Since its birth around two years ago, the Forests of Siemens Gamesa – one of the company’s flagship projects when it comes to sustainability and climate protection – has grown to an impressive 100,000 trees around the globe. Siemens Gamesa colleagues in India took it upon themselves to grow it even further with the planting of 5,000 new saplings.
This Sunday 120 Siemens Gamesa colleagues along with their families volunteered to create their own little urban man-made forest by planting 5,000 saplings near the company’s main location in India. Together with NGO partner Round Table India Trust, who organized this event, they thereby contributed to both UN Sustainable Development Goals 13 and 15 – Climate Change and Life on Land – by creating our forests.
“It is wonderful to work with our families for a greener cause which goes along with what our company stands for,” said Navin Dewaji, Siemens Gamesa Onshore CEO in India.
“It for sure was a re-energizing moment for all of us as we planted trees and created a positive energy around us in India,” added Jan Willem, Siemens Gamesa Service CEO in India.
Young and old both enjoyed in equal measure doing their part in creating a greener world. It was a beautiful sight especially to see all the children excitedly planting trees, adding manure, and listening intently to how they can contribute to our environment.
