Wienerberger India, a subsidiary of Wienerberger AG - the world leaders in building material solutions, has been operating in India since last one decade, providing high quality, green building products to the Indian market. Apart from our core businesses, we consciously involve ourselves in contributing to the society and the environment through focused Community programs.

Principles: 
Wienerberger views the economy as an integral part of society that has the obligation to serve people and create value for all. Wienerberger takes its role as a responsible member of society very seriously. 

Healthcare & Community Development 

Wienerberger India focuses on Healthcare and Community Development as the two main priorities for the communities around our manufacturing unit at Kunigal, Karnataka, India.  Our key initiatives in CSR activities are facilitating regular Health Camps and managing a Primary Health Care Center located near our main production unit in Kunigal, Karnataka. We have also partnered with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) through activities and publications to enhance their quality and reach for uplifting children with disabilities.

Center for Rural Health Care
One of our core CSR focus is to strengthen primary health care, which includes preventive, promotive, curative and rehabilitative services; ensuring that these services are physically accessible and financially affordable, besides being culturally sensitive.  Timely availability of services to local communities is the key premise of this activity.  Through right partnerships (with local NGOs- M/s Karuna Trust) we have set up a Public Health Centre in Gottikere Village adjoining the Wienerberger Plant.

Highlights and some key contributions include:
Availability of Qualified Medical Doctor and Qualified Nurses
Free medical consultations - General health check-ups and free medicine distribution
Health Awareness Programs  

Wienerberger’s Free Medical Camp at Kunigal, near our Plant
Through our Annual Medical Camps at different locations, so far we reached out to 5,000+ people through these camps. The company strives to take up causes that need attention and facilitates actions through these CSR initiatives. 

These full-day camps see patients of various age groups with ailments ranging from diabetes, heart issues, gynecological disorders, skin and ENT issues, ophthalmological problems and dental problems. Patients are examined by respective specialists and are provided free consultation and prescription drugs. Special attention is given to children – through pediatricians in these camps.
