At Huawei India, we strive to respond to need gaps, both in the regions where we operate and within the organization, thereby establishing ourselves as a responsive organization, besides being a responsible one. As such, we are firmly committed to creating a win-win industry ecosystem that promotes the sustainable development of the economy, society and environment."

CSR Highlights in 2011
Huawei India's green site solutions encompass a variety of initiatives that stem from (a) innovative measures to reduce power consumption and minimize carbon emissions for the company's operations and products; (b) relentless efforts to ensure that every link in the company's supply chain and every part of its manufacturing process use environment-friendly techniques.
Bridging the Digital Divide
Launched in 2010, Huawei India's E-Hope initiative aims to equip less privileged schoolchildren with basic technical knowledge and access to the latest information, technology and computer systems. By providing computers to schools and promoting equal access to connectivity, the program will contribute significantly to narrowing the gap between the digital ‘haves' and ‘have-nots'. E-Hope is being rolled out in phases: it intends to reach out to about 100,000 children annually, and to create a knowledge network of 1,000 schools within the next two to three years.
Supply Chain CSR
Supplier Training Programs
Huawei India's supplier training programs are among the best in the industry. They include comprehensive on-site training programs, classroom teaching sessions to educate suppliers about new products, customized courses for each of the company's products, special programs that train suppliers to expand their offerings and grow their competencies, leadership training programs to enhance the skills of suppliers' team leaders, and many others. Huawei India's emphasis on continuous learning and betterment and its genuine desire to help its suppliers grow, has helped the company build enduring relationships with its suppliers.
Caring for Employees
The Environment, Health and Safety Program
The health, safety and well-being of our people mean a lot to us. Huawei India has successfully implemented an OHSAS 18001:2007-compliant Health and Safety Management system. Fully committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees, we regularly conduct health checks, and safety and emergency preparedness training sessions at work.
The Maitree Scholarship Program
Launched in early 2011, Huawei India's Maitree Scholarship Program offers 10 scholarships annually to Indian undergraduate and postgraduate students who have already secured admission to institutions of higher education in China. The scholarship scheme aims to build a platform for the exchange of ideas between the two nations and foster a closer understanding of each others' culture and society.
