ITC's commitment beyond the market finds a strong expression in the Social and Farm forestry programmes spearheaded by the business. These programmes help create man hours of employment for the rural poor, besides being a sustainable source of high-quality raw material for the business. ITC's Research and Development efforts in creating disease resistant, high yielding seedlings help farmers realize greater yields in a shorter time - from land that may be otherwise unproductive. More than 6,86,000 acres (as on 31st March 2018) of planted area stands testimony to ITC's commitment to sustainable forestry.
