WAAREE to Plant 10K Trees to Uplift Rural Livelihoods and Boost Environment Conservation
WAAREE Group, India's largest solar panel manufacturer and exporter with a manufacturing capacity of 9GW, has initiated a plantation drive on the land of their farmer-beneficiaries in the Banaskantha district of Gujarat state in India. This drive will yield sustainable results for almost 500 farmers in the village.
The CSR project is in line with the company's commitment to saving energy by using green energy. It also helps India's farmers make a living by giving them more money.
The recipients are mostly from the Banaskantha region and come from low-income families. Climate change, the financial crisis, and inflation are making it hard for these farmers to make a living because their crops are failing.
In the first phase, WAAREE planted 1000 saplings, which would lead to 10,000 saplings in 1 year. These are native fruit species and medicinal plants which will turn into full-grown trees with a lifespan of around 25–30 years, supporting the farmers once they start bearing fruits. It will also help in fighting climate change by reducing approximately 500 tonnes of CO2 and releasing more than 920+ tonnes of oxygen into the atmosphere annually.
Hitesh Doshi, Chairman & Managing Director, WAAREE Energies, stated:
"This tree-planting drive is part of the Indian government's "Go Green" plan to fight the effects of global warming and climate change by planting trees. As a socially conscious organisation, WAAREE believes in contributing optimally to maintaining the ecological balance, creating a sustainable society, and maintaining a clean, green environment for future generations. We thank everyone involved in this initiative, and all those farmers, for making this drive a resounding success."
