Development with responsibility
Sharing makes success sweeter.
Dhampur believes in being a responsible and caring corporate citizen. The Group not only contributes to the nations self sufficiency in power, fuel ethanol, chemicals and sugar, but also shares its success with society at large.
By providing employment to rural folk and sharing in the economic development of farmers and their families, Dhampur has provided a major impetus to the growth and development of the rural areas of India. It assists farmers in the areas of sowing, manure, and improved cane varieties through an intensive cane development program. Widening the scope of traditional farmer-factory relationship, Dhampur has been involved in providing crop knowledge, modern cultivation techniques, improved variety of seeds, better inputs for transportation and irrigation and social welfare activities for the rural community near the factories.
Caring for and preserving the environment has been a top priority. Dhampur has undertaken the task of extensive plantation in and around the factory complexes at various locations and so far the exercise has been fairly successful. The local population is also encouraged to undertake plantation drives.
Dhampur encourages use of renewable fuels, which not only save national resources but are also eco–friendly. The Group today has cogeneration facilities producing 145 MW of power from renewable resources, which do not contribute to Greenhouse gasses.
Dhampur strives to be a good corporate citizen. While the manufacturing activities contribute towards strengthening the rural fabric of the country, extension of these activities to include by-product utilization boosts rural development. This provides direct and indirect employment through sugarcane complexes as well as infrastructure development through trading activities and transportation.
It is Dhampur’s endeavor to improve the level of performance in sports in India as well as to provide budding talent in rural areas with international standard playing facilities. Dhampur is also actively involved in sponsoring various sporting events.

The Dhampur Group has educational facilities at its units. It has also established model schools near Dhampur and Asmoli. These schools not only provide quality education to the local population but also to students from surrounding areas.
We believe that quality education remains the bedrock for integrated social development. Conceptualized by the Dhampur Group, the Pushp Niketan School at the Dhampur Unit, has emerged as a unique model for imparting world class education to rural population. With a 1:30 teacher-student ratio, each child receives proper attention and care.
Dhampur has recently set up the Academy of Modern Learning with branches at Asmoli and Gunnaur. The schools are equipped with modern learning and sports facilities and encourage co-curricular activities to facilitate wholesome development.
