The purpose of this project is to advance sustainability and enable professionals in corporate social responsibility (CSR) to become experts in negotiating the complexities of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) frameworks. 75 students will receive 100% scholarships under this initiative from HP India and IICA, allowing them to continue further ESG education without financial constraints.
