How Rajiv is building a better working world

“Through the work we do with clients, EY contributes significantly to India’s growth and development in infrastructure, employment generation, skilling and e-governance.

To create a lasting impact on our local communities, we established the EY India Foundation in 2004. Over 10,000 students from underprivileged backgrounds have benefited from our Student Scholarship program and are employed with leading organisations. Our women entrepreneurship initiatives are helping increase income for more than 175,000 rural families in 2,000 villages. As part of our pledge to be carbon and water neutral, we have planted over 1 million trees, installed solar panels, smart lighting solutions and adopted water conservation systems at our office locations.

I am proud that each year our people enthusiastically volunteer their time and resources to support our community initiatives.”
