As early as 1924, well before the phrase ‘corporate social responsibility’ had been coined, our founder, Dewan Bahadur A.M. Murugappa Chettiar, started the first AMM Hospital. Nearly three decades later, the Group formally institutionalised its CSR responsibility through the establishment of the AMM Charities Trust (renamed AMM Foundation). Over the decades, the Foundation has been extensively engaged in eco-conservation, public health and education initiatives in the communities of its operational presence. The Foundation now manages four schools, a polytechnic college and four hospitals.
It has been the focus of the Foundation to engage in research-led initiatives that can take society forward. With this vision, the Group commissioned the Sri AMM Murugappa Chettiar Research Centre (MCRC) to drive science and technology applications for rural development. The Centre focuses on the responsible use of simple, locally available materials to create commercially viable products and improve rural lives. MCRC works in areas like non-conventional energy, ecotechnology, food and nutritional supplements, plant tissue culture and organic agriculture, among others.
The Murugappa Group’s sustainability philosophy covers its environment commitment as well. As a result, it is not perceived as an optional expense but a necessary investment that enhances competitiveness. Over the years, the Murugappa Group has invested in clean practices and processes, often extending beyond prevailing statutory requirements. For more information, visit www.ammfoundation.org
The Murugappa Group has also been a proud patron of culture and sports. Standing testimony to this are a wide array of unique events sponsored and conducted by the Murugappa Group
The Murugappa group has a collaborative approach for sustainable, responsive and impactful social initiatives, with focus on key areas like Healthcare & Education. The various activities of the Group are undertaken by the AMM Foundation (the nodal CSR agency of the Group), the Shri AMM Murugappa Chettiar Research Centre (MCRC) and through Group companies. It is a matter of pride that CSR is actively driven by employees and carried out in a thorough and professional manner.
