India Inc. on World Environment Day

Jasal R Shah – MD/CEO of Markelytics Solutions

Media Coverage: Estrade

Every year, June 5, is celebrated as World Environment Day. The day was first designated by the UN General Assembly in 1972 on the first day of United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, which resulted in the first hosting of World Environment Day (WED) in 1974, with the theme “Only One Earth” In 2017, the host nation is Canada, with the theme, “Connecting People to Nature – in the city and on the land, from the poles to the equator”.

On the occasion of this year’s WED, Team Estrade had an opportunity to connect with leaders of India Inc., on their views on threats to planet Earth’s environment.

Celebrating June 5th as the World Environment’s Day is indeed a great acknowledgment of our sensitivities towards nature but in my opinion, we need to imbibe and carry this sensitivity through rest of the 364 days as well. The best way of connecting people to nature would be to first let them know and realize how our world will look if nature is not protected and preserved. This will bring a sense of responsibility on all of us esp. the younger generations. Moreover, we all should bring a paradigm shift in our thinking that, though highly appreciated, we don’t need a campaign like Swachh Bharat to ignite the realization within us, rather it should come by default; unfortunately that’s not the case and our government had to bring this campaign and hence it is high time, we act as custodians of nature in our individual capacities. Reiterating the words of our Prime Minister, “Paris or no Paris, it is our conviction that we have no right to snatch from our future generation their right to have a clean and beautiful Earth”. Let’s not act just as citizens of our respective countries but citizens of the Earth, cutting across all geographical and cultural barriers that may exist and Protect, Promote and Preserve the Mother Nature.
