At JK White Cement, we have continuously striven towards bringing about a positive change in the communities we operate in. For us, corporate social responsibility is at the heart of our overall business vision. Since our pioneering foray in white cement over 25 years ago, with the setting up of the White Cement plant, Gotan, from a barren land has transformed rapidly into a developing and prosperous community. Today, it is a shining example of sustainable development.

In line with our ethos of giving back to the society, we have taken concrete steps towards imparting quality education, developing infrastructure, spearheading various healthcare initiatives and working towards community welfare and holistic development of the areas in and around our plants.

Corporate Social Responsibility


Education


At JK White Cement, we have always invested in education, firmly believing, that quality education and knowledge dissemination are critical pillars for nation building. In line with this, L.K. Singhania Education Centre (CBSE-affiliated co-educational school) was set up by the Company at Gotan in 1984, with two rooms, 17 students and one teacher. Today, the school is a centre of excellence in quality education with over 1600 students. LKSEC is accredited with ISO-9001, ISO-14001 and ISO 22000 certifications from LRQA, UK, is a member of Indian Public Schools’ Conference (IPSC) and also a participating institution to UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network in education for international peace and cooperation.

Community Welfare


JK White Cement participates in the holistic development of the communities in which it operates by establishing significant infrastructural projects for the development of areas around the plants. From constructing a railway station and sewage treatment plant to refurnishing Govt. Schools, JK White Cement’s interventions have helped elevate the quality of life of the local communities.

Healthcare


In view of the lack of modern medical facilities in remote areas, JK White Cement has undertaken dynamic measures to bring healthcare within the reach of the people of the communities living in and around the plants. The Company engages with the local people through various healthcare initiatives such as blood donation camps, eye check-ups, medical health check-up camps and awareness sessions.

Environment Preservation


At JK White Cement, we firmly believe that sustainability of the ecosystem, biodiversity and a healthy environment are vital conditions for any business to operate. The Company actively participates in and organizes tree plantation campaigns to create awareness about environment conservation. Conservation, harvesting and management of water resources in the water starved state of Rajasthan has also been a priority for us. We have contributed to water management under the state government scheme ‘Mukhyamantri Jal Sawalamban Abhiyan (MJSA)’ and have also developed the Dhanapa Talaab for water harvesting as a part of a water conservation project in Dhanapa.
