Club Enerji, Tata Power's nationwide movement, has been ceaselessly working towards spreading the message of being responsible citizens by conservation of energy & resources across the country, with a strategic focus on nation building. In line with this commitment, Club Enerji today orgainsed an Awareness Drive at the Gateway of India to create social awareness about the dangers posed to public health due to increasing rate of water pollution in the city.
Approximate 90 students aged 7-8 years participated in the awareness programme sensitising more than 900 people. The drive included a riveting street play performance, followed by a puppet show on a ferry around the Gateway of India. The objective of this initiative was to educate the public at large about the risks associated with water pollution and consequent health hazards it poses, along with encouraging children to become socially responsible citizens of the country.
Speaking on this initiative, Mr. Anil Sardana, MD & CEO, Tata Power, said, “As a part of our 100 year celebration, we have devised programmes that not only focuses on energy conservation but also on resource conservation and moral and civic values, through which we aim to contribute towards nation building. Water Pollution has become an area for concern and through this awareness drive at the historical Gateway of India, we hope people understand their social responsibilities and work towards curbing the same. We would like to thank the students and management of various schools for participating and extending their support to this initiative.”
The Club Enerji initiative has been contributing extensively towards a brighter and greener tomorrow by undertaking several successful initiatives. The savings of 14.2 MUs of electricity is equivalent to saving 14,200 tonnes of CO2 and is enough to light up over 6,943 houses 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; Asia Pacific Enterprise Leadership Awards (APELA), Singapore, has conferred ‘APELA 2012' - Eco Advocate Award' to Club Enerji.
