Tree Planting with Children to Beat Concrete Expansion in Gurgaon, India

Mitsubishi Electric India (MEI) initiated a tree planting drive at the Huda City Centre, in Sector 29 of Gurgaon. The tree planting drive was a part of the MEI CSR Initiative to promote greenery in Gurgaon City. With more and more concrete expansion, Gurgaon—a satellite city of Delhi— has lost most of its green cover. However, with constant attention being given to the issue, several organizations have rallied together over the past few years to restore the green cover.

The activity was carried out on August 30, 2014, in partnership with an NGO and Bluebells International School in Gurgaon, from which over 50 students participated on the day of the tree planting.

Since the inception of the tree planting campaign last year, with the movement in line with the environmental statement "Eco Changes," a significant number of trees have been planted in Gurgaon. This campaign is usually launched during the monsoon season with the active participation of local school children.

MEI has planted over 8,000 saplings, which have had a minimal mortality rate since they are cared for by a team of gardeners and an irrigation supervisor, who combined put in 1,200 man-hours per month for the upkeep and maintenance of the plants.
