Tata Power's nationwide energy conservation programme, Club Enerji, has constantly endeavored to propagate the critical need to conserve energy and our natural resources across the country through students from various schools. In continuance with this dedication, Mini Club Enerji of Tata Power across the nation today celebrated World Car Free Day to spread awareness on protection of the environment.
Students of Club Enerji participated in energy conservation rallies and enthusiastically chanted slogans such as 'Save fuel, Save the Earth', carried handmade posters and banners, and placards with paintings depicting various ways to conserve the environment and reduce the use of fossil fuels such as petrol and diesel. The students motivated pedestrians and people at traffic signals to celebrate "World Car Free Day" and minimize the use of private vehicles to reduce environment pollution. Club Enerji students also adopted sustainable practices and commuted to school by cycles and public transportation.
In Mumbai, more than 50 students from Pawar Public School, Kandivali (W) participated in the rally and spread the message on energy and resource conservation by encouraging motorists to give up their cars for a day.
Speaking on the initiative, Mr. Anil Sardana, Managing Director and CEO, Tata Power stated, "Tata Power has always been committed to the cause of saving energy and propagated resource conservation practices since its inception. Today, being World Car Free Day gives us the opportunity to take cognizance and actively contribute to the betterment of the environment. If each member of India's population which is nearly 1.3 billion adopts a single sustainable practice in their day to day life, we can make a huge impact on our carbon footprint! Tata Power's Club Enerji' students have been instrumental in this mission of creating awareness across the nation. We appreciate the active participation from the students, teachers and the principal for extending their support to this initiative."
