As an environmentally conscious corporate citizen, General Motors India celebrated World Environment Day on 5 June 2015, by organising free Pollution Check-Up Camps across its dealerships and facilities including the Talegaon and Halol manufacturing facilities and General Motors Technical Centre India (GMTC-I).
Chevrolet customers nationwide were invited to their nearest authorised dealerships and free pollution check was undertaken post which Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificates were handed over to customers whose vehicles met the emission requirements. A tree sapling was also given to each of the customers visiting Chevrolet dealerships on the occasion in order to highlight the importance of conserving the environment. Tree plantation drives were also undertaken at GM India’s facilities on the special day to spread the ‘Go Green’ message internally.
World Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations’ campaign for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. It was established by the United Nations General Assembly to mark the opening of the 1972 Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. Over the years it has grown to be a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated by stakeholders in over 100 countries. It also serves as a day for people to do something positive for the environment, inspiring individual actions to create a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.
