One crore has been donated by the Renault-Nissan alliance to the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s public relief fund to help in the relief and rehabilitation efforts. Various entities of the alliance are also working with the local NGOs to provide disaster relief, as well as allocate funds raised through their employee contributions. This contribution will complement the efforts of the state government in providing relief to the flood victims.
Additionally, a sum of five lakh has already been donated to the office of the Joint Director of industrial health and safety to help in procuring relief materials in Tambaram and Kancheepuram districts, which are closest to the Renault-Nissan Alliance factory.
Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan alliance, said, “We offer our deepest sympathy to those who have been affected by the worst floods in decades and express our admiration for citizens of Chennai, who have shown great resilience in these tough times. The Renault-Nissan Alliance has strong roots in Chennai and we will assist in all possible ways to restore normalcy including our employees and suppliers.”
Meanwhile, the Renault Nissan alliance has also set up a separate employee relief fund to support employees who have suffered losses.
