Gautam Adani is the founder and Chairman of the Adani Group, a leading diverse conglomerate in India. It is constituted of 6 publicly traded entities with a market cap of $75 billion (as on 17th Feb 2021) with primary interests in energy, ports & logistics and mining. In each of its sectors, it is the largest in India.
Mr. Adani, a first-generation entrepreneur, is driven by his core philosophy of infusing Growth with Goodness through nation-building. Each of the Group’s core businesses are focused on helping build world-class integrated infrastructure capabilities that India needs to accelerate its growth.
Nation-building, for Mr. Adani, means transforming the coastline of India by building a series of ports and related logistics hubs and in the process generate several tens of thousands of jobs. It means transforming the power scenario in India and mitigating the urban-rural divide by delivering electricity to several hundreds of millions living in the hinterlands of India. It means enabling food security by building a modern agriculture supply chain empowering the farmers of our country. It means to fulfill India’s objective and become one of the largest global players in sustainable energy by making the largest national commitment to the solar ecosystem and building an integrated manufacturing, generation, and solar park business.
Adani Foundation, the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility arm is among his key interest areas. Until March 2019, Adani Foundation’s pan-India initiatives across key sectors of education, healthcare, community infrastructure, and sustainable livelihood touched more than 3.5 Million direct and indirect beneficiaries in 2300 villages across 18 Indian states.
An educationist and a qualified doctor with Bachelors in Dental Surgery (BDS), Dr. Priti Adani has been treading a path hitherto less travelled in the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) space. Focusing on the mantra of Growth with Goodness, Dr. Adani is as much a businesswoman as she is a responsible citizen helping create sustainable solutions to complex problems.
She has been spearheading Adani Foundation, her brainchild, passionately for two decades now ensuring that the Adani Group helps transform the lives of as many people as possible.
Under her guidance and leadership, Adani Foundation has been carrying out its activities in four core areas namely, Education, Community Health, Sustainable Livelihood Development, and Infrastructure Development. At present, the Foundation is helping uplift 3.4 Million people annually across 18 states of the country.
