“Corporate social responsibility is rooted in our culture of caring at Wells Fargo, and it has been an important part our company’s growth and success for more than 160 years. We continuously work to make a difference in our workplaces as well as the communities in which we live. At Wells Fargo EGS India, we focus on supporting education for underprivileged children,” said Aveek Mukherjee, head of Wells Fargo EGS Delivery. “We also recognize the importance of having a workplace culture that promotes and supports healthy lifestyle choices by encouraging events such as the annual run/ride/walk event.”

Wells Fargo EGS India has an active community of runners and riders with more than 1,500 team members who regularly take part in running and riding events across the country. To facilitate and encourage cycling to work, Wells Fargo facilities in Hyderabad and Bengaluru have exclusive parking zones for bicycles.

Speaking at the Educathon event, Prakriti Panwar, head of corporate sustainability for Wells Fargo EGS India said, “We are committed to finding new ways to spread awareness to support the cause of education – one of our priority areas of community service. In addition, our volunteers consistently work to help educate underprivileged children by driving various efforts at schools supported by Wells Fargo EGS India.”

The 10K walk/run/ride is one among many examples of Wells Fargo’s commitment to environmental stewardship. While the company has successfully put into practice several ‘everyday’ green initiatives like switching off lights for an hour every week and double-side printing configuration on all printers, Wells Fargo volunteers also create awareness about greener living and participate in external initiatives that help the environment. Wells Fargo Centers in Hyderabad and Bengaluru are also LEED-certified sustainable sites with strict energy and resource management.
