What We Do

Sustainability as a concept has evolved to include environmental, social, financial, ethical, legal and political issues that can be both internal and external to the company. It drives companies to set goals and milestones to address specific issues.


Who we Work With

Recognizing the need for a 360 degree view on Sustainability, IAAD has set-up partnerships with institutions of repute, cutting across various thematic sectors such as technology, natural resource management, financing, policy & governance, research and capacity development, both within and outside India.
