The celebration of World Environment Day started in 1974 with the goal of raising awareness, supporting action and driving change.

The organisation has adopted simpler steps such as replacing all plastic plates and cutlery with stainless steel/ reusable ones, food waste segregation into wet and dry waste and encouraging employees to carry their own mugs for tea and coffee.

Swati Mohan, National Geographic Business Head, said: "This move will enable the brand to save more than 2.5 million single-use plastic bags every month". Marking the day, the Indian government announced its pledge to eliminate by 2022 all single use of plastics in India.

He said, three hundred million LED bulbs are being installed across India which has saved electricity and also prevented huge additional amounts of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere. "We in ITC are extremely committed through our initiative of Well being out of Waste (WOW), which focusses on providing an end-to-end sustainable and a scalable solution spanning the entire value chain right from awareness, segregation, collection and promotion, reuse or recycle of solid waste".

Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan, UN Environment Director, industrialists, and many dignitaries participated in the program.

"You need to set yourself achievable timelines but you also need to make sure there is meaningful progress".
