Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
As operators in an industry that potentially has a high impact on the environment, Polyplex is conscious of its corporate responsibility towards habitat and communities.
During the Covid pandemic, the Company across all its locations have made monetary contributions to NGO’s, Hospitals and Govt relief funds. The Company has also donated sanitizers, necessary medical equipments and protective gear for healthcare workers. Various NGO’s have been supported by providing necessary food supplies to the communities around our locations.

Through an R&D initiative, Polyplex has promoted the use of bio-based renewable raw material and energy for the production of polyester film.
A key component of our carbon offset solutions includes positive eco-action through Tree Plantation drives at plant locations, helping raise the local bio-diversity index etc.
At its plant location in Khatima, India, the Company runs a school for the past almost three decades with over 1870 students which provide equal educational opportunities to children from all sections of the society.

Polyplex has also undertaken a slew of sports and education sponsorships, besides full scholarships to school-going children of deceased employees.
Polyplex is closely integrated into local communities through comprehensive and sustained social programmes.
