Environmental Sustainability and Animal Welfare
Environmental sustainability involves making decisions and taking action that are in the interests of protecting the natural world, with particular emphasis on preserving the capability of the environment to support human life. It is an important topic at the present time, as people are realising the full impact that businesses and individuals can have on the environment.
To achieve the goal is to work towards:
- Associating with non-profits todevelop green zones in barren lands in Navi Mumbai
- Promoting afforestation in areas where deforestation has taken a toll in the surrounding areas
- Plantation of trees at Rabale Hill in Navi Mumbai
- Animal welfare is also an agenda where street animals are cured through surgeries
- Associating with non –profits to provide equal treatment to all species
