Mr. J N Godrej gives us five priorities which must be thought through in depth and acted upon urgently

The theme, THINK AFRESH, ACT ANEW brings into focus the next steps we need to take to make G&B a thriving organization in the decade ahead. What do we need to Think Afresh? Customers served, markets addressed, products offered, our distinctive capabilities, cost structures, people policies, digitalization, technologies deployed and the like that impact our ‘right to win’. Mr. J N Godrej gives us five priorities which must be thought through in depth and acted upon urgently. It is worth noting that some of our businesses have undertaken several strategic initiatives to emerge stronger despite the pandemic. Also, Mr. J N Godrej took a pledge supporting the EP100 global initiative to double the energy productivity of G&B by 2030. Likewise, G&B has voluntarily set ambitious goals to reduce emissions by 60% by 2030. Tejashree and her colleagues have written about these commitments with us which are worth reading. The concept of Aatma Nirbhar Bharat and what needs to be done more, is elaborated in an article by Dr. R. A. Mashelkar. Poorav Seth shares with us all about the digital transformation in progress at Godrej. Anil Verma told CHANGE about how our businesses and corporate departments aligned strongly to have enough and more cash to sustain operations. The trials and tribulations faced in collecting more cash than the billed sales are shared in a compelling manner by Raghavendra of Godrej E&E. Godrej Precision Engineering (GPE) won the CII Exim Bank Award - 2020 for Business Excellence and has the distinction of being the first capital goods manufacturer to do so. The new is up and running. Do visit us and read about what it took to develop this state-of-the-art website in an article written by Kalpesh and Deepak. Notwithstanding the pandemic, our people in the field have achieved remarkable results. And we have recognized the super achievers of Interio and E&E, which makes an inspiring read. Besides these articles, we have many interesting stories that convey meaningful lessons. As always, we have many features for Godrejiites and their families to enjoy and benefit from. Do frequently delve into an e-version of CHANGE and encourage your family and friends to do so as well. The emerging contours of G&B point towards a better future for all.
