At CSS Corp, we integrate CSR and Sustainability into our core business strategy and is designed to create

commitment to CSR & Sustainability. The senior management is also engaged in it.
While sustainability and CSR has been a part of the culture at CSS Corp,
it is only recently that we have taken a concerted decision to formalise our efforts to create lasting impact.
We have taken a long view to accelerate our efforts systematically over a 3-5 year horizon.
CSS Corp has planted 2500 tree saplings inside CRPF campus at Avadi, Chennai. CRPF enables the government of India to maintain Rule of Law, Public Order and Internal Security effectively and efficiently, to Preserve National Integrity and Promote Social Harmony and Development by upholding supremacy of the Constitution.
At CRPF, we adopted the “Miyawaki method” which is a unique technique to grow dense forests. Under the approach, dozens of native species are planted in the same area, close to each other, which ensures that the plants receive sunlight only from the top, and grow upwards than sideways.
Native trees from India, which are fruit bearing and pollinating were planted. These saplings once matured will increase our quality of life by bringing natural elements and wildlife habitats into urban settings. They also act as natural water reservoirs and help conserve and replenish ground water. For the event, 55 sapling varieties were chosen and 2500 saplings were planted.
To achieve this feat, 265 plus volunteers from CSS Corp & family members, CRPF Javans, NCC cadets and public were part of this plantation drive. Theses saplings will be maintained for next two years.

NSG is a federal contingency world class zero error force to deal with anti-terrorist activities in all its manifestations. This NSG base is mainly used to train elite commandos to counter terrorism.
The area for tree plantation in the NSG campus is a raised terrain. Miyawaki type plantation concept was adopted, over a period of time the saplings will grow in to a dense rain forests. Native trees from India, which are fruit bearing and pollinating were planted. These forests will serve as a natural habitat for animals with food and shade. They also act as natural water reservoirs and help conserve and replenish ground water. For the event, 12 sapling varieties were chosen and 1500 saplings were planted.
