Tata Power, India's largest integrated power company, has been a strong proponent of environment conservation. It has always remained committed to sustainable growth by protecting the environment through its various initiatives like 'Club Enerji' a nationwide movement that propagates environment conservation and green living practices through school children. Continuing with this commitment, Tata Power's Club Enerji organised a tree plantation drive with the help of students of Pawar Public School, Bhandup, at Rabale in Mumbai.
In recent years, Rabale has grown into one of the biggest industrial belts in Maharashtra. This has contributed to loss of trees and an increase in pollution. In order to reduce the effect of industrialization on nearby villages, the students of Pawar Public School Bhandup planted saplings as part of Tata Power Club Enerji's tree plantation drive in the area. As part of this initiative more than 30 Club Enerji students from Pawar Public school along with their teachers enthusiastically planted a total of more than 118 saplings of various species.
Speaking on the initiative, Mr. Ashok Sethi, COO and ED, Tata Power, said: "We, at Tata Power, have a strong focus on sustainability through environment conservation. Trees play a vital role, and are crucial for the general wellbeing of society. Trees are not only a source of oxygen, but also play a critical role in providing food and shelter to animals. Through tree plantation drives, we try to educate children as well as adults about preservation of nature. We offer our gratitude to the students and teachers of Pawar Public School for their wholehearted support in making this tree plantation drive a great success."
Tata Power's efforts of caring for the environment are not only restricted to tree plantation drives, but also extends to conservation of bio diversity and soil enrichment programs that it undertakes in a timely manner. Tata Power's Club Enerji in a short span of 10 years has grown to become a national movement that drives home the importance of conservation of nature and protection of biodiversity.
