1st October 2022, Mumbai: With the aim to responsibly own the environment we live in, and to build a better, greener and cleaner future for generations to come, Titan Company announces the launch of ‘Go Green’ initiative to plant 1lakh+ trees and traverse the journey of a greener India. To step up efforts towards this sustainable movement, Titan’s ‘Go Green’ initiative kick-started in a unique way through a Marathon Relay run with a collective pledge to plant trees along the route from Pantnagar to Bengaluru. The Titan ‘Go Green’ run flagged off from Pantnagar on 10th September and reached via Delhi, Jaipur, Azamgarh, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Vadodara to Mumbai on 1st October and is moving swiftly to the next destination.
Under the ‘Go Green’ umbrella initiative, Titan Company will be running a series of plantation drives, which will encourage employees and their families to plant trees in partnership with the NGO, ‘BiotaSoil Foundation’, Tata Motors and Tata Power.
Titan Company is highly committed to environment sustainability and has always made consistent effort towards making green living, a way of living. Titan has also extended this commitment to anyone from public to plant a tree and nurture its growth and thereby contribute to Titan’s sustained initiative. Titan urges volunteers to be a part of Titan’s ‘Go Green’ journey in three simple ways:
#1 Be a part of the tree plantation drive
#2 Sponsor one or more trees
#3 Take a pledge and make small significant changes
Titan has launched various sustainability initiatives since its inception, for instance:
- More than 62% of Energy requirements of Titan’s manufacturing comes from wind and solar.
- Titan’s CSR efforts have rejuvenated lakes, built check dams, planted thousands of trees across country and planted two Miyawaki forests at Hosur.
- It has rejuvenated a large lake in the vicinity of its corporate office, thus restoring the water body, also rejuvenated a smaller water body at Pantnagar.
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Ajoy Chawla, CEO, Jewelry Division, Titan Company Limited, said, ‘’Titan ‘Go Green’ is not just an initiative but a considerate step towards building nature conservancy. Through our unique restoration program, Titan aims at influencing a sustainable mind-set and evoke a feeling of responsibility through a collective pledge.
