Club Enerji, Tata Power's nationwide movement, has been relentlessly working towards spreading the message of being responsible citizens by conserving energy and resources across the country, with a strategic focus on nation building. In line with this commitment, Tata Power Club Enerji organsied an awareness rally on Disaster Management with Patuck high school, Santacruz East, Mumbai. Around 150 students and teachers participated in the rally, sensitising about 1000 citizens.
The objective of this initiative was to educate a larger audience on the possible emergencies at times of crisis, and the different ways to tackle them. India has been traditionally vulnerable to natural disasters on account of its unique geo-climatic conditions. About 60 per cent of the landmass is prone to earthquakes, over 40 million hectares is prone to floods, about 8 per cent of the total area is prone to cyclones and 68 per cent of the area is susceptible to drought.
Speaking about this initiative, Mr. Anil Sardana, CEO & MD, Tata Power, said, "Tata Power's Club Enerji is not just a project or a cause, but it is a movement that will help us shape the minds of our younger generations to be sustainable individuals and enable them to make wise decisions This awareness rally will help the masses to understand the concept of climate change and sensitise them on importance of disaster management. We offer our heart-felt gratitude to Patuck high school, Mumbai, and everyone associated with this rally for their cooperation and willingness to participate".
Tata Power Club Enerji last year launched a new online module devised on disaster management. The module is hosted on the Club Enerji website - www.clubenerji.com. The initiative has been contributing extensively towards a brighter and greener tomorrow by undertaking several successful initiatives. The savings of 17.26 MU of electricity is equivalent to saving 17,200 tonne of CO2 for a year. Tata Power's Club Enerji has won numerous accolades and has been recognised as a best practice in forums like Learning Mission by the Tata group. A case study has also been done by IIM Ahmedabad on the programme. Further, it has also won the gold at the ABCI awards in the category ‘best communication material' and bronze for its resource conservation module. Also, Asia Pacific Enterprise Leadership Awards, Singapore, has conferred ‘APELA 2012 - Eco Advocate Award' to Club Enerji.
