- Over 50 team members volunteer to plant saplings as part of Eco TDOG
- CSR Initiative by Telus
Noida, India: As part of TELUS International India’s flagship corporate social responsibility initiative, TELUS Day of Giving (TDOG), in August, more than 50 team member volunteers planted 1,500 saplings in Noida Sector-150. The driving force behind this initiative is to actively contribute to the Green India Mission, bolstering the nation’s forest cover. The planted saplings are native to the region and will flourish in the current environment.
The beneficiary non-governmental organization (NGO) for this year’s Eco TDOG is Give Me Trees Trust, India’s largest community-based voluntary tree planting and conservation movement, working to establish micro forests and urban green spaces. The NGO was founded by Swami Prem Parivartan, or ‘Peepal Baba,’ a well-known local environmentalist. He, alongside his team, have helped plant more than 20 million trees in 202 districts across 18 states in India.
“Observing our team members unite for this noble cause and contribute towards the mission of a greener society is both inspiring and heartwarming. The collective dedication they exhibit underscores the remarkable capacity for positive change that can emerge from within our organization. As we move forward, TELUS International India remains steadfast in its commitment to play an active and meaningful role towards the care of our nation’s environment. The passion demonstrated by our team members reaffirms our resolve to embrace responsibility for the well-being of our surroundings, driving us to continually explore innovative avenues for environmental care and sustainability,” shared Arshad Majeed, Service Delivery Vice President for TELUS International Digital Solutions.
TELUS International India has been actively engaged in similar activities focused on supporting local communities and driving environmental benefits. In a TDOG event held earlier this year, 474 donors and 46 fitness challenge finishers participated in the TDOG Virtual Fitness Challenge and dedicated almost a thousand volunteer hours to raise funds also in support of Give Me Trees Trust. In 2022, 3,500 saplings were planted in Ghaziabad in support of SayTrees Environmental Trust.
Environmental and health challenges have been long standing concerns in India. TELUS International continues to place focus on finding unique ways to address these, as well as to ensure the health of its team members and their loved ones, through initiatives like this, along with increasing India’s green cover by planting trees.
