India is a strategic market for ISS Group and a major player in the Asia Pacific region with immense growth potential, said Jacob Aarup-Andersen, Group CEO of ISS A/S.
"We are committed to making a meaningful impact in India by focusing on innovation, sustainability, and skilling, which are critical to achieving our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals. Our growth strategy and new milestones in India are centred around these key areas, and we are excited about the opportunities for growth and impact in the region.
Elaborating on the group’s vision, Aksh Rohatgi, CEO and Country Manager, ISS India said, “Our goal of doubling revenue in the country by 2025 is more than just a financial target; it is an expression of our commitment to sustainable growth that is aligned with the growth story of India as it marches towards being a USD 5 trillion economy by 2025-26. As a dynamic company with a wide-ranging impact, our growth strategy has to be meaningful; hence, it revolves around the pillars of innovation, sustainability and skilling. We are integrating sustainability as a core service across all our offerings and within our organization. This is not only key to achieving our revenue goals but also our ESG objectives."
“With more than 50 technological innovations, our new office is the first of its kind workplace: a completely new experience for the Indian workforce. Our new education policy is another significant step toward our nation-building efforts. We look forward to many more initiatives in the future”, added Rohatgi.
ISS also believes that the Green Strategic Partnership between Denmark and India is crucial in developing solutions to mitigate and adapt to climate change and tackling environmental challenges, especially water and energy-related issues. The two countries with ambitious climate goals are demonstrating to the world that delivering ambitious climate and sustainable energy goals is possible. ISS’s recent MoU with TATA Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL) is a step forward in its sustainability mission and will help ISS guide its clients toward a more sustainable future and provide them with access to smart, eco-friendly solutions.
ISS India’s new office space is a testament to the company’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and creating a more sustainable future. The new office building is designed to meet the highest (best) energy efficiency standards and features a range of cutting-edge technologies and systems that minimize its environmental impact.
