The Initiative
Environmental Awareness Program: (on occasion of World Environment Day)

"Lessons taught at a young age have a lasting impression on one's mind but it's never too late to begin working for a good cause." With this thought in mind, we have been religiously celebrating Environment Week on the occasion of "World Environment Day" for the past 6 years in the first week of June.

Since 2010, KPIT has been celebrating the Environment Week on the occasion of "World Environment Day". In the year 2016-17, Environment Week was celebrated from 1st June to 6th June at all our India locations with great enthusiasm and vigor. Various events were organized to create an awareness about environment-related issues and to demonstrate how KPIT cares for the nature.

Environment day is celebrated to spread global awareness about environmental issues amongst our employees and to encourage their attention and action towards it. A number of unique initiatives are organized at the above mentioned locations that receive an extremely encouraging response from the employees.
