GM India Celebrates World Environment Day with Activities in Pune and Bangalore
To recognize World Environment Day on June 5th, General Motors engaged in organizing community outreach activities across the globe, which promoted environmental safety and conservation. GM employees the world over participated activities such as tree plantation, water conservation, plastic-free awareness initiatives, and lake restoration, just to name a few.
GM India was part of that worldwide push, with the company’s Talegaon facility rolling out a series of activities and encouraging its employees to partake in the Green Initiative. In keeping with the global theme of ‘Connecting with Nature’, the pathway lights at the Talegaon office were turned green and all the employees wore green wristbands bearing the message “I’m with Nature.” GM India Talegaon also organized Tree Plantation Drive and PUC service camps on the plant premises, while the Talegaon team organized an outreach activity that promoted the usage of paper bags by distributing 500 paper bags.
