Earth Day

Powering a Greener Future this Earth Day and Beyond

Although our world is fantastic, it requires our assistance to survive! For this reason, more than a billion people commemorate Earth Day on April 22 every year to save the earth from environmental threats like pollution and deforestation. We can contribute to a happier and healthier planet by doing litter pickup and planting trees. 

The first Earth Day was observed in 1970 when a Wisconsin senator coordinated a nationwide protest to draw attention to environmental issues. Nationwide demonstrations were held, and by year’s end, the US government established the Environmental Protection Agency. Earth Day was observed in more than 140 nations worldwide by 1990

Unprecedented threats confront our planet: deforestation, pollution, biodiversity loss, and climate change. The purpose of Earth Day is to increase public awareness of the need to safeguard the planet’s natural resources for coming generations. 

One of the most critical challenges is assisting India in meeting its energy needs while minimising its environmental impact. Adani Group’s efforts to conserve the environment are intended to lessen the threat of deteriorating landscapes and transform them into more lush, productive land areas. Reviving environmentally sensitive places like Mundra, where we have preserved and expanded mangrove afforestation, is a prime example of success in this regard.

As the pioneering electricity provider in India, we implemented ‘supercritical’ technology to lower CO2 emissions, a move that earned us the UNFCCC’s Clean Development Certification. We also manage one of the world’s biggest solar power projects, the Kamuthi Solar Power Project in Tamil Nadu. When it comes to cutting waste and increasing efficiency, we are leading the way. Our Khavda Renewable Energy Park in Gujarat, which is five times the size of Paris, is one of the biggest in the world. 

Plastic pollution is spreading quickly over the earth and is present in almost every place. Even in its smallest form, known as microplastic, it harms human health. Microplastics are little, synthetic plastic particles that cling to surfaces. They were discovered in the bodies of fish and other marine animals.

The event’s theme this year is “Planet vs. Plastics,” which aims to increase public awareness of the detrimental effects that plastic pollution has on both human and environmental health. The theme was selected with the historic UN plastics convention in mind, which is anticipated to be adopted by the end of 2024. 

Do you know that Adani Energy Solutions has been acknowledged by the Confederation of Indian Industry-ITC Center of Excellence for Sustainable Development as a “single-use plastic-free” enterprise? 

The company has received certification for its effective voluntary adoption of single-use plastic-free policies throughout its 37 operating locations, which are scattered throughout ten states in the nation.

AESL has certified with “Water Positive certification,” “Single-use Plastic Free Company”, and “Zero Waste to Landfill certification” to its list of accolades, making it the first electrical utility in India to do so.

This Earth Day, let’s pledge to be the change we want to see – a world brimming with life through sustainable solutions.
