Inspired by the role of Tata Sons and its parent company, Tata Motors Design Tech Centre has sought since its creation in 2005 to develop a foundation for good corporate governance, a sense of responsibility towards its employees and the communities that surround its workplace, both in India and in the UK, and a significant commitment to the environment, particularly in helping Tata Motors deliver its commitment to reducing pollution from its vehicles and addressing the challenge of climate change through the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Tata Motors Design Tech Centre, in common with other Tata companies in the UK, recognises its responsibility to deliver corporate sustainability to its employees and to the business environment in which it operates, including its stakeholders, partners, affiliated companies and suppliers. The Design Tech Centre has cherished the Tata tradition of corporate sustainability by endeavouring to work in the Tata way Whether it is trying to maximise the job satisfaction and general wellbeing of its employees, its relationship with key partners and affiliates, such as the Warwick Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick and Jaguar Land Rover, the numerous suppliers, some of whom have evolved and developed since the Design Tech centre has established itself as a serious engineering company in the West Midlands, or its relationship with local and central government bodies, such as the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce and Innovate UK, the Tech centre has taken its responsibilities seriously and thoughtfully and nurtured a win-win approach to all its business dealings.
