Hyderabad: Welspun group celebrated World Environment Day 2023 with a series of sustainability initiatives and community events held in the rural setting of Haythabad. Under the theme of #BeatPlasticPollution, the company reaffirmed its commitment to environmental stewardship and showcased its dedication to sustainable practices.
As part of the festivities, Welspun organized a range of activities that made a positive impact on the local community and the environment. A large-scale cleanliness drive was conducted in areas such as government schools and vegetable markets, with over 100 enthusiastic participants engaging in an hour-long "Greenathon." The cleanup efforts aimed to promote cleanliness and raise awareness about the importance of waste management.
In addition to the cleanliness drive, Welspun also organized a plantation drive in collaboration with the horticulture department. Numerous saplings were planted throughout the premises, contributing to the overall green cover and ecosystem. This initiative aligned with the company's commitment to biodiversity conservation, as Welspun actively seeks to reduce its impact on the environment and support the local ecosystem.
To engage and educate the community, Welspun hosted a quiz contest centered around the theme of World Environment Day. The contest served as a platform for participants to showcase their knowledge and understanding of environmental issues, fostering a sense of awareness and responsibility among the attendees.
Welspun has always placed environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations at the forefront of its operations. The company has collaborated with various organizations to enhance its sustainability performance and set industry benchmarks for the textile and manufacturing sectors. By going beyond compliance and embracing sustainable practices, Welspun continues to demonstrate its commitment to environmental protection and social responsibility.
Welspun Spokesperson said, "World Environment Day provides us with an opportunity to reflect on our collective responsibility towards the planet. At Welspun, sustainability is not just a buzzword; it is ingrained in our DNA. We are committed to minimizing our environmental impact, conserving biodiversity, and making a positive difference in the communities we operate in. Our World Environment Day celebrations reflect these values and our ongoing commitment to sustainability."
