We care for the future
The RMZ Foundation story is one of perseverance and joy, hope and triumph. Much like the first chapter in a novel, our first five years have been all about setting the direction. We’ve empowered communities through social housing, installed pivotal pieces of public art, enabled some of India’s brightest young achievers and innovated solutions that have changed the way our communities live and interact. Through our three pillars of change – Art, Sustainability and Innovation- the Foundation seeks to promote the well-being of humanity. Our aim is to create equitable, inclusive growth and build resilient communities. Our intiatives in art, which are a part of our efforts to build creative thinking and sustainable development, offers the community powerful experiences with aesthetic transformational experiences and the urban environment. A resilient community is only possible after basic standards of shelter, primary healthcare and safety are met. Through our Social Housing initiative, we build homes for economically disadvantaged families. At the Social Impact Hub, we are creating a tech-enabled ecosystem to address burning social issues. At our Urban Innovation Hub, we foster innovation that will help transform our cities and communities. At its core, the Foundation is about creating real, transformative change.
MEET OUR TEAM
Mrs. Anu Menda
Managing Trustee, RMZ Foundation
"Progress is impossible without change; evolution, the foundation of life itself, is based on that concept. And looking at the world around us, it is quite clear that a change is imperative. With development turning a blind eye to consequences, a move towards a responsible and compassionate society has become the need of the hour.
Modern philanthropy is based on the belief that the focus of any effective change should be the underprivileged members of society; the victims of blind progress.
The time has now come for us to look ahead and sculpt new ideas to address the most pressing issues affecting the world we live in, ushering in an era of inclusive growth.
To create any significant impact, innovation is key, combined with a versatile approach, which presents a multi-faceted outlook, keeping in tune with the changing dynamics of a fast-paced world.
By systematizing the approach towards making a difference, RMZ Foundation has identified five core areas, through which we can accelerate change and give rise to an atmosphere of harmony and happiness for all."
Mr. Venugopal A.N

"One of human kind’s greatest challenges, during the course of this century, will be to ensure sustainable, just and balanced development. The needs of current and future generations cannot be met unless there is respect for natural systems and international standards protecting core social and environmental values.
As a responsible corporate citizen, RMZ Corp is consistently and rigorously incorporating principles of sustainability in all aspects of its business starting right from site selection, to maximizing the energy efficiency of the assets that we develop and manage.
We derive the core of RMZ's sustainability philosophy from the broad framework developed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The Foundation’s priorities are centred on the three pillars of Environmental, Economical and Social impact.
To deliver excellence in sustainability, the foundation is being supported by key employees who have been identified as the sustainability leaders to drive the initiatives, being the change agents and help drive the shared value for the stakeholders of RMZ."
