State of our Environment

The rapid urbanisation of Indian cities has adversely impacted our natural ecosystems. To mitigate this impact, it is critical to empower local populations and build urban resilience with sustainable solutions.

Our aim is to achieve a balance between the economic and social development of human habitats, ensuring the protection of the ecosystems they reside in.

Our Approach

Production & Consumption

Industries manufacture products and services to meet the growing demand. Increase in production and consumption patterns deepens the stress on finite natural resources. Linear extractive production processes and wasteful consumption overlook the inherent value of resources.

Waste and Emissions

Industrial wastes and emissions are one of the primary causes of pollution. Wastes produced and let out into the natural environment can cause both health and ecological damage.

Recovery and Reuse

Following a circular economy model gives us the tools to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss together, while addressing critical social and health needs.

Natural Resources

Natural Resources are the bedrock for Economic Growth. Energy, Food, Water are extracted from Nature to feed, nurture and grow entire populations.

Key Focus Areas

We focus on three core areas to build urban resilience and empower cities to effectively combat environmental stresses. Given the interconnectedness of the challenges, our interventions need to be focused for maximum impact as well as complement our efforts across our key sectors.
