Every institution can play a role in the shared global objective of sustainable development. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) provide a comprehensive framework for addressing the most pressing developmental issues faced globally. India has committed to contributing to these goals through the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) adopted by the Parliament in August 2022. The government has embarked on an agenda to improve the socio-economic-environmental parameters through a multi-pronged approach. Various policy measures and initiatives are getting aligned with the SDGs. We believe that over time every small step in the direction to meeting these goals can generate value for each individual, each organisation, the society and the nation, at large.

At ICICI Bank, we are playing our part in contributing to the NDCs and the UN SDGs through our business and corporate social responsibility activities. Our presence across the length and breadth of the country gives us the opportunity to bring about meaningful change and with long-term benefits. We remain committed to strengthening our efforts in meeting the goals of sustainable development and as we increase our participation in developmental initiatives, our endeavour is to ensure that it balances the needs of people, environment and society.
