As part of Ingersoll Rand’s recognition of Earth Day 2019, employees of Ingersoll Rand India participated in a tree plantation activity across India to demonstrate their commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability. Ingersoll Rand employees in India joined their hands to plant trees.
Globally, Ingersoll Rand and its 49,000 employees throughout the week, committed to make changes towards a healthier and more sustainable world and encouraging others to do the same. At sites across the globe, Green Teams are leading earth-friendly efforts like reducing office supplies use, eliminating single-use plastics (straws and utensils), reducing or eliminating junk mail, removing trash bins at desks to encourage less paper, and using rechargeable batteries.
This year the theme at Ingersoll Rand is centered on ‘Small Changes that Make a Big Impact’. Through this campaign, employees are coming forward and volunteering to improve the environmental impact. Actions like using their own water bottles to stay hydrated, bringing their own canvas or synthetic reusable shopping bags, using cold water when washing clothes and shutting off lights or electronics when not needed to conserve energy and electricity.
“Sustainability is core to who we are and every day is considered Earth Day at Ingersoll Rand,” said Geetanjali Bhatia, Head, Corporate Communications & CSR, Ingersoll Rand in India. “We know that small environmental actions made consistently over a period of time, and when joined together as a group of 49,000, can make a considerable impact on our world.”
To further demonstrate how small changes can make big impacts, Ingersoll Rand is partnering with SolarBuddy to donate and help assemble 3,000 lights that will be distributed to children in energy poverty regions throughout the year. SolarBuddy provides access to electricity with a safe, reliable, effective, innovative solar light to use after dusk.
