Preserving nature and transforming lives through sustainable practices

We believe in caring for nature that nurtures us. At ICICI Bank, we endeavour to celebrate the infinite wonders of nature and supports various initiatives to help create a sustainable ecosystem.

The Bank has funded an array of eco-friendly projects across the country to help restore ecological balance. We strive to uphold the principles of sustainability in every way we can. From tree plantation drives to the solar electrification of villages, Public Health Centres and the Bank’s branches across India; we leave no stone unturned in trying to build a sustainable future for our planet. ICICI Bank has also been encouraging its employees to contribute to its green initiatives for a wider reach and a much larger impact.

Lighting up villages and lives with solar power
ICICI Bank has partnered with local NGOs in Maharashtra with the aim of electrification of villages and Public Health Centres in remote regions of the state.
Jawhar Tehsil was in darkness until ICICI Bank assisted in the solar electrification of 7 villages in the tehsil. The Bank transformed lives of residents of over 190 households across these 7 villages.
In Nandurbar district, Public Health Centres (PHCs) could not function properly due to lack of electricity. ICICI Bank helped in the electrification 11 PHCs using solar power. This has significantly improved access to health care services for the rural and tribal populations of the district.
Sowing the seeds for a greener future sapling by sapling
There is no growth without preservation. ICICI Bank led a tree plantation drive in Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra with support from the government and the local NGOs. The drive was aimed at benefitting the local tribal communities. With a grant assistance of Rs. 7 million for planting 170,000 trees; ICICI Bank endeavoured to enhance the green cover in these states. These trees are also expected to provide additional sources of livelihood to the locals of the region.
ICICI Bank is keen on making our cities green. We have sponsored a project for developing the vicinity of the Base Hospital in Delhi. The Bank undertook a tree plantation drive around the hospital which not only helped in improving the aesthetics of the hospital, but also helped in uplifting the mood of the patients and the staff.
Adding a ray of light with solar electrification of rural branches
At ICICI Bank, we believe in practicing what we preach. Many of the Bank’s Gramin and Semi-urban branches are located in small villages where power supply is limited or absent. This disrupts the smooth running of banking services and also affects customer convenience.
To ensure uninterrupted banking transactions at the Gramin branches, ICICI Bank has installed solar power facilities at 522 Gramin branches across 7 states of India. This initiative has also contributed to significant reduction of our carbon footprint.
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.
‘Go Green’ programme
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.
