In honor of Earth Day, our associates in India came together to plant trees in their local communities. Read on to learn more about this initiative and our continued partnership with NABET India.
In 2021, 17 Gartner associates joined our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) team in partnership with NABET, a non-profit organization to plant over 50 trees in the proximity of the newly built Gartner office in Gurgaon, India.
This year, almost 50 of our associates celebrated Earth Day by working together to plant more trees as part of our continued commitment to environmental sustainability.
NABET runs an initiative under the name “Project Vriksha”– whose main aim is to sensitize the citizens about the need to protect the environment. They have planted and distributed thousands of trees in a short period and encourage people to be aware of how a small step like planting a tree can bring a tremendous change in our environment.
Greens Between the Greys
Gurgaon is India’s second-largest information technology hub and third-largest financial and banking hub. With offices and concrete land all around, it’s important to plan the green infrastructure as well. Volunteers from Gartner were very happy to be a part of this initiative which is much needed at this moment when cities are facing issues related to ecological imbalance. As an added bonus, this greenery will provide a beautiful space for our associates and others who have nearby offices, to relax and reenergize.
More plants and trees will be added to the same land shortly to make maximum use of the area. These plants will be taken care of closely – watering them and making the soil fertile with compost.
