A deep conviction to create an impact in the environment sector, steadfast encouragement from family & friends and a few coffee shop meetings was all it took Anand and Manish to start Envint. They derive their inspiration from India’s innate wisdom on sustainable living, that is in harmony with nature and its creations.
Envint was founded with a purpose to shape a more liveable planet for the coming generations. Our mission is to drive sustainability into mainstream thought and action, with the belief that ‘green makes sense beyond conscience’.
Envint is a portmanteau of ‘environment’ and ‘intelligence’ and an anagram of ‘invent’, reflecting a new approach to business. Initially conceived to provide intelligence for the environment sector, Envint has broadened its ambit to include the wider sustainability domain. We believe that by embedding environmental, social and governance principles in their core strategies, businesses can not only do good for the world, but also earn better financial returns.
We are a group of engineers, economists, accountants & management graduates who come from diverse backgrounds.
We strongly believe that it makes sense to be sustainable & responsible. All of us are on a shared journey to make businesses bring about change for the better.
