Spreading our green initiatives far and wide
As part of our relentless drive to protect the planet’s natural resources and promote sustainability, ICICI Bank has supported various ecological projects across the country. We have also undertaken many programmes which enable us to play a small part in helping create a greener future for our planet.
Green governance programme
ICICI Bank collaborated with the Indian Army from 2006 to 2011 to assist 25 resource conservation and biodiversity protection projects across the country. The Bank offered financial support to the Army in implementing these projects. The projects were aimed at enhancing biodiversity conservation measures across various establishments such as cantonments, depots, maneuver areas, military farms and command areas. They included wind energy generation, bio-gas plant construction, solid waste management and construction of water reservoirs across various parts of the country.
As a step towards building a greener future, ICICI Bank launched 'Go Green' - an organisation-wide initiative to reduce its own carbon footprint. The initiative covered energy conservation, water conservation and reduction of paper usage. With active participation from our employees, the Bank has reduced paper consumption by 33% over the past two years thereby saving over 13,000 trees.
