Darode-Jog Properties is a responsible corporate citizen. We believe that apart from generating a great customer patronage, giving back through social initiatives is essential to being a good corporate citizen. Our Social Initiative practices are strongly integrated into our culture and business and fall into four key areas: environment and ecology, art and culture, educational enrichment, and society welfare.
ENVIRONMENT & ECOLOGY
We work towards building an environment friendly organization. From small initiatives like energy conservation, discourage use of plastic bags, reusing and recycling used papers, we also undertake large-scale initiatives like rainwater harvesting and tree plantation. Starting from the basics, we have provided a green campus as a built-in feature in all our residential projects. We have planted number of trees in and around the projects campus not merely for decorative purposes but also to provide an environment with clean air to our customers and the society. We have also taken efforts to green the open spaces in and around our projects at Pune.

Darode-Jog Properties is pro-actively practicing environment and ecology principles to make our projects truly eco-friendly. We have drafted out some basic principles for practicing eco-housing wherever possible.
1. Site planning and impact on biodiversity
  • Plan for basic amenities within walking distance of housing. This would reduce    the use of private transportation.
  • Develop site layout based on solar geometry and wind pattern.
  • Provide site lighting through efficient and renewable energy technologies.
2. Environmental architecture
  • Perform solar path analysis to arrive at optimum orientation, distance from adjacent building, size of shading device
  • Size windows and openings for ventilation and day lighting.
3. Energy-efficient systems and use of renewable energy technologies
  • Design for lighting system.
  • Provide prewired CFL (compact fluorescent light) fixtures in houses.
  • Use solar water heating system for households.
  • Use solar PV powered lighting for common areas/street lights, signages.
  • Use energy-efficient lifts and pumps.
4. Eco-friendly construction practices and materials
  • Minimum use of wood as a natural material for interior works.
  • Use of paints, adhesives, and sealants that have low VOC (volatile organic    carbon) contents.
5. Water conservation
  • Reduce water requirement for landscaping by use of efficient landscape practices.
  • Use rainwater harvesting for aquifer recharge and various landscape applications.
6. Waste water and solid waste management
  • Treat and dispose entire waste water generated on-site.
  • Reuse treated water for building applications.
  • Provide decentralized system or recycling centre for disposal.
Apart for all, Darode-Jog also uses its corporate calendar for a social message. Apart from using calendars merely as a business promotion tool, we have been addressing various issues of social concern. Keeping up this tradition, Darode-Jog Properties had presented the thought provoking compilation on the subject of wildlife conservation where we had invited twelve wildlife researchers / professionals / experts from across India to present their views.
ART & CULTURE
Pune is a cultural capital of Maharashtra. Darode-Jog has been supporting various cultural activities, art exhibitions, youth cultural events and literature based activities.  We have sponsored various sport competitions, live music and dance concerts, Pulotsav-03 & 04 (A 15-day cultural festival as a tribute to P. L. Deshpande, the great Marathi laureate), Entertainment shows for AIDS patients.
SOCIETY WELFARE
The company has lent a helping hand to various hospitals, educational institutes, NGOs, Public charitable trusts by providing both financial resources and volunteer services. We have been associated with organizations like `Sarhad’, an organization working for the rehabilitation of Kashmiri children.
EDUCATIONAL ENRICHMENT
We have been providing financial assistance to low-income-group students from primary to higher education. As on date, the Company has also provided assistance towards construction of school buildings in and around Pune. The Company also provided Merit Scholarships to students who excel in their 10th and 12th Board exams from schools in rural Maharashtra. We have also motivated some of the graduates by providing employment and hands-on experience which makes them confident and independent.
We have been supporting various educational enrichment events like ‘Buddhibal Jallosh’, a unique chess tournament where a thousand players simultaneously play the mind twisting game. The game helps develop mental faculties like memory power, self confidence, patience and concentration.
