ICAI Invites EOI for Suggestions on Reducing Carbon Footprints

The second-largest professional organization of chartered accountants in the world, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), has a long history of serving the Indian economy in the public. The ICAI established the Sustainability Reporting Standards Board (SRSB) in February 2020 as one of the stages toward cooperating in nation-building, with the goal of mainstreaming sustainability reporting and thinking into business operations in both the public and private sectors. Since its formation, the Board has undertaken a number of activities and is steadfastly working to contribute to the realisation of the worldwide demand for sustainability by raising awareness and putting sustainability-improving measures into action.
