Whilst having a sustainable and strong global presence is imperative to our business, we firmly believe that as one of the privileged few who have the fundamentals to shape a better future for our society, it is our responsibility to make the world a happier and healthier place.
Since inception, our approach has been to engage in selfless service and drive our company with a true sense of purpose. Our CSR vision is to support Indian villages to not only prosper but establish themselves as self-sustaining livelihood clusters, whose models can be replicated in other rural and underdeveloped areas for their upliftment. We work closely with district and state-level officials to expand understanding and support for our initiatives.
The Lupin Human Welfare and Research Foundation (LHWRF), the CSR entity of Lupin Limited, was founded in 1988 in Bharatpur, Rajasthan to engage with local communities to address their concerns and identify synergistic opportunities for livelihood creation.
LHWRF has a presence in 5,431 villages located in 88 blocks of 23 districts spread across 9 states in India. The Foundation operates through 20 local centers and actively works towards fostering an economic ecosystem that enables the upliftment of the underprivileged.

Healthcare professionals, especially doctors in India, are often at the receiving end of unfair litigation. ‘LegalRx’ is a mobile application designed by Lupin to provide free of cost medico-legal advice and counsel to doctors in addition to educating them on the legal aspects associated with their medical practice. The app is intended to simplify the medicolegal parlance for doctors and provide them with relevant information through FAQs on laws and acts governing the medical practice.
At Lupin, our aim is to provide affordable and accessible healthcare. However, increasing awareness of management of healthcare and the importance of well-being is also a priority for us. We encourage our leadership and employees across our facilities to drive and participate in initiatives, which are aimed at spreading cognizance to enhance the quality of life.
