Indus Towers, India’s largest telecom tower company today organized a plantation drive on the 25,000 square feet land sanctioned by Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA), at DLF Cyber City.
The site is adjacent to its corporate office (near Rapid Metro pillar 93A and 93B) where the leadership team of the company, accompanied by other employees planted 100 saplings to support the cause of environment preservation and the need to shift to a low carbon economy on World Environment Day.
Indus Towers offices have installed LED lights with sensors in meeting rooms and workstation areas that switch off automatically when not in use. There are regular e-waste collection drives in all its offices for proper waste disposal and donation of old laptops to NGOs so that they can be re-used. Several of its offices in India promote cycling to work which helps save fuel, energy and reduces the carbon footprint.
Commenting on the occasion, Shankar Iyer, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Indus Towers said, “It is our commitment towards environment that has enabled us to stay focused on our mission towards sustainability and responsible citizenship. Our initiatives in the past like green sites have also resulted in reducing carbon emissions equivalent to planting millions of trees. This initiative to create a green belt in Gurugram is a reiteration of our commitment to ensure a safe and healthy environment.”
Indus Towers has always focused on reducing carbon emissions and related energy costs. The green effort has been recognized in the international arena and Indus has won two GSMA Green Mobile Awards in the last couple of years.
