The Earth Care Awards
Encourages companies to plan for a sustainable future
The 8th edition of Earth Care Awards (ECA), a joint initiative of The Times of India and the JSW Group, was organised recently in the national capital to recognise the efforts of individuals, community groups and corporations to safeguard the ecosystem. The ECA recognise, verify, and promote the replicable initiatives and interventions on the greenhouse gasses (GHG) emission reduction, natural resource conserva- tion, energy efficiency improvement, development and promotion of innovative eco-friendly alternatives across various sectors of development.
This year nine entities out of nearly 250 applicants were presented with the awards under four broad categories –
- Leadership in urban climate action
- Industry (green- house gas mitigation by large enterprises)
- Innovation for climate protection
The awards are technically supported by knowledge partner Centre for Environment Education (CEE) and outreach partner Technology,Education, Research and Rehabilitation for the Environment.
