Egis, a leading global architecture, consulting, construction engineering and mobility service sectors company, continues to demonstrate its commitment to environmental stewardship through its flagship initiative, “Aranaya.” With a focus on combating climate change and fostering sustainability, Egis in India launched this initiative in 2022, aiming to transform designated areas into vibrant green spaces.

Under the guidance of the CSR Committee of Egis in India, and in collaboration with NGO partner “Hara Jeevan,” the “EgisCleanAndGreen” drive in Gurgaon has made significant strides toward promoting environmental conservation. Recognizing the urgent need for action, Egis chose to support this initiative, aligning with its core values as a responsible corporate citizen.

The initiative unfolded in three phases, each aimed at addressing different aspects of environmental conservation. In Phase I, volunteers from Egis India and Hara Jeevan NGO conducted a comprehensive cleanliness drive near NH-8, focusing on removing plastic waste, eliminating weeds, and collecting dried leaves for composting.

Phase II witnessed over 100 enthusiastic volunteers from Egis India and Hara Jeevan coming together for a massive plantation drive. Leading by example, Egis Senior Management actively participated in planting ayurvedic and medicinal plants in a specially designated zone within the green belt. To further enrich the ecosystem, eco-friendly measures such as eco fencing, artificial bird nests, and provision of water for birds were implemented, alongside the utilization of tree logs and other waste materials.

In phase III, Egis now initiates ‘Aranaya 2.0’ which already have 1000 saplings.

Looking ahead, Egis in India is committed to sustaining its environmental initiatives, including the “One Employee One Plant” campaign, which encourages every member of Egis to contribute to greening efforts.

Mr. Sandeep Gulati, MD, India and South Asia, Egis, expressed his appreciation for the enthusiastic participation and emphasized Egiss unwavering dedication to environmental sustainability. He stated, “Through Project Clean and Green, Egis in India aims to create a lasting impact on the environment and inspire positive change in communities.” Egis in India remains steadfast in its commitment to supporting the governments environmental goals and remains dedicated to shaping a greener, more sustainable future for all.
