Our founder, Ardeshir Godrej, lawyer-turned-locksmith, was a persistent inventor and a strong visionary who could see the spark in the future. His inventions, manufactured by his brother Pirojsha Godrej, were the foundation of today’s Godrej empire. One of India’s most trusted brand, Godrej enjoys the patronage and trust of over 470 million Indians every single day. Our customers mean the world to us. We are happy only when we see a delighted customer smile.With 7 major companies with interests in real estate, FMCG, industrial engineering, appliances, furniture, security and agri care – to name a few – our turnover crosses 2.6 billion dollars. You think of Godrej as such an integral part of India – like the bhangara or the kurta – that you may be surprised to know that 20% of our business is done overseas. Our presence in more than 60 countries ensures that our customers are at home with Godrej no matter where they go. With brands you can believe in, service excellence you can count on and the promise of brighter living for every customer, Godrej knows what makes India tick today.Today, we are at a point in Godrej’s history when our amazing past is meeting up with its spectacular future head on. Godrej is learning and relishing being young again.

  • The spirit of entrepreneurship, the vision of a dynamic tomorrow, and the capacity to build and realize dreams! This is the essence of the Godrej group. No wonder then, Godrej has become the symbol of a vibrant multi-business enterprise touching the lives of millions and at the same time an icon of enduring ideals in a changing world.
  • Godrej and Boyce is now mainly concentrating on strategy's to connect with the people and esp the youth to create more visibility. Thus promoting IPL, Media, advertisements, etcBecause there are still many people who are not aware of what all appliances Godrej manufactures. People are only aware of the refrigerators and cupboards. Thus there is a need to create more awareness.Godrej Industries on the other hand is more closer to consumers due to successful and fast growing products like Cinthol Soaps, Deodrants, Ezee...etc as compared to consumer durables.
  • 25% of the shares of the Godrej Group’s holding company Godrej & Boyce are held in a trust that invests back in the environment, healthcare and education. Which means business is not just about revenues and profits but keeping our land green, our communities healthy and our kids smart. In 1920, our founder Ardeshir Godrej gave a donation of Rs. 3 laths to the Tilak Swaraj Fund – then considered a princely sum – for upliftment of the downtrodden. His gesture of philanthropy grew into Godrej corporate policy. Giving back turned into our way of saying thank you to the 400 million Indians who are Godrej loyalists.About 25% of the shares of the holding company—that money is ploughed back into environment, into education, into healthcare
  • The Pirojsha Godrej Foundation, established in 1972, owns one-third shares of the holding company, Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd. The income from dividends is utilized for promoting the objectives of the Trust, which includes providing medical relief to the poor and critically ill, educational aid to students, and relief funds in case of natural disasters.Apart from promoting culture and the time arts (through the Godrej Dance Academy), sea cadets (Boating Section), libraries, school, blood banks, The Godrej Baug for low income people, the Red Cross Disaster Center at Vikhroli and the Pirojsha Godrej Memorial Wing at Breach Candy Hospital are born of this foundation.Significant contribution have been made to, among others, the World Wide Fund for Nature-India, the Bombay Environment Action Group, the Latur Earthquake Relief Fund, the Andhra Cyclone Relief Fund, the Prime Minister Relief Fund and the Chief Minister Relief Fund.
  • The Soonabai Pirojsha Godrej Foundation, founded in March, 1974, it provides fund for education, and other worthy causes. The trust maintains large tracts of protected land for two separate projects - the conservation of mangroves and building an integrated housing colony for lower and middle income groups in association with the Housing Development Finance Corporation.The Godrej Memorial Trust, established in 1994, the Trust is a voluntary, non-religious, non-sectarian, non-political charitable trust which is involved in maintaining hospitals, clinics, dispensaries and providing medical relief to the underprivileged. The Trust runs a clinic in New Delhi which provides facilities for operations, examinations, immunization, counseling and family welfare. The Trust has also initiated a project to establish a specialized hospital near Delhi.The Naoroji Godrej Center for Plant Research, started in 1992, the Center is involved in basic and applied research in horticulture, pisiculture, sericulture, floriculture and preservation of endangered species. Beside this, it acquires land to conduct the above activities on and ties up with institution/individuals to successfully execute community projects. Its seven primary projects include the conservation of threatened plant species, development of an ideal village and mass propagation of medical plants.

  • Green Business Centre: Spearheading the Green RevolutionThe CII-Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Center was conceived by Godrej and the Confederation of Indian Industry in partnership with the Andhra Pradesh Government. The Green Business Centre is the first building in the world to receive the Platinum LEED award, making it one of the most environmentally advanced buildings in the world. The Green Building is a symbol of Environmental Sustainability. For Environmental Sustainability, one has to adapt a holistic approach whilst constructing a building and also ensure that this approach is integrated in its subsequent operation. Also, of optimum importance is Safety during Construction and post Occupancy. A Green building and a conventional building would visually not look very different, but the difference really lies in the design, the construction and operational aspects. A Green Building keeps Environmental concerns in focus in several areas – such as selection of site for the building, selection and usage of materials, architectural features, efficiencies in water and energy management (including energy efficiency of equipments in the building), indoor air quality and occupant thermal comfort.MangrovesThe largest privately managed belt of Mangroves in Mumbai is supported by the Soonabai Pirojsha Godrej Foundation. This is the first such mangrove area in India to formally adopt ISO14001 standards for Environment Management Systems. The vast tract of unique mangrove forests conserved and protected by Godrej in Vikhroli, demonstrates how industry and nature could well exist in harmony with each other. These Mangroves serve as the second lung of the city only after Sanjay Gandhi National Park. The mangrove flora of Pirojshanagar is well diversified. There are 13 species of mangroves and mangrove associates. The faunal composition – with 206 species of birds, 30 species of reptiles, 13 species of crabs, 7 species of prawns and 20 species of fish identified so far in the area - is equally diverse. Mammals like jackals and mongoose have also been spotted many a times. The Soonabai Pirojsha Godrej Marine Ecology Centre (SPGMEC) was formally inaugurated and set up under the leadership of the late ornithologist Dr. Salim Ali. SPGMEC is engaged in conservation of the marine diversity (mangrove ecosystem) through research, education/awareness building and regular monitoring. Simultaneously, the centre propagates various species of mangroves, developing theme parks on medicinal plants and rare endemic plant species, palms amongst others. Every year, around 10,000 visitors learn about bio-diversity in mangroves, its importance and threats for its survival through nature trails, slide shows, film shows, awareness campaigns, visits to Mangrove Interpretation Centre and articles in newsletters. Visit mangroves.godrej.com for more information.World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)We have been associated with India’s largest conservation NGO, WWF-India, starting with the late Mr. S. P. Godrej, who was its founder Trustee and President to Jamshyd Godrej who is currently the President of WWF-India and the Vice President of WWF-International. WWF-India began as a modest, wild-life conservation organisation. Over the years, the perspective has broadened to encompass conservation of habitats and ecosystems and to lend support to the management of the country’s protected area network. Our commitment to global conservation is reflected in our continued association with WWF. The WWF-India Secretariat is housed at the Pirojsha Godrej National Conservation Center (PGNCC) in New Delhi. The PGNCC was inaugurated on November 3, 1989 by then President of India Mr. R. Venkatraman, in the presence of the President of WWF-International, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. Nature has blessed our country so richly. Yet, instead of being trustees of Nature, we have degraded our land to lower depths than many less fortunate countries. We have been associated with TRAFFIC-India (Trade Record Analysis of Flora and Fauna in Commerce), a division of WWF-India, which is responsible for monitoring and studying legal and illegal trade in wildlife and its derivatives, thus contributing to the enforcement aspects of bio-diversity conservation. Our contributions to the cause received a boost, when the late Chairman, Mr. S. P. Godrej was conferred with the WWF 25th Anniversary Benefactor "White Pelican" Award.Trees and AfforestationIt has been our endeavour to protect our forests and propagate greenery. The Godrej name has always associated with Trees. The late Mr. S. P. Godrej had been the Vice-President of the National Society of the Friends of Trees and Mrs. Pheroza Godrej is its current President. For the past many years a well-stocked Tree Bank is maintained at Pirojshanagar and saplings are generously distributed, free of cost to voluntary organisations engaged in afforestation work.
  • Importance of MangrovesBuffer Zone between the land and sea.Protect the land from erosion. Play an invaluable role as nature's shield against cyclones, ecological disasters and as protector of shorelines.Breeding and nursery grounds for a variety of marine animals.Harbour a variety of lifeforms like invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and even mammals like tigers.Good source of timber, fuel and fodder.Main source of income generation for shoreline communities like fisherfolk.Save the marine diversity, which is fast diminishing.Purify the water by absorbing impurities and harmful heavy metals and help us to breathe a clean air by absorbing pollutants  in the air.Potential source for recreation and tourism
  • The Western bank of the Thane Creek is the single largest mangrove belt in Mumbai. A substantial tract of mangrove land is adjoining the Godrej & Boyce township, Pirojshanagar, in Vikhroli a suburb of Mumbai. Vast area under mangroves has been conserved by Soonabai Pirojsha Godrej Marine Ecology Centre. Well diversified and well protected, these are the last- quality mangroves in the city. The vast expanse of these mangroves serve as a second lung of the city only after the Sanjay Gandhi National Park which is under immense environmental pressures.The mangrove flora of Pirojshanagar is well diversified. There are 16 species of mangroves and mangrove associates. The faunal composition in the area is also equally diverse. Apart from 206 species of birds, 30 species of reptiles, 13 species of crabs, 7 species of prawns and 20 species of fish have been identified so far in the area. Mammals like jackals and mongoose also were sited many a timesThis wetland acts as an important stopover for over hundred species of migratory birds including magnificent flamingos, gulls, terns, avocets & curlews.MangrovesThe largest privately managed belt of Mangroves in Mumbai is supported by the Soonabai Pirojsha Godrej Foundation.

  • Godrej Memorial HospitalThe Godrej Memorial Hospital (GMH) has treated 35,000 patients and performed 3,128 surgeries since inception. We provide quality healthcare services at an affordable cost in a rational and ethical manner. We have free well-equipped cardiac ambulances to attend to medical emergencies in a 10 km zone. An Anti Retroviral Treatment Center in association with NACO is available for HIV patients. GMH was set up by Godrej Memorial Trust. The objective of the hospital was to create a balance between the philanthropic hospital in the city and the private hospitals. For this, an alternate business model was created which would emulate philanthropic hospitals but have high quality healthcare services at an affordable cost. The hospital has implemented this unique business model, and today even the highest rates in the state-of-the-art hospital are 40-60 percent lower than other private hospitals. The model is inspired by the concept of Sustainable Philanthropy. This model was adopted with the belief that a wholly philanthropic model would not be sustainable and would grow only in a very limited sense. GMH has been awarded the NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals) accreditation w.e.f. 1st July 2009. GMH is now in the league of a select few hospitals in India to have achieved the same. The hospital has to comply with more than 500 predetermined objectives to receive NABH accreditation. The accreditation assures ‘Quality of Care & Patient Safety’ in accredited Hospitals. NABH standards are accredited by International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua) as consistent with its global benchmarks.Visit Udayachal at www.godrejhospital.comAIDS AwarenessGodrej supports The Heroes Project in trying to bring an end to misconceptions and in spreading awareness about HIV and AIDS. In addition, employees are urged to take preventive care to combat AIDS through posters, hand outs, street plays and talks. Heroes AIDS Project is a national initiative launched in July 2004 to work with media organizations and societal leaders in India. It seeks to develop coordinated campaigns to address the spread of HIV & AIDS and reduce stigma and discrimination by influencing public perception and policy through two platforms: advocacy and communications. The project had its beginning in a fund raising event for pediatric AIDS organized by Mrs. Parmeshwar Godrej called ‘A Time for Heroes, India’. The event, held in December ’02 was hugely successful and brought together Indian media, entertainment and business houses which committed to use their combined strength to advocate on issues related to HIV and AIDS. India, with its population of over one billion people, requires timely and sustained intervention in the area of HIV and AIDS. Heroes AIDS Project aims to harness India’s communication power by converting the passion and ideals of a small but powerful core of concerned individuals into tangible actions by the government and public in India. The Project seeks to advocate with the Indian government to strengthen existing methods of information distribution; and create a range of communication materials to complement advocacy and media initiatives so that the public is connected to important HIV and AIDS related services. Twenty-eight television PSAs and numerous radio PSAs productions and around 29,000 times their airing across various media networks later, Heroes AIDS Project is the largest non-governmental media campaign garnering nearly fifty-percent of the media exposure on HIV and AIDS in India. Visit HP at www.heroesprojectindia.orgBlood DonationBlood is a life saving fluid. It can be produced only by the human body, making it priceless. It gives the gift of life to many people in critical conditions. A blood donation camp is organized by Godrej every year on the death anniversaries of its founders Naval Godrej and Burjorji Godrej. Godrejites support this noble cause in big numbers and save precious lives of fellow humans. The number of people donating blood in consecutive years has always shown an encouraging trend. Leading hospitals, the Red Cross Society and Indian Medical Association extend their help in conducting these camps.Smile TrainA ‘smile’ is perhaps one of the best gifts God has bestowed on us. It helps to forget worries, sorrows and shortcomings. Some of us are however less fortunate, to be deprived of this precious gift due to a birth defect commonly known as a Cleft Lip and Palate. Children with these defects are unable to suckle or chew properly. The deformity makes these otherwise normal children, objects of ridicule and superstition. Millions of children in India and other developing countries are born with this handicap. The good news is that almost all can be helped by skillful plastic surgery. Godrej Memorial Hospital (GMH) along with a US based NGO ‘Smile Train’ conducts a program, for helping these very children from poor families. The program consists of primary consultation and screening followed by expert plastic surgery. The operation lasts for any where between 45 min. to three hours depending on the extent and complexity of the defect. Several of the patients are offered follow up speech therapy and other support services. Children operated at a younger age seem to derive optimum benefit. Over 300 surgeries have been successfully conducted at GMH till date. GMH offers surgery and hospitalization to the patient and one attendant completely free of cost. Deserving cases are also reimbursed travel costs by the hospital. Visit www.smiletrain.orgFoundation for Medical ResearchGodrej supports the Foundation for Medical Research (FMR), Mumbai, particularly for the cure of leprosy. This Foundation is intended to develop an alternative model the immunological concept regarding leprosy cure. Through a rural health and research project, Godrej has striven to develop an alternative model for rural health care based on community participation, with the emphasis on preventive rather than curative aspects.

  • Family PlanningGodrej has been connected with the Family Planning Foundation, which is a voluntary organisation devoted to promote Family Planning as a basic human right, as well as population Policies which can help bring about a balanced development of the resources of the country-both human and material - as a means towards raising the quality of life. ‘Pragati Kendra’ imparts not only information regarding Family Planning but, through various social and cultural activities, provides for a better quality of life for the inhabitants of the township. A Family Planning Centre was opened in September 1957. Family Planning advice and conventional contraceptives at concessional rates were provided. Family Planning Exhibitions were held. A Vasectomy Centre was opened. Volunteers were trained in an intensive one-week orientation course. Incentives are offered to persons undergoing vasectomy and tubectomy operations. In 1965 a Research Centre was opened with the help of Dr. R. P. Soonawala and the Ford Foundation authorities. To give fillip to the family Planning Programme, the services of two American Peace Corps volunteers were engaged. The Family Planning Programme is an integral part of the “Family Welfare Programme". A ‘Well Baby Clinic’ has been opened for giving advice to mothers about their children's health and hygiene as also for advising them about IUCD and oral contraceptives. About 1135 children have been treated so far at this clinic. This long-standing Family Planning programme has definitely been able to lift workers into the middle-class, at least at Godrej.
  • Table for TwoGodrej instituted the Indian chapter of ‘Table For Two’ initiative at the World Economic Forum’s India Economic Summit in December 2008. This initiative is targeted at addressing hunger and malnutrition in the developing world by combining the organization’s tradition of serving society and involvement of individuals. Godrej pledged to collect funds that would be utilized to provide school children mid-day meals. The fund was created in three ways. Firstly, a ‘healthy meal’ option was provided in the canteen menus to the employees. The savings from the reduced use of oil and sugar were diverted to the central pool of funds for the ‘Table For Two’ initiative. This means that each time an employee ordered a ‘healthy meal’, the savings contributed to this fund and provided Godrejites with an even healthier alternative for lunch. Secondly, Godrejites voluntarily contributed a fixed monthly amount to the fund. Thirdly, the contribution from the ‘healthy meals’ menu was matched by Godrej and effectively combined corporate and employee participation. The initiative has been a great success within the first few months of its inception – with a sizeable fund that is geared to feeding close to 780 school children and providing for 1,56,000 meals annually.
  • The activity of hardware packet making for chairs has been outsourced to National Association for Disabled Enterprises (NADE) for the last several years.The objective of this decision was to ensure continued occupation for the visually disabled. The activity began way back in 1996-97, where approximately 8,000 to 10,000 hardware packets of 30 different kinds every month were made by them.This activity continues till date, with the scope increasing to 40,000 packets of 200 kinds. The type of hardware components hasalso increased from 20 components then to 75 components now, with the change in business scenario and customerrequirements. In a span of about ten years, we got approximately 3 million hardware packets from NADE.What is amazing is that the defects due to wrong packing was observed to be less then 2000 PPM, which is really a commendable performance by the people working on it.The activity has also helped us learn that when a process is fool proofed and there is a level of dedication towards it, the output can be excellent.
