Organizations, like individuals, depend for their survival, sustenance and growth on the support and goodwill of the communities of which they are an integral part, and must pay back this generosity in every way they can…

This ethical standpoint, derived from the vision of our founder, lies at the heart of the CSR philosophy of the Flying Group.

While we strongly believe that our primary obligation or duty as corporate entities is to our shareholders – we are just as mindful of the fact that this imperative does not exist in isolation; it is part of a much larger compact which we have with our entire body of stakeholders: From employees, customers and vendors to business partners, eco-system, local communities, and society at large.

We evaluate and assess each critical business decision or choice from the point of view of diverse stakeholder interest, driven by the need to minimize risk and to pro-actively address long-term social, economic and environmental costs and concerns.

For us, being socially responsible is not an occasional act of charity or that one-time token financial contribution to the local school, hospital or environmental NGO. It is an ongoing year-round commitment, which is integrated into the very core of our business objectives and strategy.

Because we believe that there is no contradiction between doing well and doing right. Indeed, doing right is a necessary condition for doing well.

At Flying Group of Industries, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been an integral part of the way we have been doing our business since inception. For more than 35 years, the Group’s CSR initiatives has played pivotal role in improving the lives of the communities and society at large and in & around our operations with an objective to energize, involve and enable them to realize their potential.
