Our core value of Sustainability is aligned to taking “utmost care of society” by creating awareness about the less privileged and encouraging the practice of “Giving Back”.
TransUnion CIBIL’s community investment is focused on the core theme of “Educating the girl child”.
The main objectives of TransUnion CIBIL’s CSR policy is:
Arun Thukral, Advisor, TransUnion CIBIL, Board of Directors says, “If a child receives an education, their life changes. Education is prerequisite for a changed life. I was very keen that if we can even change one girl’s life, we would have been doing our job. That’s were this came from.” Arun champions heavily for the education of India’s marginalized youth, especially girls. Citing India’s historic male – preference and his desire to combat it, Arun firmly believes that the effects of TransUnion CIBIL’s transformative philanthropic efforts will extend further in the years to come and believes that “If the mindset of a woman changes, it will change the world.”
TransUnion CIBIL also encourages its employees to participate in philanthropic and social initiatives.
