Roposo to celebrate 'World Environment Day' with interesting initiatives

ANI  |  New Delhi 

On the occasion of World Environment Day, Roposo announced the celebration with some eco-friendly initiatives. From Friday onwards, the company will start its day by switching off the lights for three hours and ensure that the air conditioning was at an environment-friendly 24 degrees centigrade.

The management has decided to maintain this temperature (24 degrees C) throughout the summer in order to increase electricity savings by three to five percent. All office lights and air conditioners will remain switched off from Friday evening to Monday morning.

In addition, the company has also initiated an interesting tree plantation drive in the office complex that saw participation from all the employees. In a bid to do their bit to save the environment, the employees pledged to take care of the trees in their surroundings, and also plant more trees in their residential vicinity.

Roposo is doing away with paper cups and replacing them with reusable mugs and glasses. The employees were also advised to limit the use of paper napkins. To further enhance the environmental consciousness of its workforce, the company is hosting a breakfast session on Tuesday, June 7, to discuss various ways in which everybody can collectively pitch in and work out simple solutions to save the environment.

"On account of World Environment Day, we at Roposo are introducing a number of initiatives to do our own little bit for the planet. We believe if we start these initiatives at an office level, their impact will eventually make its way into the individual lives of our employees and will enhance their propensity to be sensitive towards the environment in their own way," said HR Head, Mona Thangaraj.
