In Bengaluru, the efforts have been replicated, with RK Mission at Shivanahalli and a group of villages in Nelamangala playing host to KPIT’s environmental efforts. KPIT planted and adopted 1000 saplings, over a period of two years, strengthening the buffer zones in the Bannerghatta National Park and the Nelamangala bypass corridor. Plantation activities year round engaged 437 employees, all of whom supported the initiative in collectively ensuring a more hospitable environment in our cities.
Afforestation at Nelamangala was kick started on the eve of Earth day celebration which is celebrated on 22nd April across the globe in order to demonstrate support for the environment protection. As part of this, KPIT volunteers in association with Youth For Seva visited Nelamangala (rural area) and watered around 800 saplings in order to protect the saplings already planted. This step is to conserve the forest area in order to conserve our mother earth. 20 of our volunteers actively participated in this event. This is another major initiative KPIT Bangalore stepped into the focus area of environment.
