As part of the initiative, Tech Mahindra has introduced electric vehicles that will run five trips daily, covering a radius of 250 green kilometres per day and saving up to 13,500 litres of fuel monthly, thus avoiding greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon sequestered by the initiative per month will be equal to carbon sequestration by 5,241 tree seedlings grown for ten years, indicating the enormous impact of Tech Mahindra’s push for sustainability. In addition to boosting the environment and air conditions, the electric vehicles will also reduce noise pollution significantly.
Harshvendra Soin, Global Chief People Officer and Head – Marketing, Tech Mahindra, said, “At Tech Mahindra, we are committed to driving the shift towards green mobility, focusing on both the environment and people. Embracing a zero-carbon footprint is our commitment to sustainability, and in this direction, introducing electric vehicles for our employees is a significant step towards a greener future. This transition aligns with our core values of responsible corporate citizenship and demonstrates our dedication to building a sustainable tomorrow for future generations.”
