On World Environment Day, Hindustan Zinc introduced a novel project called Zinc Eco Buddies in Udaipur, which is a virtual platform where anybody may sign a green pledge and Hindustan Zinc will plant a tree in their honour. This plantation push is a step toward conserving and sustaining nature’s natural equilibrium.
Arun Misra – CEO Hindustan Zinc said, “The vision of building a cleaner, greener, and more resilient economy is now possible if we follow the 7R principles (Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Repurpose, Reuse, Recycle, Rot) and augment our efforts towards restoring the ecosystem through investments that are aligned with creating long term impact on the environment. We are pleased to launch Zinc Eco Buddies – a virtual plantation portal for everyone where we aim to plant 1 lakh trees through this initiative as a part of our vision of 1 million plantations by 2025.”
Vedanta Group has also vowed to plant more than 1 million trees throughout its operational locations as part of the Vedanta Cares Green Cover programme. The plantation drive is a way of showing our appreciation for Mother Earth’s numerous blessings.
In 2020-21, the firm plans to plant roughly 1.2 lakh trees and is guided by the principles of zero damage, zero waste, and zero discharge.
