Corporate Social Responsibility

Skill development is the mainstay of corporate social responsibility at Greenpanel, and with good reason. New technologies and product-innovation are changing the way we design furniture and make wood fixtures today.

 

It is in the interest of carpenters, contractors as well as homeowners and panel manufacturers like us that carpenters and contractors upgrade their skills regularly.

Education and empowerment

We have partnered with Udayan Care, a not-for-profit in West Bengal, to support the education of girls. Udayan’s Shalini Fellowship Programme supports higher education and provides regular mentoring and leadership development.

Healthcare

Healthcare infrastructure is often poor in the mountainous regions of India. Our Mobile Medical Van is a step towards improving access to healthcare in villages across Nagaland. The initiative is run with technical expertise by the Rural Development Institute, Himalayan Institute Hospital Trust, Dehradun.

We also support a reproductive health programme called Maitreyi in Tizit, Nagaland.

We also provide nutritious meals to underprivileged children in Tiljala, Topsia and adjoining areas of Kolkata, through Ektara–a Kolkata-based charitable organization.

Sustainable development

We plant fast-growing species of trees on degraded hill slopes in Nagaland, to promote sustainable use of natural resources and provide additional income to farmers. The large-scale plantations will naturally prevent further soil erosion and land degradation. We have also set up a nursery and clonal propagation centre in Tizit, Nagaland, to introduce genetically superior plant material.

Skill development

New technologies and product-innovation are changing the way we design furniture and make wood fixtures today. It is in the interest of carpenters, contractors as well as homeowners and panel manufacturers like us that carpenters and contractors upgrade their skills regularly.
We organise training workshops for carpenters, to familiarize them with the latest tools, techniques and products in wood panelling.

Our one-of-a-kind Android app Carpenter Guru hosts video tutorials, tips and best practices. It is available in nine languages: English, Hindi, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu.
