Environmental sustainability :
Along with undertaking tree plantation, Bajaj Electricals Ltd. is commited to educate and involve our diverse stakeholders to be a part of the journey to ensure environmental sustainability. We as a responsible and conscious organisation regularly undertake tree plantation & creating a sense of responsibility towards resource protection and pollution free environment. Plantations are done in pan India locations in areas such as schools, colleges, central police canteens, roadside, wasteland and watershed /community farms for economically weaker farmers.

In addition, under Clean India project, municipal solid waste management initiatives and beach cleanup drives were undertaken. The waste management projects were implemented at the ward level, Gram Panchayat level and with individual societies, allowing us to impact the lives of 30000 people by managing over 2 Tonnes of waste scientifically. Similarly, we were able to reduce the quantum of waste collected at Dadar beach from 5 tonnes to 0.5 tonnes, via focused, continuous cleanliness drives.
These projects were implemented through Stree Mukti Sangathana, Hariyali, GEV, NARAD, Raah Foundation and Bajaj Electricals Foundation.
