We, at General Motors India, are whole-heartedly committed to ensuring that the society and environment we live in is as safe and healthy as any other. And, over the years, weâ€™ve tried to make a difference by conducting various activities related to this cause.
General Motorsâ€™ Talegaon plant recently concluded its first Energy Conservation Week. Held from June 17th – 22nd 2013, the idea behind this was to raise awareness amongst all about the importance of natural resource management and conservation. The program started-off with a note from the Plant Head, Mr. Rakesh Sabbarwal, where he spoke about the importance of energy conservation and laid the agenda for the week.
After the traditional diya lighting by the senior leadership and an â€œEnergy Pledgeâ€ taken by all across different shops, it was time for the Energy Conservation Week to begin. There were a host of activities for all to indulge in which included sessions on ENCON ideas and seminars on â€˜The most dreadful power pollutants in the industryâ€™. There was even a special talk on ‘Energy Saving Tips for Home’ organized for Urja ladies. A series of e-mails were sent out every day, focusing on the importance of energy conservation as well.
Apart from this, there was a quiz organized for shop floor employees, a tree plantation drive hosted for the senior leadership and a stall set up in the cafeteria displaying energy saving products.
With the program receiving such a warm and enthusiastic response from everyone, the first Energy Conservation week was a big success. And weâ€™re proud of it! We will surely be conducting more such programs in the future, because we, at Chevrolet, care!
