Driving change through our people
Siddharth Sarawgi – Bengaluru
"I am proud to be a part of EY. The tree plantation drive was as amazing as it could have been! We tried to give back a little of what we get from nature. The plantation drive was carried out in association with a local NGO, which also helped us understand the whole process of planting a sapling. With a rapidly deteriorating environment, the need for such focused and targeted actions is all the more necessary. It was a safe, comfortable and memorable experience for us!"
Dinesh Kumar – Chennai
“The ‘beach cleaning drive’ was a reality check for me. The initiative gave me an opportunity to look into the other side of Marina Beach (in Chennai). It helped me recognize the harmful impact that plastic and other non-degradable items have on the ecosystem and gave me an opportunity to do my bit for the environment.”
Rohit V. Nahar – Bengaluru
“The best thing about blood donation is that you gain more (satisfaction) than what you give (blood). I like this particular CSR initiative as it allows me to donate blood in a comfortable and hygienic environment, without the need to travel.”
