Our Approach

JSPL Foundation believes in building social capital in the community by facilitating social investments based on the partnership and community ownership mode. The Foundation has been consciously operating in a framework of Triple Bottom Line (TBL) (i.e. people, planet, profit) and therefore has developed an operating system which is compatible to the environmental as well as to the community needs.

JSPL Foundation executes the projects adopting a 360° approach to ensure that core principles in sustainability, social & ecological resilience are integrated across all stakeholders.

Through this approach, we ensure successful implementation and adoption of community projects. The Foundation has been steering the community participation and ownership of social development projects by way of capacity building and effective collaboration. These interventions ensure that core principles in sustainability and social & ecological resilience are integrated across all stakeholders, hence aligned to UN SDGs.

The Foundation has been contributing to the society through all our sustainable CSR interventions, which are also aligned with 17 Sustainable Development Goals launched by the United Nations.
360 Approach
The Foundation's approach is anchored on sustainability, partnerships with the community and stakeholding. This enables the communities to generate their development needs, work out its implementation, forge partnerships wherever necessary, secure funds and in turn, oversee their own development projects.

We ensure successful implementation and adoption of community projects. Techniques like Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA), Need-Profile Analysis and Need-prioritisation are used as effective community participation tools on the ground.

These activities undertaken by JSPL Foundation pursuing the CSR projects of JSPL are not only sustainable but are also aligned with Schedule VII under Companies Act 2013.
