This project aligns with our commitment to promoting sustainable water management practices, and we hope it will help improve the lives of the local community.”
The water rejuvenation initiative involved a multi-faceted approach that incorporated identification and mitigation of pollution sources, restoration of lake ecology by introducing native species of plants and fishes, community education and awareness programs on water conservation, management and improved management of the lake through regular monitoring and maintenance.
RamveerTanvar, Founder, Say Earth and TEDx Speaker, said, “I am humbled to be a part of Coca-Cola India’s efforts towards uplifting communities and empowering them with sustainable practices. The team has worked tirelessly to develop and implement a customized plan that would address specific issues facing the lake. The success of the project will be a testament to the organization’s expertise and dedication to environmental conservation.”
This initiative will be led by the local community. By addressing water quality issues and enhancing the ecosystem, the project will contribute to the overall health and wellbeing of the community.
