FIIB - Working Towards Reducing Carbon Footprint
FIIB, a unique and responsible business school that is measuring its carbon footprint, conducted the 9th edition of Sustainability Summit recently. The institute since its inception focused on delivering future-ready leaders who help businesses name their pain and cultivate potential solutions to accelerate the success rate. About 7 years ago, the B-School dove deep into their core values and questioned themselves “What it means to be a truly sustainable organisation?”, and realized the utmost need of embracing sustainability as a key pillar of FIIBs culture and brand. In the belief of a better, brighter, and sustainable tomorrow for every student, FIIB pledged to repurpose their terms and introduced their three-fold Campus Sustainability Goals: Meaningful Academic Activities, Environment-friendly Operations, and Purposeful Community. The theme of this year’s Sustainability Summit was “The Choice of Sustainability – Is it the Game of a few?”
The Founder of the institute, Late R K Shrivastava strongly believed in improving lives and transforming the career of passionate students through sustainable choices. Following his values and visions, FIIB further extends its continuous commitment to his dream - “Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and the world better than you found it.”
In the wake of this commitment, FIIB on the occasion of its 25th birthday showcased their very first Annual Sustainability Report 2019, which tells the story of their programs, initiatives, and progress towards the three-fold Campus Sustainability Goals.
Areas where FIIB has performed well
While sharing the areas we conquered admirably, we also focus on those areas where we have room for improvement. At FIIB, we always thrive for better results and find immense pride in generating solutions that add sustainability to our students growth and environment’s green future. During the release of Annual Sustainability Report 2019, Ms Radhika Shrivastava, Executive Director, FIIB said that "Our work is not done, but as you can see we have certainly made some telling strides in the direction. Our success in this area depends in large part on cooperation and commitment from our staff –both Teaching and NonTeaching and to a large part on our students. I use this opportunity to remind all FIIB constituents of our pledge." To read more about FIIBs Annual Sustainability Report 2019, click here.
