  • First few decades, primarily focussed on Cigarettes and Leaf Tobacco businesses, ITC's Packaging & Printing Business was set up in 1925.In 1975, the Company launched its Hotels business with the acquisition of a hotel in Chennai -'ITC-Welcomgroup Hotel Chola‘. ITC chose the Hotels business for its potential to earn high levels of foreign exchange, create tourism infrastructure and generate large scale direct and indirect employment. Luxury Collection, WelcomHotels, Fortune Hotels and WelcomHeritage.In 1979, ITC entered the Paperboards business and in 1990 entered into specialty papers business by acquiring a specialty paper firm- Tribeni tissues limited. Also in 1990, set up agri business division for export of agri commodities.In 2000, started providing IT solutions through ITC Infotech India Limited.2000 onwards entered into apparels business and personal care products.
  • Comprises of watershed and agricultural development, women emp, primary education and livestock development.
  • ITCs social forestry programme simultaneously addresses the livelihood problems of marginal farmers and the ecological imperative of regenerating biomass and nurturing depleted soils. In an innovative move ,linking these farmers need for income to the wood fibre needs of its paperboards business, ITC has enabled them to convert their wastelands to pulpwood plantation-a commercially viable land use alternative that can end their marginalisation.
  • Two main objectives:Achieve self sufficiency& improve productivityProvide agri farmers a viable alternative land use option
  • TC believes that economic empowerment of women transforms them into powerful agents of social change.The need of the hour is to diversify rural livelihoods. Towards this end, ITC has forged an empowering partnership with rural women – the most effective development workers. ITC’s intervention leverages micro-credit and skills training to generate alternate employment opportunities. Increased income in the hands of rural women means better nutrition, health care and education for their children.  Working with NGOs, ITC has organised village women into micro-credit groups. Group members make monthly contributions to create a savings corpus. The corpus is used to extend soft loans to group members, thereby eliminating the stranglehold of the moneylender. The system of mandatory contribution further strengthens the savings habit, leading to capital augmentation
  • ITC provides training to group members to handle bank accounts and understand the nuances of government development programmes. Empowered groups function autonomously and take their own decisions, including sanction of loans to fellow-members and collection of repayments. Well-managed micro-credit groups with no default records receive further support from ITC in the form of seed money for self-employment activities
  • . Low Productivity Trap of Chikankari Workers Unorganised Extreme poverty Illiteracy Stranglehold of money lenders High interest rates on loan Long chain of intermediaries Labour model for work Social stigma Lack of skills and competency Gender bias
  • Spurred by India’s need to generate foreign exchange, ITC's International Business Division (IBD) wascreated in 1990 as an agri-trading company aiming to “offer the world the best of India's produce.”Initially, the agricultural commodity trading business was small compared to international players. By1996, the opening up of the Indian market had brought in international competition. Large internationalcompanies had better margin-to-risk ratios because of wider options for risk management and arbitrage.For an Indian company to replicate the operating model of such multinational corporations would haverequired a massive horizontal and vertical expansion. In 1998, after competition forced ITC to explore theoptions of sale, merger, and closure of IBD, ITC ultimately decided to retain the business. The Chairmanof ITC challenged IBD to use information technology to change the rules of the game and create acompetitive business that did not need a large asset base.
  • Choupal : ‘A village meeting Place’Vendors and customers come together to do business transactions e-choupal: A virtual market place where farmers can transact directly with a processor and can realize better value for their produce. The e-Choupal initiative directly links the rural farmers with the company for the procurement of agriculture and aquaculture products, such as soybeans, coffee, and prawns.
  • Rural India is a difficult business location. Transport, electric power, and information infrastructure are inadequate. Business practices are underdeveloped or outdated. Lack of access to modern resources has resulted in an under-trained workforce. Rural society is structured around subsistence and is unprepared for modern products and services. These constraints, along with many others, have dissuaded most companies from taking on the challenge of rural commerce. Over dependence on intermediaries : Because supply was very high as compared to demand. And since the entire supply chain was being controlled by intermediaries who tried to gain more profit at the cost of farmer’s effort the bargaining power of farmers was very low which ultimately led to lower margins for them Low Productivity : Had decreased due to weak physical as well as social infrastructure Low risk taking ability: Due to lack of customized knowledge advise Weak Market Orientation: They do not have access to real time information
  • ITC also initiated the ChoupalPradarshanKheth (ChoupalDemonstration Field) programmeto improve yields with ademonstration plot of land forevery village cluster. Acceptedbest practices have been putinto practice along with highquality fertilisers and seeds, andcomparisons made with yieldsfrom control plots to encouragefarmers to switch to improvedfarming inputs and methods.This programme is one aspect ofITC’s commitment to improvedagricultural yield, and issupplemented by the provision ofhigh quality seeds and fertilisers,both at the e-Choupal and atthe ITC rural retail centre, theChoupalSagar (CS).

    15. 15. Social & Farm Forestry
    16. 16. AIM:  An alternative means of livelihood for the rural community.  The project will promote the Eucalyptus & Casuarina Plantation under the Social Forestry Programme in West, East Godavari and Visakhapatnam districts for the development of small and marginal tribal and weaker section farmers through sangha concept.
    17. 17. Objective  To create awareness among the Tribal & Weaker section communities towards promotion, benefits, of Eucalyptus & Casuarina Plantation.  Carbon Sequestration through Reforestation of severely degraded land mass.  To provided alternative employment opportunities, good market linkages with the paper industry for the pulp wood growers for marketing their produce.  To free the farmers from the bondages of the middle men and to sell their produce at a reasonable price directly to the paper mills.
    18. 18. A growing Need… • Wood is the major raw material for pulp and paper industry. • ITC, launched a major plantation programme in 1982. • ITC, initiated a Biotechnology based Tree Improvement Programme (TIP) by promoting clonal plantation. • Tribal Farmers undertake the plantation and its maintenance in their own lands. • Sangha’s (Mandal Samakhyas - MS) would oversee the project activity implementation in their region, which includes awareness / training / resource provision and distribution. • ITC would provide sapling / financial resources.
    19. 19. Wonders of Clonal Technology Clonal technology primarily envisages taking advantages of the natural variation in tree species for immediate gains in productivity and quality from plantations. The field tested and proven superior genotypes are multiplied through vegetative propagation in greenhouses under controlled environmental conditions.
    20. 20.  ITC Bhadrachalam clones comprise natural as well as control pollinated hybrids of Eucalyptus and Subabul (Leucaena).  Advantages:  High rate of survival of clonal plantation.  High rate of productivity.  Reduced land requirements.  Cost & work effciency.  Additional income for farmers.
    21. 21. Project Working Area:  10 Mandals in East Godavari District  5 Mandals in West Godavari District  10 Mandals in Visakhapatnam District
    22. 22. Greening Wasteland • ITC’s afforestation mission goes beyond regenerating wastelands and forest. • Under this initiative superior planting stock is supplied to farmers. Here a free technical extension service is provided. • ITC offers attractive buy back arrangements for mature plantations.
    23. 23. ITC: Carbon Positive  Apart from other advantages, large scale greening effort plantation have the potential to sequester millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide, and create a potential Green House Gas.(GCH)  ITC has been placed in unique position of being eligible to create ‘ Certifiable CO2 Credits’.
    24. 24. Women Empowerment Initiative by ITC limited
    25. 25. Venture funds provided by ITC have already spawned hundreds of women entrepreneurs. Their earnings, ranging from Rs 70 to Rs 150 per day, not only supplement household incomes but also significantly enhance their self-esteem.

    50. 50. Renewable Energy ITC commitment to the environment is manifest in its constant endeavour to enlarge its positive carbon footprint. This is achieved not only through enhanced energy conservation, but also through use of renewable energy sources and expanding carbon sequestration through its large scale Social and Farm Forestry Programmes ITC is also constantly expanding its renewable energy portfolio. More than 38% of its energy consumption is now met from renewable sources, and this is expected to touch 50% in the next 4-5 years. Improved utilisation of carbon neutral fuels such as biofuels in the Paperboards and Specialty Papers Business and the commissioning of 13.8 MW wind power projects in Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu contributed to increased utilisation of renewable energy.
