RMZ Foundation

Build. Support. Sustain.

RMZ Foundation was established to promote the well-being of humanity throughout the country. To achieve these goals, the Foundation works at the intersection of four focus areas – advance education, revalue ecosystems, secure livelihoods and transform urban development.

RMZ Foundation is on a quest for equality in society and sustainable progress, embodying RMZ Corp’s core philosophy of ‘Being the Change’. For well over a decade, the foundation has dedicated its existence towards facilitating holistic growth that has made a significant impact in numerous communities. The noble ideals and principles, that have given rise to the organization, remain the driving force behind its unwavering commitment towards changing the world for the better.

Driven by the need to build a better world for everyone, RMZ Foundation is merely an extension of the continuing work of RMZ that it already undertakes to improve the standards of living. Inspired by the work done by the company and the enormous impact on so many lives, RMZ Foundation took flight on the idea that a dedicated charitable wing would allow us to achieve greater goals for the community at large.

Reaching Out and Touching Lives

Over the years, RMZ Foundation has focussed its efforts towards improving the lives of the underprivileged, with the aim of creating an equitable atmosphere of growth and progress, which promises a better world for future generations.

Over the years this dedication has helped to extend the foundation's reach far beyond dayto-day business operations, touching the lives of 2, 00,000people in the year 2015-16 alone, through a myriad of initiatives.

Exploring Ways to Make a Difference

Today's global landscape is characterized by rapid development and a fast-paced lifestyle that has become increasingly blind and inconsiderate, leaving suffering in its wake. This is especially true for India, as is evident from the urban environment, which showcases leaps

in progress but at a devastating cost for the underprivileged members of society. RMZ Foundation's initiatives are conceived to right these wrongs and extend a helping hand to the unfortunate ones who have been left behind.

Envisioning the Change

The successes of RMZ Foundation's initiatives have transformed and enriched countless lives, continuing to pave the way for the evolution of each initiative, endowing them with the potential to make an even greater impact during the course of the year ahead.

Crafting a Future of Infinite Possibilities

Today, RMZ Foundation's initiatives have already played significant roles in enhancing the lives of many. The vision of the foundation goes far beyond the initiatives, however. The idea is to leave a lasting impression on the next generation, resulting in responsible and compassionate future citizens, who will keep striving to make a difference by 'Being the Change'

BEING THE CHANGE

In alignment with vision of the company, RMZ Corp, through its Foundation initiatives, will strive and continue Being the Change by enhanced value creation in the society and in the community in which it operates, through its services, conduct & initiatives, so as to promote sustained growth for the society and community at large, in fulfilment of its role as a Socially Responsible Corporate, with environmental concern.

Before Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) found a place in corporate lexicon, it was already textured into RMZ group value systems. As early as the 2000, our Group Chairman Shri Arjun Menda espoused the concept of Giving back to society. Simply stated, this meant investing part of our profits beyond business for the larger group of society.

At RMZ, we believe in building a better tomorrow through our efforts in maintaining ecological harmony in all our projects.

MEET OUR TEAM

Mrs. Anu Menda

Managing Trustee, RMZ Foundation

"Progress is impossible without change; evolution, the foundation of life itself, is based on that concept. And looking at the world around us, it is quite clear that a change is imperative. With development turning a blind eye to consequences, a move towards a responsible and compassionate society has become the need of the hour.

Modern philanthropy is based on the belief that the focus of any effective change should be the underprivileged members of society; the victims of blind progress.

The time has now come for us to look ahead and sculpt new ideas to address the most pressing issues affecting the world we live in, ushering in an era of inclusive growth.

To create any significant impact, innovation is key, combined with a versatile approach, which presents a multi-faceted outlook, keeping in tune with the changing dynamics of a fast-paced world.

By systematizing the approach towards making a difference, RMZ Foundation has identified five core areas, through which we can accelerate change and give rise to an atmosphere of harmony and happiness for all."

Mr. Venugopal A.N

President, RMZ Foundation

"One of human kind’s greatest challenges, during the course of this century, will be to ensure sustainable, just and balanced development. The needs of current and future generations cannot be met unless there is respect for natural systems and international standards protecting core social and environmental values.

As a responsible corporate citizen, RMZ Corp is consistently and rigorously incorporating principles of sustainability in all aspects of its business starting right from site selection, to maximizing the energy efficiency of the assets that we develop and manage.

We derive the core of RMZ's sustainability philosophy from the broad framework developed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The Foundation’s priorities are centred on the three pillars of Environmental, Economical and Social impact.

To deliver excellence in sustainability, the foundation is being supported by key employees who have been identified as the sustainability leaders to drive the initiatives, being the change agents and help drive the shared value for the stakeholders of RMZ."
