The professionals we've engaged sincerely care about the environment and are willing to make the commitments needed to make changes. Such is the impact of our employee engagement programmes. We go a step further by not only engaging them in these activities but also cultivating in them a sense of nature awareness.
Since oxygen is mostly produced from trees, it is essential to all life to breathe it. Continuous oxygen supply is guaranteed by a tree planting. Planting trees promotes the growth of other vegetation.
With the collected seeds, sapling bags are made to create a sapling that will be placed to the on-site nursery and later planted on the site.
A path helps create an atmosphere and be in tune with overall surroundings. A pathway makes their entire surrounding forest seem one. Placing crushed rocks is an easy and economical way of making paths.
Forest play an important role in the purification of the atmospheric air. Therefore, cleaning the forest will improve the health of the forest and in return the forest will keep our health in check.
Deweeding is pulling out weeds and grasses from around the saplings. The weeds near the saplings' bases will be pulled by the participants. This aids in preventing fire damage to the plantation.
In order to stop soil erosion, mulching is the addition of dried grass around the base of the plant.
Economical and easy to construct and no need for technology or machines, these check dam help in control flooding and soil erosion. Check dam controls water velocity and helps ground water recharge.
Tree guards are crucial because they shield young saplings and wildlings from animals that graze on them, and maintaining them guarantees the healthful development of these young saplings and wildlings and encourages the expansion of the forest.
Today at the BNHS Nature Reserve, we held a volunteer event for Morgan Stanley workers.
The event was held at the nature reserve. The event was attended by 87 enthusiastic
employees, all of whom contributed to the construction of check dams across the streams
that ran through the reserve. They also assisted in the process of narrowing the nature trail
pathway margins by hurling stones. A leisurely Sunday spent in the company of mother
nature and contributing in some modest way to the cause of nature preservation.
To mark World Ocean Day in a unique way, we assisted the Taloja Hill Watershed in storing
more water during monsoon. The theme for the day is Planet Ocean: Tides are Changing,
and we are following suit by making improvements to the Taloja Hill forest. Despite the high temperatures, a group of 44 enthusiastic Tata Communications volunteers braved to work
under the open sun to build checkdams.
A check dam is a tiny dam built over a drainage ditch, swale or channel to reduce flow
velocity. Reduced runoff velocity decreases channel erosion and gullying and allows
sediments to settle out. A check dam can be made of stone, gravel-filled sandbags or wood.
The volunteers meticulously collected stones and stacked them on top of each other to
construct five checkdams along the dry stream. It was also a wonderful team-building
exercise. Goodera, one of our clients, organised this event. We are grateful to the
volunteers and organizers that assisted Taloja Hill in storing more water this year.
Yesterday, we organized an employee volunteering program for the employees of SBI Life
Insurance, and we are delighted to share the outcomes of this impactful initiative. 62
dedicated employees actively participated in the program, demonstrating their commitment
to environmental conservation and sustainability.
The focus of our event was a plantation drive aimed at combating soil erosion. We planted
80 saplings that control soil erosion at the bottom slope of the Taloja hill.
We commend the employees of SBI Life Insurance for their active participation and
dedication towards making a positive impact on the environment.
Yesterday, we hosted a volunteer event for Tata Communications at Sanjay Gandhi
National Park, a tremendous triumph!
Forty-four devoted, impassioned employees joined forces to impact the environment
positively. Collectively, we engaged in a park cleaning effort, removing 65 kilogrammes of
non-biodegradable garbage. To create a cleaner and healthier natural environment for
everyone, we collected plastic bottles, cans, and packaging.
However, we did not stop there! Also contributing to preserving the park's water resources,
the team constructed three check dams across the streams. These check dams regulate
water flow, prevent soil erosion, increase water infiltration, enhance groundwater levels and
promote a sustainable ecosystem. It was also an excellent team-building activity. One of our
clients, Goodera, organized this event.
We appreciate the Tata Communications team's dedication and commitment to
environmental stewardship. Let's continue to inspire change and strive for a greener future
as a group!
