Over the past couple of months, AGC Networks has taken an environmental initiative of "Green Wave - Plant a Life" -spanning across India. 100 saplings, including 5 forest trees have been planted and several saplings have been donated to NGOs. This green initiative is to sensitize participants on the importance and benefits of green surroundings and encourage them to contribute towards a bigger societal cause.
As a responsible Corporate citizen, AGC has been persistently working towards adding value to society. Disposal of waste in an orderly manner proves beneficial in not just ensuring a safe environment, but helps in building a cleaner and greener world. With this objective in mind, in the quarter gone by, AGC Networks, in collaboration with Evergreen Recycle Karo (I) Pvt. Ltd., approved by Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB), launched a paper and electronic waste re-cycling drive. The response in terms of people's participation and waste contribution was phenomenal and is now continuing.
In the past 40 years there has been a rise in global paper consumption by 400% and with more than 35% of all the harvested trees being used only for paper production. This adds its share to waste production and water pollution. Production of one ton of printing paper costs our planet nearly 24 trees. At AGC, we maintain the best practices in order to lower our consumption of paper by undertaking several small yet impactful initiatives such as introducing ceramic cups for AGC Guests and employees thus replacing the paper cups previously in use, leading to substantial savings.
