Green progress

Sustainability is at the core of all our actions


The Tata Projects, ITD Cementation and CEC Taiwan JV, involved with the Mumbai Metro Line- Phase 3 construction worth Rs.2,830 Crores had planned to include the transplantation of 84 trees and the planting of nearly 500 trees as part of the project. But the JV intends to plant three times more than the present trees that happen to fall in between the plot allotted for the project. In addition to this, the JV is also likely to maintain the flora for the first 3 years from the date of plantation in accordance with the guidelines of the authorities.

“Preservation of ecology and harmonious integration of sustainability goals in project execution, are the guiding principles of Tata Projects. Sustainability is at the core of all our actions,” said Vinayak Deshpande, MD, TATA Projects.

Mumbai Metro Line 3, Package 4, will run through the iconic neighbourhood of Siddhivinayak Temple, Dadar Station and Mahim. The entire section is underground and the JV has been mandated for the design and construction of 3 underground stations and 6 kms of associated tunnels.

To guarantee that the eco-system is maintained throughout, the company will ensure replantation in the neighbouring areas. These progressions will be undertaken actively with full commitment and within the direction of the contractual obligation. The JV is ambitious to accomplish beyond contractual requirements. The team deployed for project execution has international experience in markets like Singapore and is bound to adhere to world class methodology of construction similar to those followed across South East Asia, with a strong ethos for environmentally sustainable project development. The JV is certain to follow world-class techniques of construction in its execution in Mumbai.

Tata Projects is sensitive to biodiversity and the environment in which it operates, and takes utmost care to protect the same. This year Tata Projects at various project sites planted about 20,000 trees. A unique Rs.Green Thumb’ initiative, rolled out by company in 2016, integrated company’s tree plantation efforts while creating awareness for the environment on social media. Employee volunteering for these efforts has lasting benefits while serving a larger regional purpose. All these initiatives of Tata Projects are integrated with the overall efficient efforts of the Tata Group. Tata Projects also plan to spend its CSR budget to undertake developments of public interest in the vicinity of the project ITD Cementation, a subsidiary of Italian-Thai Development Public Company, Thailand, is a leading construction company engaged in the infra space for over eight decades. It shares similar commitment to preserving ecology and environment. CEC Taiwan too has the same commitment.

The Mumbai Metro Project itself is a much-needed one for the large number of people who commute across Mumbai through this mode of transport. It guarantees reduction of time and vehicular pollution while aiding business to thrive. It is a people’s project aimed at reducing congestion, enabling ease of travel and putting Mumbai at par with other global progressive cities like Singapore and London.
