Environment sustainability is one of our key focus areas and we continuously provide our people with various opportunities to make a difference to the environment.
Our tree planting drives have been held in partnership with NGOs like Pan Himalayan Grassroots Development Foundation (PHGDF) and Srinivasan Services Trust of the TVS group, and Himjoli in Chhatisgarh. The afforestation drives not only involve the local community and encouraging them to maintain the plantations but also prove to be educational for EY people who volunteer for these drives every year.
The plantation drives are one of the many initiatives we undertake towards the goal of achieving Carbon Neutrality. Water management, waste management, responsible recycling and numerous other consumption curbing exercises have become a part of our day-to-day lives.
Today, EY is reducing its environmental impact through small but impactful measures such as water aerators and bio blocks in washrooms. EY offices across the country are saving millions of liters of water through water-conservation systems. Installation of solar panels and smart lighting solutions is further helping save energy at all our locations.
