Bhavin Turakhia, Founder & CEO at Flock : “With the current lockdown being imposed due to COVID-19, we have seen nature recuperate quickly from human exploitation that has occurred over the years. That said, this pandemic should serve as a wakeup call and push us to reflect upon the impact our choices have on our surroundings. Companies can do their bit by building sustainable technologies that not only consume less energy but also have a net-zero impact on the environment, including increased WFH as a new work model. With companies implementing work from home, the world is moving towards smart management and Flock is built with a similar concept of reducing carbon footprint of organizations by guaranteeing enhanced productivity at work that gets done virtually with lesser paperwork and reduction in employee commute and travel time. We are looking at creating a virtual environment that supports sustainability to the core, thereby helping build a sustainable future for the generations to come.”
Kishan Jain, Director, Goldmedal Electricals: “In these challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has seen cleaner air, water, cities and towns as human exploitation has been curtailed with lockdowns imposed by Government’s across the world. Climate change and environmental sustainability are one of the most pressing global challenges today and it has taken the COVID-19 crisis to show us the negative impact we have been having on the environment. We have seen mother nature heal quickly in the past couple of months with animals roaming freely on city streets, Himalayas became visible from the plains of Punjab, blue skies emerged out of New Delhi's smog and the Ganga river sparkled once again. As we observe World Environment Day, it is important that we vigilantly incorporate sustainable and eco-friendly choices in our daily lives.”
