Environmental Social & Governance
We are dedicated to working with our people, clients, partners, and communities to build a more equitable, sustainable and healthier world through the application of technology and engineering.
The ESG journey is a continuous and evolving process. There cannot be a hard stop or final destination. Instead our journey towards excellence is monitored and measured through our goals which is represented as our ESG roadmap. Our objective is to continue inspiring our internal and external stakeholders.
Anand Deshpande, Founder, Chairman and Managing Director
Ever since our inception, we have been committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics and integrity, and we believe that we must be socially responsible and accountable for our actions.
Global challenges around pollution, climate change and demographic polarization lead to inequitable distribution of food, water, healthcare, data security and privacy. In addition to being conscious and responsible, we must work together to find innovative technology solutions to address these global challenges. The society needs companies to act responsibly and solve these problems in our lifetime. We commit to doing our part.
This ESG Report provides a consolidate overview of our activities as a responsible corporate citizen in our sustainability journey. We believe that this report will encourage us to reflect, challenge us to find innovative solutions and inspire us to do more.
