Dear Stakeholders, As one of India’s most trusted real estate and infrastructure developers, our consumer-centric approach encompassing our products and services as well as sectoral advancements in sustainable development guide our Company’s operations and performance.  Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

The success of any business enterprise depends on effective engagement with stakeholders and systems that support the value chain, and on how well these interact to generate collective value.  This 'integrated thinking' is core to our business operations.    Our focus is on creating long-term value for all our stakeholders and India's real estate industry at large.  With a built portfolio of over 27 million sq.ft., our projects optimise consumption of natural resources across their lifecycle.

Our Sustainability journey entails multiple industry firsts. We were the first real estate company in India to publish a Sustainability report in 2011.  In 2013, we decided to commit to a 100% green building portfolio (the only real estate company in India at the time to do so).  In 2014, we established the 'GREEN ARMY' with a mission to create 1 million environmentally conscious citizens in India, by engaging with young citizens as harbingers of positive change.  In 2016, we partnered with TERI to establish the 'Mahindra TERI Centre of Excellence', a first-of-its-kind open-source research initiative to mainstream green buildings in India.  Our Integrated cities and Industrial clusters (IC & IC) are 100% certified green, designed and operated on environment-friendly principles. We have successfully embraced several industry-leading sustainability initiatives such as Climate Positive Development stage 2 certification under aegis of C40 for MWC Jaipur, India’s first certified Zero Waste to Landfill MWC Chennai.

As we grow our business presence in our priority markets and segments, we will continue to strive towards creating sustained value for all our stakeholders.
