The move seeks to promote usage of public transport instead of private.
In its bid to promote a sustainable and green public-transport option among its employees, Indus Towers, the telecom tower company, has joined hands with Rapid Metro Gurugram.
To encourage more people to take it up, leading by example, Bimal Dayal, CEO, Indus Towers along with the employees and Rajiv Banga, managing director and chief executive officer, IL&FS Rail, boarded the Rapid Metro from Sector 55–56 Rapid Metro Station and travelled till Vodafone Belvedere Tower Rapid Metro Station.
The move aims to promote usage of public transport, instead of private transport, amongst employees and is in line with Indus’ commitment towards protecting the environment and reducing carbon footprints. The move will benefit Indus’ employees travelling from Gurugram and Delhi NCR to Indus’ office.
Talking of this initiative, Dayal says, “The collaboration with Rapid Metro Gurgaon integrates well with Indus’ philosophy of contributing towards preserving our environment by adopting green and sustainable means of transport.”
Speaking on the collaboration, Banga, says, “Rapid Metro has always been about a stress-free, safe and comfortable journey for our commuters, in a pollution-free and eco-friendly manner. Collaboration with Indus Towers further reinforces our commitment to promote sustainable means of public transport.”
Since its inception in 2008, Indus Towers has consistently worked towards creating value for all its stakeholders in a sustainable manner, with commitment towards green initiatives and ‘Putting India First’. Indus Towers, in line with its commitment towards protecting the environment, has made significant progress in expanding its green sites portfolio to 54 per cent of its total portfolio of towers across India, as of February 2018. Green sites are those telecom sites of Indus Towers, where no diesel is consumed for cell site operations.
