India’s leading developer and owner of Grade A industrial real-estate and logistics parks, IndoSpace has launched ‘A Greener Lunchtime’ initiative aimed at terminating single-use plastic use among its client workforce at all sites. With this, IndoSpace is keen on encouraging eco-friendly practices within the park, prompting a sustainable, environmental-friendly lifestyle as part of its green philosophy.
As a pilot drive, this initiative was launched at the IndoSpace Park in Luhari on World Environment Day 2022. 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.
The drive is in line with the Indian Government’s nationwide plan on banning all single-use plastic from July 01, 2022, and will aid the effort in minimising single-use plastic.
Overtime, this initiative will result in helping replace 3.4 lakhs single-use plastic bags with eco-friendly reusable cloth bags.
Rajesh Jaggi, Vice Chairman, Real-Estate, 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.”
IndoSpace intends to lead the warehousing industry in terms of environmental sustainability, social embodiment, and true governance as a market leader. IndoSpace has invested over US$3 billion in the construction of various industrial parks across India. Its portfolio spans 49 million sq ft, spread across 44 industrial and logistics parks in 10 cities, where all the parks follow strict environmental-friendly policies in their daily operations.
