Corporate Social Responsibility

Execute CSR Tree Plantation Projects in Pune with Nelda

More and more Indian companies are now helping the community and the environment. And since the Companies Act 2013 has put Corporate Social Responsibility in the forefront, with a ‘comply or explain’ mandate, companies with more than 5 crores INR as net profit for a year are now participating in the CSR activities. This mandate is now becoming not just helpful to nature and the environment but to employees as human beings. However, not all NGOs can help your company achieve your goals. Nelda Foundation helps companies and organizations get the full out of their CSR funds. Since a number of reasons like lack of initiative, less understanding of the scenario, no network, etc. can hold you back, Nelda Foundation is here to help you with mobilizing your CSR funds.

Everyday in India, we’re seeing more and more trees being chopped down, and temperatures and pollution are rising quickly. Many if not most, are feeling the need for trees plantation in our country. Today, many people are getting involved in conversations about how important it is to adopt more sustainable business practices. These practices will help us reduce the carbon footprint we have been generating, and help more people understand the magnitude of environmental change.

Why is tree plantation a great choice for CSR?

CSR is the way for corporates to try to give back to society. Companies can make concerted efforts to operate in a way that enhances rather than degrade society and the environment. CSR serves two major purpose for the companies – first is giving back to the society & then creating a positive brand image.

Tree plantation is considered a selfless act that portrays a message that not only we are just giving back to society, but doing something for the earth & our future generations. This activity of CSR tree plantation creates an exceptional image of the brand that has taken this initiative & positively affects the company’s goodwill. With a CSR tree plantation project, your brand can be promoted in a unique way. Also there are less complications with tree plantation as it is a traightforward activity & not a task for your employees to actively execute.

Any company who wishes to donate trees or contribute back to society can get in touch with Nelda, where Nelda will guide you for the tree plantation. Through your corporate social responsibility activity with Nelda, it won’t be that hard a task to execute the project. Nelda will be your constant companion in the journey of tree plantation.

Planting trees is just a small step. Nurturing and conserving them is the difficult part – kudos to Nelda and its dedicated team Shubham, Jeet and others for sweating out each Sunday. Happy to play a small role in their venture this Sunday.
