One of the world’s leading diamond crafting companies, Shree Ramkrishna Exports Pvt. Ltd. (SRK), announced at its ‘Pure Diwali Get Together’ celebration that it was gifting solar rooftop panels to 1000 of its employees.
SRK Exports is dedicated to promoting sustainability and environmental consciousness among the community as well as its employees, who are considered family members by the company. Through this gesture of festive giving as part of the company’s employee appraisal programme, SRK Exports is helping employees use renewable energy at home for the first time.
“SRK is a purpose-driven company and has always led by giving back to society and the environment,” said Shri Govind Dholakia, Founder & Chairman of SRK Exports (aka Govindkaka). “This mindset has enabled SRK to become a globally trusted and respected leader. But our success would not be possible without the partnership and support of our team.”
“SRK is committed to cultivating a culture that values the health and wellbeing of our family members and the environment,” said Jayanti Narola, Entrepreneur-SRK Exports. “As we celebrate Diwali this year, we are proud to recognize the accomplishments of our employees and to help them lead healthier and more sustainable lives.”
In August, SRK Knowledge Foundation (SRKKF), the philanthropic arm of SRK Exports similarly announced they would install solar rooftops at the homes of 750 martyred soldiers and unsung heroes. Govindkaka’s home village Dudhala has also been powered 100% by solar energy.
Initiatives such as these align with the Honourable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi’s Solar Rooftop Yojana and are part of SRK’s commitment to becoming a worldwide leader in ESG. Earlier this month, in partnership with the Global Network for Zero, the company took bold steps in cementing this leadership when they pledged to reach net zero emissions for two of their diamond crafting facilities by 2024, six years earlier than India’s 2030 goals.
