Our Vision

To unleash the potential of everyone we touch.

Our Goal

To be in the top two in all our businesses on the strength of our people and the speed of our innovation.

Our Values

integrity

Integrity

Wisdom is knowing which is the right path. Integrity is taking that right path. Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral values. It is our aptitude for doing what’s right and not what’s easy. We believe it is an opportunity to come out of our comfort zone and create a bridge of faith with those around us. We nurture a habitat where success is measured by conduct and individuals never stray from their line of duty.

Humility

Humility is the concern of what is right and not who is right. Perfection is impossible without humility. Humility is our ultimate strength. It is our willingness to follow, as much as our capacity to lead. It discovers the true measure of our own self and transforms us into being open towards learning and growing. Humility is the bliss of an equilibrium that lets us scale to the next level of greatness that is captured in a single word and summed up in one philosophy.

dbg values
trusting values

Trust & Respect

Trust takes years to build, seconds to break and forever to repair. Respect is earned, trust is gained.  The two together remind us of our unique worth, multiply our combined strength and the miracles that each of us are capable of.

Commitment

Motivation gets you started, Commitment is what keeps you going.
We believe commitment is power which transforms a promise into reality. It is the bond that glues us with our goals and helps us realise that success is never attained by accident. It makes us believe that where there’s a will, there’s always a way.

Committed

Sustainable growth has been a part of our ethos for years now which is a result of the four strong pillars of profitability, growth, sustainability, and reputation. Dalmia Bharat Group is a leading contributor to global sustainability efforts, through our philosophy of “Clean and Green is Profitable and Sustainable”.

As an organisation, we have always felt that to grow from good to great, we should always live by a certain set of values and live by a positive DNA. We are proud to say that we have stayed the course and built our organisation on a strong foundation of Indian values and culture which is reflected by our DNA.

To Learn: Learning Leads to Personal Growth

Be hungry and open to learn from anywhere & anyone. Never be afraid to say ‘I do not know’. Stay open to new ideas and learn new skills.

To Ideas: It is Ideas that Shape the World

Be open to ideas and encourage open discussions. Build an environment where everyone can share their ideas without fear. A good idea becomes a great idea when you let it out.

Dalmia DNA Open
Bold

In Belief: Be Fearless & Have No Self Imposed Limits

Believe in yourself & have conviction in your ideas. Step out of your comfort zone and be confident and secure in your abilities. It’s not what you are, that’s holding you back. It’s what you think you are not.

In Actions: Courage to Choose the Difficult Path

Have the courage to ask tough questions and express disagreements at times for the larger good. It’s crucial to stay brave in difficult situations and act as change agents to lead the team effectively.

In Letting Go: Let Go of What Does Not Serve the Bigger Purpose

You only have so much emotional energy and time everyday. Keep your eye on the goal. Choose your battles wisely because if you fight them all, you will be tired to win the really important ones.

Dalmia DNA Bold
Fast

In Decision: Timely Decisions Make Or Break an Organization

“Done” is better than “Perfect”. Use your judgment and discipline to prioritize and then proceed with speed. Effectiveness begins with elimination. Do fewer things and do them well. Remember the 80:20 rule. Adopt digital ways and tools to make a quick impact.

In Execution: A Decision Executed Completes the Strategy

Strategy without execution is a mere conversation. Quickly breathe life into the idea, support it with meticulous planning and close the task within deadline. Share the plan with complete clarity to the team and build wider ownership right at the beginning.

In Response: Your Response Time Decides Your Character

Think in hours and days, not weeks and months. Always remember, either you meet the timelines or you don’t. There is no “I tried my best”. Respect people’s time and never keep them waiting for your response. Respond without the need to be followed upon.

Collaborative

In Relationship: Relationships Are Built When You Proactively Reach Out

Connect Proactively. Reach out to people. Show that you care. It’s not about how experienced or knowledgeable you are, but more about how you take others along.

In Working: Work Becomes Experience When You Do It Together

Coming together is just a beginning. Staying together is progress. Working together is a success. And the most essential ingredient for this success is the ability to listen, in order to build a shared understanding.

In Solutions: Innovative Solutions Emerge When You Work Together

Remember if a challenge exists, so does the solution. Stay flexible to work on an idea, deliberate together and convert an idea into a solution collectively. When you collaborate, you can create magic.

Dalmia DNA Collaborative
Trusted

In Words: Your Words Reflect Your Thoughts

No relationship can survive without honesty and reliability, no matter what your title is. You should mean what you say & keep your promises. If you want to be trusted, you must be true to your word.

In Motives: If the Motive is Noble, It Will Lead to Greater Good

Without a noble motive and purpose, action has no meaning and lacks foundation. Act with stature and noble intent. Offer a compelling example that inspires others in a way that they emulate.

In Teams: Celebrate Wins & Acknowledge the Contribution of Others

It is by trusting in each other’s ability, sharing common goals, and giving credit that one transforms a group of people into a team. Without trust, teams don’t really collaborate; we merely coordinate or best cooperate.
