“For YASKAWA, CSR goes way beyond the old philanthropy of the past — donating money to good causes at the end of year. Instead, it is a round the year responsibility cum activity. This is the difference we make to the world in which we live, and the contribution we make toward to the society. CSR has gained unprecedented importance and we take our responsibilities thoughtfully and are focused on achieving higher sustainability standards each year as we grow and diversify our business. It is a matter of great satisfaction that YASKAWA India’s focus on creating larger societal value has enabled its businesses to generate sustainable livelihood opportunities and investing part of our profits beyond business, for the larger good of society we live.
