CSR

Time and money spent in helping men to do more for themselves is far better than mere giving.
Henry Ford

Corporate responsibility is not simply a policy at Patel Engineering, but a way of working. Active engagement with humanitarian and charitable causes is a defining feature of the people at Patel.

This commitment influences Patel's approach to projects, to clients and collaborators. We believe the very business of doing business in a responsible way has a positive social impact; addressing the issues facing the world now - from clean water, better healthcare, green energy and better schools, to sustainable and vibrant cities and an empowered workforce and citizenry - does not pose a choice between business strategy and citizenship strategy. Rather, it represents a fusion of the two. 

We dont want this to become checkbook philantrophy; instead we want this to become a sustained and engaged partnership for positive change.

Our projects are in some of the most rural areas. Patel is in the process of developing a strategy to identify the most enduring problems in an area close to where we work and, mobilize our technological and human resources, and deploy strategic and deliberate solutions by collaborating and working with local leaders or NGO's operating in the area to make sure benefit of these solutions accrue at the community level. The key is to methodically align our community service efforts to our areas of business expertise so that we are able to engage longer and more meaningfully.


We don't want to this to become checkbook philanthropy; instead we want this to become a sustained and engaged partnership for positive change. And it allows us to scale our programs over time and form lasting, collaborative partnerships through which we can both transfer knowledge and build capacity.


This staying power can be seen in some of our programs that we are currently supporting, from those that help bring education to young children, jobs for the blind and physically handicap.

We have to make our society safer, more accountable, and more sustainable - The consequences of inaction are dire and that's what makes the opportunity great. The transformations we've seen by exercising our intensions with the efforts are encouraging and this is opening up a growing dialogue and generating thousands of new ideas.
