We have evolved from being a textiles and polyester company to an integrated player across energy, materials, retail, entertainment and digital services. In each of these areas, we are committed to innovation-led, exponential growth. Our vision has pushed us to achieve global leadership in many of our businesses.
Reliance's products and services portfolio touches almost all Indians on a daily basis, across economic and social spectrums. We are now focussed on building platforms that will herald the Fourth Industrial Revolution and will create opportunities and avenues for India and all its citizens to realise their true potential.

Reliance’s backward integration journey continues. The Hazira plant coming on stream in 1991 laid the foundation for Reliance becoming the world’s largest integrated producer of polyester.
In 2000, Reliance commissions the world's largest grassroots refinery in a record 36 months: the Jamnagar petrochemicals and integrated refinery complex.

Reliance’s endeavour to create a culture of safety, health and environment saw a new light with the implementation of Change Agents for Safety, Health and workplace Environment (CASHe). This project has garnered enough strength to make safety and health a priority in the workplace, and improved occupational safety and health significantly. Reliance’s HSE Management System has established company-wide safety management objectives and processes for improving operational discipline and evolving inherent safety measures for plant operation. In addition, the Central HSE audit programme — a critical component of the HSE governance process — is designed to ensure that the HSE Management Standards are implemented, and best practices followed and shared across the Reliance Group.
