to create a constructive and transformative socio-economic impact at the grassroots level.
Over the years, we have undertaken a range of initiatives focusing on Skill Development and Healthcare; each designed to have a meaningful and positive impact on the communities we serve.
In a male-dominated welding industry, INOXCVA's flagship CSR initiative, SPARK, shatters gender barriers. As part of this initiative, we select, train and mentor young women from economically and socially backward regions to become skilled welders. This not only helps them support their family financially but also gives wings to their aspirations.
The women are given complete financial support by INOXCVA to undergo training at the Vivekanand Institute of Vocational & Entrepreneurial Competence (VIVEC), a residential, vocational & skill development centre by Shroff Foundation Trust near Vadodara. During their 6-month stay at VIVEC, they also participate in personality development workshops and team-building exercises. Post training, they join INOXCVA as Trainee Welders where they undergo further mentoring to assume pivotal roles in complex manufacturing processes.
The Cryogenic industry has a significant demand for welding professionals, and the entry of women marks a transformative step towards inclusivity and empowerment.
We have developed an on-campus Skill Development and Welding Excellence Centre at the ITM SLS Baroda University (ITMBU) in Jarod, Vadodara. At this Centre, we not only impart specialised welding training through six-month-long programmes free of cost, but also provide a monthly stipend to economically disadvantaged students.
We have adopted the Industrial Training Institute at Lunawada under a PPP model and have transformed it into a Centre of Excellence. At this ITI, we have designed and implemented a sophisticated and contemporary curriculum for training future generations of welders.
INOXCVA has contributed to the procurement and installation of an air conditioning system at the Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai to ensure a clean, comfortable and infection-free environment for children battling cancer.
We have extended mobile health services to seven villages near our Kalol Plant to bring medical care directly to the doorsteps of socio-economically disadvantaged and elderly individuals.
