Various initiatives of SJVN, such as organising Satluj Aradhana, Plantation drives at various projects, energy-conservation measures at CHQ and at projects assist in creating awareness and inculcating environmental sensitivity amongst the masses. He stated that it is the prerogative of each one of us to consciously contribute towards reimagining, recreating and restoring the ecosystem, so that we offer a better World to live, to our future generations."
Commemorating Environment Day, SJVN organised a photography competition on the surrounding ecosystem and biodiversity and a slogan-writing competition on ecosystem restoration for its employees posted at CHQ, Shimla.
