At IDFC, we are focused on making our business practices more socially and environmentally responsible. We respect the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and seek to be guided by its provisions in the conduct of our business. We ensure that our business is conducted with honesty and integrity, maintaining rigorous ethical, professional and legal standards.
We are committed to providing a competitive and fair employment environment and the highest standards of health and safety to all our employees. We strive to be a good corporate citizen and work through our Not for Profit Businesses to achieve these objectives.
Our not for profit businesses consist of three distinct verticals; the Capacity Building Trust, Policy Advisory Group and the Corporate Social Responsibility Group, which also manages the Inclusive Infrastructure Fund.
Capacity Building Trust »
This Trust works with government agencies at the Central & State levels to strengthen their capacity to conceptualize tenders and manage Public Private Partnership projects. Their assignments include two joint ventures with the Governments of Karnataka & Uttaranchal.
Policy Advisory Group »
The Policy Advisory Group provides thought leadership in rationalizing government policy and regulatory frameworks. This includes research, identifying best practices, promoting dialogue on issues relating to infrastructure development in India and related environment and social impacts.

Instead of focused on philanthropy, we have chosen to throw the spotlight on integrating sustainability into business. Internally, even though the Company’s operations do not have a significant environmental impact, we will strive to minimize it and reduce the carbon footprint of our operations through resource efficiency and conservation.
The Group is continuously incorporating and integrating sustainability into all our interactions with stakeholders, both internally and externally, evolving and responding to changes and working toward a long term goal. This is achieved through the following:
The Corporate Social Responsibility Group will also focus on increasing the environmental and social sensitivities of all our employees, maintaining our reputation for ethical and fair business practices and improving transparency in our interactions with our stakeholders. Through our Inclusive Infrastructure Fund, we will contribute to society by leveraging our core infrastructure expertise in three distinct ways:
