History

Our Heritage

ACC’s earliest initiatives in community development date back to the 1940's – long before the term Corporate Social Responsibility was even coined. In 1952 the company launched its Village Welfare Scheme, as a full-fledged function at the corporate office and all its cement plants with a large team comprising social scientists, teachers, medical personnel, civil engineers and experts in agriculture, sanitation and crafts. ACC was the very first recipient of India's first ever CSR award instituted by ASSOCHAM in 1976 which was the ASSOCHAM National Award for outstanding performance in promoting rural and agricultural development activities. Today we have one of the country’s leading CSR engagements.
