  • (1888PressRelease) April 23, 2013 - Earth Day is an annual event celebrated in more than 175 countries. The name and concept of Earth Day was pioneered by John McConnell in 1969 at a UNESCO Conference which was later re-founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson. This movement began in 1970 and now we have landed up in the 43rd year of the Earth Day. Team PBC came together to celebrate the Earth Day 2013 by supporting the cause: "Protect our environment".

    There is an increase in the number of floods, landslides, melting glaciers, warmer water, droughts, heat waves, health adversities etc. The reason behind these is devastating 'Global Warming' which has affected our environment; hence, the Face of our Climate. PBC recognizes the repercussions of these environmental challenges that are multiplying every second. On the occasion of Earth Day, PBC had invited Mr. Krishan Kalra, Trustee- TCPI and Mr. Aditya Pundir, Country Head- TCPI to share their knowledge.

    Mr. Kalra emphasized on the measures that are small yet play an important role in curbing the crisis that our Earth is facing in the current scenario. He remarked that, "We are not required to do anything different to show our concern for our planet. Instead, we can just start keeping a close check on our regular activities by following the principles of Reduce, Refuse, Reuse and Recycle. By doing this, we can get to know how much we are contributing to the wastage and to the pollution. We can begin doing this right from our home."

    Mr. Pundir gave an informative presentation on 'Climate Crisis'. He made everyone aware of the effects of global warming and how it has turned our climatic conditions upside down. He explained the relation between the rise of temperature and climatic hardships. He said, 'by adopting sustainable ways, we can create a flawless face of the climate '.

    Followed by this, Barun Aggarwal, Director-Sales and Marketing- PBC gave a presentation on "Clean Air" emphasizing on Indoor Air Quality. He remarked, "Indoor Air Pollution works as a silent killer and is typically 5-10 times worse than ambient air. He also stressed upon the fact PBC when compared to vis-a vis to other buildings, it has better indoor air quality. He also mentioned that if a person is in the PBC building for 8-10 working hours then there is a 42 percent of probability of 1 percent of increase in blood oxygen saturation level."

    PBC also organized a plantation drive in Nehru Place Greens, wherein the guests and the team members planted saplings adding to the green factor. Along with this, PBC also organized, "Nanhi Chaan"- a CSR initiative wherein we celebrated the birth of a girl child in the PBC Family. The parent-employees planted a sapling on this occasion, who then nurtures and looks after it in the same manner as they would look after their children.

    Earth is the shelter of living population. It has opened up its resources for us so that we live life comfortably. However, it seems as a paradox that we who need earth more for survival, have become the cause of its destruction. With the motto of celebrating every day as Earth day, Team PBC takes the pledge to make a difference to make the Face of our climate better.
