CSR and Sustainability

The Tata Motors Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives focus on the improvement of the quality of life of the underprivileged communities based around the business operations. Keeping up with the United Nations declared Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs), the company focuses on the health, employment, education as well as environment of the communities and puts special emphasis on the historically and socially deprived SC and ST communities. In 2020-21, the CSR interventions touched 7.5 Lakh human lives in India, of which 41% belonged to the SC and ST community.The enterprise has a six-pronged CSR strategy. These 6 tenets are:
  1. Adopting Human Life Cycle Approach
  2. Upstream and Downstream Linkages
  3. Philosophy of More From Less for More

  6. Leveraging Technology
  With these, the CSR strategy not only attends to the societal needs of prenatal care and education, it also ensures help with both high school and professional education and employability. Furthermore, there are in place sustainable initiatives for community engagement, social upliftment, environmental transformation, healthcare and sanitation, household income incrementation, self-reliance of women and more.Some programmes started include:

In 2008, Tata Motors had just launched the Nano in Singur and West Bengal in India. At the time, the West Bengal government controlled the land under the Land Acquisition Act of 1894, and helped the automobile company to acquire land post much interference as they wanted the Nano to be released in the state first. The organisation got backlash and was criticised for this. Another criticism that the company has received from its customers is the lack of foothold in the luxury car segment. The company has subsidiaries like Jaguar and Land Rover, but these were only successful in the initial year and now have greater operational costs, while the profits have fallen low. 

COVID-19 Impact

The growth of the company was definitely impacted by the subdued demand for new vehicles as the public faced economic slowdown, the low freight travel due to transport restrictions as well as various supply chain disruptions. But due to the sheer size of the company, the impact was not serious enough to stop the growth curve that Tata Motors is on. The company recovered quickly with the launch of the Altroz. 

Future Prospects

Tata Motors responded immediately with quick action to the pandemic by firstly implementing a temporary lock down for all its plants, factories and offices. They instituted big costs and put control on investments to conserve all their cash flow as much as they could. The sales have already been going up again, with a 51% increase in just July 2022. As a matter of fact, it has been awarded the safest automobiles company in the world and is on the verge of making many profitable bargains. A stakeholder, in an interview, even promised that the company will be absolutely debt-free by 2023, though that may be a stretch.


Did You Know!

What we bet you didn’t know is that Tata Motors is present in over 125 countries globally and launched the very first SUV into the market - the Sierra. Indica was India’s first indigenously built car. The company also built a car fitted with the entire playstation. They are also the backbone of the Indian army vehicles. They own a British launched luxury automobile brand - Jaguar Land Rover, but JLR is the main reason they have not gotten debt free yet. 

Initial Public Offering

The IPO of the organisation was released on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) on 3rd January, 2000, as well as listed on BSE and New York Stock Exchange, where the base Tata Motors share price was set at Rs. 38.64 per share. The enterprise is ranked at 287th largest corporation in the world by the 2014 Fortune Global 500 ranking of the biggest companies. In 2011, there was astock split by the company and 1 stock was split into 5 stocks. Since the IPO, in 22 years, the Tata Motors share price has driven up 58 times. So, for anyone who may have invested Rs. 1L in 2000, the share value would now be Rs. 58L. 

Equity Shares

Tata Motors equity shares are available on the NSE, BSE and New York Stock Exchange where they were listed in 2000. Since then, the share price has increased by 58 times. Recently, the company was credited with making and selling the safest automobiles in India, leading to a boom in sales. This has put the shares of the company on an all time high, with great returns and high yields. Just in the month of July, 2022, the sales went up by 51% while the share price rose by 7%. Another highlight is that the brand is promising investors that they will be a no-debt company by 2024, but the possibility is still questioned by investors due to the poor performance of Jaguar (JLR). In the latest report of June 2022, the company showed automotive debt levels at Rs. 60,700 crore which has in fact risen from March 2022, when it was Rs. 48,700 crores. The finance has been erratic for sure, but the company is set to set things right.
