Our founders always had a vision of doing business that extended beyond the realms of ‘business only’ and encompassed the communities they served, the environment, and contributed towards boosting the idea of the Aatmanirbharta of India. In this edition of CHANGE, we have a mix of articles that collectively elaborate upon the theme of ‘Business and Beyond’. Swati narrates the story of how Godrej Appliances has pursued the premiumization of its product and service portfolio. Sushil Agarkar shares a story of developmental efforts put in by his team for realizing a steam generator for BARC. Kudos to this team for these successful efforts. Logistics has emerged as a function of vital importance for serving customers better, Praveen Sharma shares with us how they are pursuing excellence in this field. Our process equipment business has been playing an important role in the production of hydrogen – the fuel of the future. Read about it in an article by Aastha Banodha. ‘Meri Kalam se’ is all about the dreams of young Indians which were revealed so tellingly from a joint initiative of Pirojsha Godrej Foundation and CRY. The Foundation is making silent but commendable efforts for the betterment of lives of many. The contributions of Mrs. Binaifer Chhoga, in making the education cutting edge at Udayachal Primary Schools are well captured by Mrs. Priya Nair in her article, which is well worth a read. Further, Col. Verma shares with us how the teams at Godrej Memorial Hospital are reaching out to the communities to promote measures for preventive healthcare. Amar Chitra Katha launched a book on our founder, Naval Godrej, in its widely read comic book format. The book Naval Godrej – Pioneer Of Progress is reviewed by Araina and Tanmayee, students of UHS. Do buy a copy of this book, which is well-illustrated and easy to read for yourself, your family members, and your friends.

In addition, we have many other useful articles on safety, digitalization, on boosting enthusiasm, and on becoming an Ironman. Harini, formerly of Godrej Archives, tells us all about how Storewels became a product of circumstance.

Team CHANGE hopes you will find the articles shared here informative and relevant for pursuing the vision of our founders which extends beyond business.

Happy Reading!
