Our CSR programme is driven by a committee that ensures this is robust, sustainable, and complies with CGI’s CSR Policy and Companies Act 2013, an India government policy that mandates qualifying companies to spend a percentage of their profit towards CSR.
Our CSR initiatives are designed to engage our professionals in socially responsible projects and help them live their goals as good corporate citizens in the communities where we live and work.

- Create meaningful partnerships with clients
We build strategic partnerships with clients by leading CSR projects and collaborating with them to increase impact, scale and sustainability of all initiatives.
- Strengthen sustainability initiatives
We assess, mitigate and address environmental and sustainability risks and contribute to relief and rehabilitation programs in times of need.
