The IHCL did it once again! After taking forward its journey towards a sustainable future last month they have conducted the plantation and distribution drive of 4000+ saplings across its various properties in Goa.
On the occasion of the world environment day, the Indian Hotels Company (IHCL), one of Goa’s largest hospitality players has continued its journey towards sustainable social impact initiatives under the ESG framework “Paathya” based on this year’s theme “Only One Earth”. The company has distributed more than 4000 saplings in its various properties spread across the state of Goa.
Speaking on the occasion of the world environment day Mr. Vincent Ramos, Senior vice president – of IHCL Goa spoke on the need for implementation of such an initiative. “It is crucial for each of us to work towards every aspect of the triple planetary emergency in order to maintain the balance with nature,” he said adding that IHCL’s social and business responsibility is in their DNA. “Under the Paathya initiative“, IHCL will continue to lead its journey towards sustainable practices in a pursuit to create excellence and benchmark in the tourism industry of Goa.”
The IHCL has also undertaken the tangible measures under Paathya’s six key pillars, I.e. Environmental Stewardship, Social Responsibility, Excellence in Governance, Preserving Heritage, Value Chain Transformation, and Sustainable Growth and they have set the goal for a long-term and short-term basis to fulfill the same by 2030.
Under the Paathya, IHCL will continue its journey towards creating a better tomorrow with multiple initiatives including Earth Check Certification, Waste Management, Green Footprint, EV Charging, Energy Conservation, Livelihood Impact, and Heritage.
The term Paathya (पथ्य) has been derived from a Sanskrit term, inferring a path, that aims to lead positive change guided by IHCL’s core values of Trust of all stakeholders, Awareness around the needs of our ecosystem, and Joy at heart.
