Sustainability framework

Our sustainability framework focuses on three themes: people, planet and profit. It is designed to promote transparency, accountability, sound environmental practices and social responsibility.

Stakeholder engagement

Our goal is to become a globally admired organization and earn the respect of all our stakeholders - Mindtree Minds and their families, customers, partners, suppliers, vendors, shareholders, communities, government and regulatory bodies.

Engaging with our stakeholders is an integral component of an expertise led organization. We determine material aspects through a rigorous brainstorming process involving key stakeholders within the organization. This, we believe, will provide us with valuable insights and will catalyze continuous improvement. The feedback received through the process of stakeholder engagement is a crucial input into our strategy setting process and defines our actions in the future.
