September 10, 2022

Allcargo Logistics in collaboration with renowned environmental activist Chinu Kwatra conducted a beach clean-up drive at Dadar Beach on September 3, 2022. Around 200 employees picked up one ton of plastic waste which was sent for recycling.

The beach recycling campaign is part of the group’s ESG initiative, Allcargo Greens, which aims to preserve the environment, reduce waste and use renewable energy sources.

The beach cleanup campaign aims to restore the beauty of the beaches while improving the coastal and marine ecosystems and enhancing the standards of marine life. The main objective of this year’s beach clean-up drive is to restore the beaches in Mumbai after the ongoing Ganpati Visarjan in Mumbai.

Commenting on the initiative, Mr. Shashi Kiran Shetty, Chairman, Allcargo Logistics, said “The beach clean-up drive at Dadar is a part of our mission to give back to nature. Our result-oriented actions reflect the strong core values of the group, guiding and motivating us to do our bit for the environment and society. The clean-up drive will raise awareness among people on the importance of eliminating plastic pollution from the marine ecosystem. I would like to thank my colleague for their enthusiastic participation. We are grateful to the authorities for their support to make it a success. We’ll continue to work towards encouraging all to care for the environment we live in and embrace eco-friendly practices to build a greener future for the generations to come.”

Allcargo Greens is an initiative by Allcargo Logistics, to conserve the environment, reduce waste and use renewable energy sources. It is a collective group effort to work towards a greener future and become transforming agents in building a sustainable environment. Allcargo Greens in the past organised beach clean-up activities at Juhu beach and Dadar beach in Mumbai with the active participation from Allcargo Logistics employees and other partners.
