IndoSpace launched ‘A Greener Lunchtime’, on June 6th aninitiative aimed at terminating single-use plastic use among its client workforce at all sites. This initiative was launched to encourage eco-friendly practices within the park, prompting a sustainable, environmental-friendly lifestyle as part of its green philosophy.
The pilot drive was launched at the IndoSpace Park in Luhari on World Environment Day. The park caters to a 3,000-strong workforce wherein most staff used single-use plastic bags to carry essentials. By flagging off ‘A Greener Lunchtime’, IndoSpace distributed reusable cloth bags in exchange for every single use plastic used by the client work force. As a result, of this initiative, it helped replace 3.4 lakhs single -use plastic bags with ecofriendly reusable cloth bags. This drive is in line with the Indian Government’s nationwide plan on banning all single-use plastic from July1, 2022, and will aid the effort in minimizing single-use plastic.
Rajesh Jaggi, Vice-Chairman, Real Estate, The Everstone Group, said “At IndoSpace, we believe, that it is very important to reduce the individual plastic footprint and hence we want to sensitize our employees, tenants, tenant workforce and value chain partners about the same. On this World Environment Day, we at IndoSpace have taken a pledge to launch our single use plastic ban policy in a phased manner across the organisation”.
