Ahmedabad: Adani Total Gas Ltd (ATGL), India’s largest private CGD company and a joint venture between the Adani Group and Total Energies, has launched a new green initiative that targets afforestation, outreach to millennials, and energy audits. Titled Greenmosphere, this ATGL initiative will drive mass tree plantation programmes, spread awareness about climate change among the young, and encourage sustainable energy practices through energy audits, said an official statement.
Speaking at the launch of Greenmosphere, Pranav Adani, MD of Agro and Oil and Gas, Adani Group said, “If we are to achieve climate change targets, we need to build strong partnerships with all stakeholders — including governments, corporations and society. As a responsible corporate citizen, the Adani Group cares for the welfare of communities everywhere. This is why we are determined to give back to society through innovative, sustainable, long-term solutions.”
Adani Total Gas’s Greenmosphere initiative: Afforestation
“The afforestation programme, which envisages large-scale community participation, aims to increase the fresh sources of oxygen. This, in turn, will reduce the copious amount of greenhouse gases. ATGL sees Greenmosphere as a corporate movement that will help in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by halting deforestation, boosting afforestation, and supporting wetland conservation,” said Adani Total Gas.
Afforestation under this initiative will be done through the Akira Miyawaki technique, which works even on adverse soil and in adverse climate conditions. Case studies from across the world have established that the forests cultivated by adapting this technique are 30 times denser, which implies that they absorb thirty times more carbon dioxide.
This scheme further aims to create dense green pockets in urban areas, which will greatly benefit the community. Adani Total Gas has already employed the Miyawaki technique at its plant in Ramol, Ahmedabad.
The most defining component of Greenmosphere is the energy audit, which covers industrial, commercial and residential areas. The assets to be audited include ATGL offices and CNG stations. This will enhance energy efficiency by aligning the processes with energy efficient practices and solutions.
Another integral part of the Greenmosphere initiative is the creation of an awareness platform for millennials across educational institutions. Highlighting the importance of green technology, energy efficiency and conservation, the awareness programme will include activities such as tree planting, storytelling sessions, painting competitions, forest walks and skits.
