We grow because we work together. In our factories, offices, projects and within our communities we stand alongside each other and together, we benefit. Our mission ‘touching life everyday’ began a decade ago and like the beanstalk in our logo, our journey has been one of continuous and robust growth and expansion! The Chaudhary Group (CG) has come a long way since our humble beginnings. Today, we stand as a multi-industrial, transnational conglomerate spanning five continents. CG is now a leading entity with various companies in Finance, Banking, Insurance, Fast Moving Consumer Goods, Electronics & Home Appliances, Real Estate, Education, Energy, Education, Biotech, Cement and the Hospitality industries. The vast range of our companies, products and services are all inspired by our efforts to touch lives, to support lives everyday, offering the comforts, convenience and the assurance of quality. At Chaudhary Group, social responsibility is an integral part of the way we do business. To build a nation, we believe in supporting the communities in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. This translates into the group’s Triple Bottom Line - we strive to be socially responsible, environmentally sound and economically viable. A humble history of our governance ethics, employee policies and community involvement bear testimony to the roots of our fledgling awareness and modest contributions. Certainly, our commitment has grown with us and now we have a CG Foundation in place, responsible to keep alive the spirit of generosity accompanied by the discreet utilization of available resources. The information in this brochure is a reminder we still have “many miles to go and many promises to keep” as we work to gift to the next generation, a planet and society, safe and sustainable!
