To curb and fight the pollution and make city more greener, Rapid Metro took this initiative to plant more trees around every station.
Speaking on the occasion, Sanjiv Rai said, “We are happy to be a part of this celebration with Canon India and hope that the community nurtures the plants in the coming years to receive maximum benefits. Rapid Metro’s commitment to provide better living is an inherent part of our corporate philosophy.”
“We are always conscious about our responsibility towards the planet, and constantly strive to make optimum use of natural resources, which will further help offset our collective carbon footprint.”
Kazutada Kobayashi, President & CEO Canon India added, “Social responsibility of any business is a voluntary decision that the entrepreneurial leadership of every company must make on its own. Today, we are very proud to associate with IL&FS Rail Ltd as this is a step further in our incessant efforts aimed at increasing biodiversity in the community we operate in.”
“Besides Education and Eye Care, Environment is one of the three core areas adopted by CSR at Canon India. In line with the same, we have adopted four green belts in Gurgaon which we will nurture and develop over the next few years.”
Rapid Metro is being developed as the transport solution for Cyber City and will provide connectivity to Sikanderpur and NH-8 in Gurgaon. Rapid Metro project is registered with UNFCCC & MoEF under United Nations Clean Development Mechanism for claiming carbon credits. The project will reduce on average 105,863 tCO2 per annum in the first crediting period.
