Our journey towards Good & Green starts from the articulation of our commitment to build a more inclusive and greener planet to the aspiration of creating more employable workforce through initiatives that create both social & business benefits.
Sustainable growth in maintaining a healthier environment, aligned with organizational achievement, is the most welcoming outcome of the commitment towards Good & Green. This spirit drives us towards creating a greener & healthier industry. Throughout the last few years, we have worked closely with our Team and the local community across different business location to create a positive social impact & enhancing livelihoods.
With a view to creating a “greener world” we take a number of different initiatives each year as part of our Good and Green project.
By demonstrating Energy efficient initiatives; we have successfully reduced Power consumption reflecting in tangible financial & Carbon Footprint savings in our factories. With focus on paradigm shift in climatic conditions, like every year we have celebrated World Environment Day on 5th June at all our business locations.
Godrej Global Volunteering Day is observed each year on Dec 5 with lots of enthusiasm. In 2017, aligning with Godrej Global Volunteering Day, we observed GGVD on 5th Dec in 5 Schools and 1 College across all business units. More than 65 ACI Godrej employees volunteered with 1,250 children & Students in order to spread the message of “Greener Planet”. Last year, Godrej Global Volunteer Day was celebrated at all business locations. As a part of CSR Support we considered local Madrasa & created awareness on Beat Plastic Pollution. We did some activities including Tree plantation, cleaning activities. We have distributed water purifier and some textbooks to the institution.
Our Factories collaborating with NGOs have organized Blood donation campaign as a humanitarian cause for the common mankind through the affiliation of Voluntary Blood Donating Organizations, Red Crescent and Local City Unit. As a part of community development, we carry out a number of different initiatives for the underprivileged and ultra-poor. In this connection, we have built sanitary toilet at a local girls’ high school around our factory. After the project, students enrollment increased by 56% this year. Student’s absenteeism reduced drastically.
