22nd April 2022 –Earth Day, it’s the day to celebrate our Blue Planet – Mother Earth! It started way back in 1970 and till today, Earth Day is the day every year when people all over planet Earth put their heads together to think and take action about how can we protect #OurOnlyHome from our own actions!
At Incepta Solutions, we believe in giving back to the environment by reducing our carbon footprint with our sustainable initiatives and work culture. During this month, we drive major earth-friendly campaigns for investing in our planet. Keeping in mind, the theme for Earth Day 2022 is ‘Invest In Our Planet’, we have taken some major steps to:
- Build healthy cities, countries, and economies
- Build a sustainable future together
- It is #OurOnlyHome
How #InceptaInnovators are contributing
At Incepta Solutions we take our responsibility towards the environment seriously and keep participating in activities supporting a sustainable future not just on Earth Day but throughout the year.
1. Global Donation Campaign to reduce landfills
Landfills are harmful to the environment. The US has over 3000 active landfills and the average landfill size is 600 acres. This means around 1,800,000 acres of habitat have been lost. Landfills emit gases such as Methane, CO2, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, etc. contributing to Global Warming. They also cause odor, smoke, noise, bugs, and water supply contamination.
We have organized Global Donation Campaign for Earth Day on 22nd April 2022. Our #InceptaInnovators all across the globe are contributing to this donation drive by visiting their nearest donation center and donating old clothes/home decor/toys/books etc. to reduce landfills and be a part of saving the planet.
We were able to donate 100 clothes, 10 toys, and a few office items! – promoting Reuse and Repurposing!
2. Planting trees with Aloo Foundation
Deforestation has been happening at an alarming rate. Here are some latest facts about Global Deforestation–
- Every second, a forest the size of a football field is cut down.
- 14,800 square miles of forest are lost every year. This is roughly the same size as Switzerland.
- In 2019, approximately 9 million acres of rainforests were destroyed.
- Deforestation causes approximately $2 trillion to $4.5 trillion in lost biodiversity each year.
- 4.2% of the world’s tree cover loss was between 1990 and 2020.
Incepta planted 200 Mangrove trees with the Aloo Foundation and were able to offset 61,600 Co2 Kgs.
The planet benefited from these trees by –
- Producing oxygen
- Removing 61 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere
- Create an ecosystem for flora and fauna
- Prevent Soil erosion
- Create employment for local communities
- Mangroves, seagrass beds, and coral reefs work as a single system that keeps coastal zones healthy
- Mangroves provide essential habitat for thousands of species
3. Planting trees on behalf of our clients
A part of the revenue generated at Incepta Solutions goes towards investing in the planet. We recently planted 800 trees on behalf of four of our Fortune 500 clients in association with Evertreen, an organization that enables citizens to plant real trees online and guarantees their survival.
With this initiative, we were able to offset 120, 000Co2 kgs from the environment which takes us a step closer to a greener world.
