CG Values & Business Practices
Our philosophy is enshrined through the
various facets of Governance.
Our documented Values & Code of Business Practices are a reflection of the socially and environmentally responsible company we aspire to be; a company which conducts its business with integrity. They are the foundation for every business decision we make.
Values are the core of any sustainable Organization and the driving force for its people at all levels. The ideology for CG's businesses emanates from its 5 Values of Performance Excellence; Leading Edge Knowledge; Nurturance; Customer Orientation and Intellectual Honesty. These Values articulate the basic behaviours that every employee is expected to display in business situations and these form the core principles for all actions.
CG thrusts upon each employee to be aware of and practice the CG Values, and behave in accordance with the letter as well as the spirit of CG Values.
Reviewing and raising the team's performance threshold for competitive edge; setting and meeting stretch targets; accomplishing and exceeding performance commitments.
Enhancing capabilities, actively pursuin gand applying Best Practices, continuously upgrading and benchmarking with Best In Class. It is the key to working smart.
Sensitivity and responsiveness to the market and customer needs for high quality existing as well as new products and services, with deliveries and after-sales service as committed.
Honesty to self; doing what we say, making and meeting meaningful commitments. It goes beyond simplistic integrity, financial honesty, telling the truth.
Nurturance is helping ouselves and others to grow in professional and personal life. It encourages an atmosphere of fairness with participation and a climate of trust as well as trustworthiness, a positive environment for CG to become a learning organization for connection between CG and its employees.
The CG Code of Business Practices has been conceptualized considering CG`s multi segment and transnational culture, as well as the need to respect the cultures of all companies in the CG fold. The Code strives to provide guiding principles in various business situations and is the lighthouse for decision making and actions, with integrity and discipline. This Code also aims to minimize adverse consequences due to ambiguity, for CG and every employee.
CG has a robust business review framework, to monitor the ultimate direction and implementation of the Company`s business strategies and plans.
Periodically, each business presents its strategic road map at specially constituted Board meetings. Approved initiatives form a part of the growth and business strategy of the Divisions. The performance of the businesses is reviewed at monthly meetings, through a monthly review by the Managing Director with the Management team. Operational Issues and budgets are extensively monitored through an elaborate Management Information System, with adequate focus on non-financial business enablers including process improvements and customer service.
Corporate Initiatives :
CG is poised to scale even greater heights and has set challenging targets in its quest to be a leading player in the global market, to ensure a sustainable future for all its stakeholders. The plans and targets cover all the key areas that CG wishes to excel in : Growth, Productivity, Technology and People. In order to achieve these, CG has instituted various performance improvement and measurement systems. Several critical business enablers are driven on a company - wide basis as corporate drives.
Some of these Corporate initiatives are CG Productivity System (CGPS), Six Sigma (for "quality as perceived by the customer"), CG Mile, Business Excellence, CSR, etc.
A separate monitoring framework has been established for a more focused review of these enablers with senior management participation. This dedicated approach has enabled the Company to exceed 133% CGPS productivity norms at all its India locations and enhance its process and supplier quality through six sigma standards.
CG believes that its Management is accountable to its shareholders, for creating, protecting and enhancing their shareholder value, and reporting to them on the Company's performance in a timely and transparent manner.
CG believes that its Management is accountable to its shareholders, for creating, protecting and enhancing their shareholder value, and reporting to them on the Company's performance and developments on the performance in a timely and transparent manner. All our systems institutionalize our belief that Corporate Governance protects the interest of all stakeholders by inculcating in all our operations and processes, the principles of transparency, integrity, professionalism and accountability.
It starts at the top with the Board of Directors comprising eminent professionals, as Independent Directors, who provide high quality, impartial advice to the Chairman, Managing Director and the various Committees of the Board. The Chairman of the Board is a non-Executive Director providing the necessary independence to the management to chart its growth strategy and promote operational excellence. Espousing the philosophy of going beyond Regulatory requirements, the number of Independent Directors on the Board far exceeds the proportion required between Independent and Non-Independent directors, prescribed by the Listing Agreement with the Stock Exchanges.
The above ideology is also well reflected through best-in-class business practices and adoption of high level ethical standards in all its business dealings. CG encourages Management independence and provides individual flexibility within an established framework of policies, standards and processes, which for clarity, are amplified in its "Rules of Procedure for Management" through which decision-making levels, with respect to the areas of importance in CG`s day-to-day operations within India, are documented.
As CG`s foreign locations progressively get integrated with CG India, the best practices of governance get progressively extended to these locations as well. To better achieve its high Governance standards at its foreign locations as well, CG has articulated "Transnational Governance Guidelines", with a view to creating a common platform for Board practices across the Company`s subsidiaries and joint ventures, and introduce an effective governance framework. These Guidelines outline comprehensive integrated approach towards Governance, which includes creation of an Authority-Responsibility Matrix for Management; Compliance Certifications; Board Compositions, Procedures, Information Flow, and Reporting Formats for Board Reviews, across the Group.
Needless to say, the core CG Values and Code of Business Practices are applicable at all locations across the world.
