Nuvoco strong core values
Nuvoco Vistas is a leading manufacturer and retailer of building materials in India, offering a diversified business portfolio under three broad business segments, namely, cement, ready-mix concrete (RMX) that enjoys a pan-India presence, and modern building materials (MBM).
Guided by one of the core values, care; Nuvoco has always made a responsible and sustainable contribution to the society in which it operates to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all its stakeholders. Nuvoco's corporate social responsibility initiatives focus on five themes; namely, Surakshit Bharat (safety), Swasth Bharat (health), Shikshit Bharat (education), Saksham Bharat (livelihood) and Sanrachit Bharat (infrastructure development) through which we have reached out to 1,98,000 people across 103 villages.
While the world was grappling with a situation that off-guarded everyone and pervaded every facet of our lives; Nuvoco ensured that all its stakeholders, not limited to its employees were safe and secure. Our employees came forward to support the channel partners (dealers and sub-dealers) and the local communities by contributing a day's salary. Plant teams and their families came ahead to support the nearby villages by producing and distributing face masks, food packets, and other essential services. Nuvocans' combined were able to distribute approximately 12,000 safety kits comprising of N95 mask, cotton mask, face shield and temperature scanners in the east and north markets and to the local district administration across locations. They also supported in installing approximately 750 hand wash stations (a foot-operated washbasin developed in-house that enables people to avoid handling taps or soap dispensers) at public places in Jharkhand, Bengal and Chhattisgarh markets and donated a ventilator machine at the government hospital in Janjgir Champa district of Chhattisgarh.
