Greenply Industries promises a greener future with the launch of its ‘Green Vision’

On 5th June 2023, Greenply Industries announced the pledge to plant 50 million saplings by the year 2025, which is aimed at environmental conservation and sustainable development. The company plans to plant these saplings across the states of Gujarat, Nagaland, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal. Besides environmental protection, the plantation activity aims to help in the sustainable procurement of raw materials and the financial viability of the ecosystem while generating employment opportunities for local communities.

With an ever-growing focus on environmental responsibility and the insistent need to combat climate change, Greenply Industries recognizes the significance of committed involvement in creating a greener future. By setting this ambitious target, the company aims to contribute substantially to the restoration of forests, combat deforestation, and boost the overall ecological balance.

Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Manoj Tulsian, Joint Managing Director & CEO, of Greenply Industries, said, “Our pledge to plant 50 million samplings by 2025 is an extension to our commitment towards environment and sustainability. Environment Social Governance has become an integral part of decision-making for Greenply, and the company has been undertaking activities beyond tree plantation to keep its environmental impact under check, to reduce emissions, and move towards renewable energy generation.”

He added, “In the coming years, the focal point in our sustainability agenda will be to objectively consider all potential sustainability impacts that might affect both our business and stakeholders, going beyond the financial and strategic risks we currently take into consideration.”
