Message from Chairman, Mahindra Group
Today’s consumers are well informed and deeply concerned about environmental and social issues, present and probable. They are keen to play their part. This gives businesses, a responsibility as well as an opportunity to provide consumers with options that are true alternatives.
Businesses need to create and propagate products and services, that along with being sustainable, are affordable and easily available. At Mahindra, our endeavour is to empower people to Rise, by bringing true alternatives to the market, enabling consumers to make the conscientious choices that they so desire to make.
For every product, process and possibility, we practice what we call ‘Alternativism’ – a commitment to think and act differently, to develop true alternative solutions that align to a larger truth about the environment, society and consumer behaviour.

“Sustainability is a part of our ‘Rise’ philosophy. You cannot Rise if you take more from the community than you put back”. A quote the Group Chairman Mr. Anand Mahindra states our intentions and united efforts for maintaining the balance of life cycle in invigorating demeanour.
