Culture & Lifestyle Apr 22, 2014


April 22 also known as 'Earth Day' marks the annual celebration of Mother Earth and the largest fight against carbon emissions and climate change.

Every year on this day a global movement takes place where communities across the world take a stand by doing their part in making the planet a 'greener' place for generations to come. Considering how massive global migration has become, some companies are also making a stand towards creating and using eco-friendly products, hence minimizing their carbon footprint and doing their bit to protect the earth. Take a look at some of the most environmentally friendly brands that have changed the way companies operate and contribute today.

From cutting carbon emissions and sourcing energy from renewable sources, WIPRO led the activism against greenhouse gases. Ranked number 1 in the 18th edition of the ‘Greenpeace’s Guide to Greener Electronics’ and scoring high points (7.1), WIPRO was once under attack by Greenpeace for its highly toxic electronics. By producing computers free of toxics, WIPRO gave an exemplary performance in reaction to the charge brought against them. The company has also introduced an effective take-back policy on the collection and recycling of post-consumer e-waste.
