Chairman's Speech (Elecon Engineering Company) Year : Mar '10
Barely fifty years ago, the worlds environment was largely in balance.
 Modern man in the name of progress has polluted his way towards a
 global catastrophe. The starkness of environmental degradation looms us
 everywhere. We have been preposterously spoiling it bit by bit and now
 the rate of our exploitation is becoming too much to handle for the
 environment and it has slowly started giving up. The insane selfish
 activities of humans like deforestation, bottom trawling, and wide
 spread pollution (toxic and non toxic as well as ground, water and air)
 has led us to a point where working in unison to protect it is our only
 option.
 
 We here at Elecon believe that it is the right of our children and
 theirs to witness the environment in all its glory, which unfortunately
 we just read about now because of our actions, Having awakened to the
 facts for over 35 years now we have made it the theme of our
 publications spread the message to preserve the environment.
 
 Through this, we would like to request you once again to show
 environment concern and be a step ahead in preventing the deterioration
 of our mother nature.
 
 Lets Preserve Our Environment

 Indian Industries have started with a real boom. In Steel, Sugar and
 Infrastructure Sector, as well the need of Power and that too of green
 energy is being felt by each one of us, for which many new players are
 emerging out, though a bit late in the race where Eleconsdreams are
 also coming true after a lot of tough waiting.

 - Corporate Social Responsibility
 
 We at ELECON believe that its one of our core responsibility as a
 Corporate to give back to the society in which we operate. Year on year
 we have been actively involved in upliftment activities focusing
 majorly in the areas nearby apart from employees development
 activities.
 
 Our yearly commitments include developmental activities in Indiranagar
 (the village that we have adopted) near Napad, maintenance of the
 Bhanubhai and Madhuben Patel cardiac centre that was built by us at
 Shri Krishna Hospital along with other medical facilities, we
 contribute in a positive way to 3 schools and 3 parks that we have
 built in and around Vallabh Vidyanagar, Gujarat.
 
 Through our social service wing ELCARE and ELF we try to reach out and
 offer help wherever possible. Some of our community involvement this
 year were:
 
 Mega Blood Donation Camp:
 
 India needs around 400 million units of blood each year out of which it
 is only able to collect around 5 million units.This leads to a severe
 shortage of blood and in many cases deprives people in acute need of
 it, causing fatalities. We organize blood donation camps with the IRS
 (Indian Red Cross Society) on a regular basis for our employees and
 organized a Super Mega Blood Donation Camp for everyone to come and
 donate for this cause. We were able to successfully collect 1067 Units
 of blood in a single day which is a record number for collection in
 Anand and Kheda District.
 
 Scholarship to Students:
 
 We believe that right education is the foundation that the India of
 tomorrow will be built upon. So, not letting money be a constraint for
 the deserving students to pursue higher education, we give scholarships
 to meritious students that cover their food, hostel and tuition fees.
 The selection is made by considering the financial situation of the
 applicant amongst other things. Last year we offered 45 scholarships
 with the number set to increase to 60 students this year.
 
 Apart from these, we have also actively participated in various other
 small activities like donation of computers to a school in a nearby
 village, organizing various sports events, organizing various cultural
 events and creative activities, helping a school for the differently
 able (visually impared) children, providing training to students to
 help them develop a good and thorough understanding of their fields of
 education and reaching out to other societal causes through our social
 service wings EL CARE and ELF.
