Enhancing Green Cover
Environmental sustainability is emerging as an essential ingredient to doing business responsibly and successfully.Our initiative to set sustainability benchmarks for the industry and ensuring a better world for generations to come. Under our CSR project we are conducting tree plantations across different locations along with NGO – partner Seva Sahayog Foundation. A tree has the potential to sequester about a tonne of carbon over 50 years. What’s more, it generates enough oxygen for two human beings for their entire lifetime.We at HHL are committed to increasing the green cover and become one of the active partners in fighting climate change. Trees are an important part of every community and they create a peaceful, aesthetically pleasing environment. Trees increases our quality of life by bringing natural elements and wildlife habitats into urban settings as well. The main objective is to create sense of responsibility towards the resource protection and pollution free environment.
The tree plantation sites identified are basically sub urban within cities and rural villages, thereby focusing on addressing the need of increasing green cover and providing a source of livelihood to tribal farmers.The entire activity is carried out through NGO partner SSF and by Hercules Hoist employees. Plantations shall be done in multiple locations in areas. As part of the monitoring process, an NGO partner – SSF – Mumbai is appointed to conduct tree audits that shall include the plantation analysis and verification, at sites, reporting and certification.
As a Company with a nationwide footprint, HHL supports local projects such as, maintaining community garden, in order to protect vulnerable areas like village and schools from errant vehicle and a part of Highway safety, HHL has donated barricades at the entry and exit of Khalapur express way toll plaza in order to reduce the severity of crashes involving ‘out of control’ vehicles.
