At a public event held in Trivandrum, Kerala, UST received recognition for its corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts in Kerala that have been implemented across a broad range of areas. The TMA Padosan CSR award was presented to UST by Arif Mohammed Khan, Governor of Kerala, on May 18, 2023, at the Trivandrum Management Association's annual TRIMA conference which was held at Hotel O by Tamara in Thiruvananthapuram.

UST is dedicated to supporting the areas in which it operates by taking part in CSR initiatives that are intended to have a significant social impact. At the global and national framework level, the UST CSR focus areas are aligned with UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and Schedule VII activities of (Corporate Social Responsibility Policy) Rules, 2014. The company's CSR policy and work focuses on education, health, environment, livelihood, and disaster relief.

UST Welfare Foundation follows the standard process for partnering with credible grassroot level non-profit organizations as implementation partners.

More than 20% of UST's 30,000+ global workforce is actively involved in CSR initiatives, directly enhancing the well-being of communities throughout the world. Special focus is given to inclusive community development and the empowerment of women and differently abled people.

One of the notable global initiatives from UST is the UST Step IT Up programme which has been celebrated for providing accelerated training to women, minorities, and veterans for positions in STEM fields. Additional programmes include efforts to accelerate sustainable living, provide education to the needy, provide assistance in the health sector, promote a greener earth and much more. In Kerala, UST has also successfully implemented programmes like 'Adopt a School' supporting over 4,200 students. UST's CSR strategy is shaped by its Office of Values & Culture (OVC), which is overseen by a Chief Values Officer (CVO). This dedicated team, along with thousands of volunteers, manages CSR campaigns that preserve, strengthen, and scale UST's values and culture.

"We are honoured to receive the TMA Padosan CSR award and look forward to continuing to deliver the great outcomes and service that our clients and community have come to expect.

During the pandemic, UST worked closely with governments, hospitals, relief workers and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) across the country to provide medical assistance across the country. UST donated over Rs 10 crore towards supporting COVID-19 relief work in India. The company also encouraged employee contributions to meet the increased demand for medical supplies in vulnerable communities, with UST matching the total amount raised by its associates.
