Corporate Social Responsibility at EY
A message from Chairman and Country Managing Partner
“As an organization, building a better working world is at the heart of who we are and everything we do. This desire extends beyond work to helping solve some of the daunting societal challenges our country faces today and making a meaningful contribution to the communities we serve. In the long term, we believe, amongst many other things, this is what gives soul and character to the organization and all its stakeholders.
More than a decade ago we set out to make a difference when we established the EY Foundation. It is heartening to see the progress we have made with the efforts of many people not only from EY but also from our partner organizations. However, this is still a drop in the ocean; the possibilities to positively impact human lives are innumerable.
Let’s work together in making real change to the lives of people that are around us. Be a part of this journey!”
Chairman and Country Managing Partner – India Region
Our purpose is guided by the principles of sustainability, replicability, and scalability as we collaborate with our NGO partners to build a better working world for our communities. As we actively work on projects across the pillars of education, entrepreneurship, and environment, we envision creating an ecosystem that equips our communities to become self-sustainable. Therefore, making people even more self-reliant and active contributors than just recipients.
