The extensive month-long ‘Nature Positive’ campaign, which Biocon Group, a leading global biopharmaceutical organization, kicked off on World Environment Day, has concluded.
Employees across the group participated in the initiative that was aimed to inspire and engage them in embracing a Nature Positive mindset, emphasising the importance of environmental sustainability.
The Biocon Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of the Biocon Group, joined hands with the Malligavad Foundation to organise a tree plantation drive at Yarandahalli Lake.
This rejuvenation project witnessed the planting of 1,000 saplings, symbolising the group’s dedication to environmental preservation.
The event — which was attended by Dr. Anupama Shetty, Mission Director, Biocon Foundation, and Anand Malligavad, founder of the Malligavad Foundation — brought together over 200 volunteers from Biocon Group, government schools, representatives of Hennagara Panchayat, and the Forest Department.
Dr. Shetty said, “Environmental stewardship is a fundamental aspect of the Biocon Group’s business practices, as we recognise the vital need to conserve natural resources.”
Seema Ahuja, Global Head of Communications & Corporate Brand, Biocon Group, said, “At Biocon Group, we value the importance of being Nature Positive and hence rolled out an integrated campaign in June 2023 to sensitise people.”
