A Green Perspective

In today's global landscape, the effects of blind progress are apparent in the dwindling forests, climate change and ever-increasing levels of pollution. The improvements thus achieved are always short-lived as the repercussions of such lack of responsibility are bound to eliminate any illusions of progress.

True progress can only be achieved when our actions are considerate and responsible, giving rise to a state of harmony, where the benefits to human beings don't overshadow the needs of nature; a world where nurturing the natural environment is also a part of the growth of civilization, ushering in a new era of sustainable development.

Embodying this idea, RMZ Foundation incorporates a myriad of eco-friendly practices, extending into diverse areas including educational institutes, urban communities and organizations, paving the way towards a cleaner and greener tomorrow.

Sowing seeds of Environmental Concerns

Climate change is a key concern reflected through the rapid awakening of nations to the problem that we jointly face. The degradation of natural habitats and the depletion of natural resources have already started to have consequences around the globe. In order to realistically achieve success, our approach must address the issue on multiple fronts. This initiative looks to equip the next generation with knowledge and to leverage the power of the youth.

With this in mind, RMZ Foundation's Green Schools Program is aimed at imparting valuable environmental knowledge in a fun way, through a hands-on approach that leads to greater involvement and enthusiasm from the students, resulting in a better understanding of the environment and greater eco-consciousness.

The program includes the incorporation of Green Infrastructure projects in school campuses, development of a Green Curriculum and innovative Community Connect programs by students, aimed at generating awareness about the environment.

The students gain a first-hand experience of the real life problems of waste, water, sanitation and energy. The program structure has been designed to offer an integrated learning for the students with emotion, cognition and action oriented activities in the school campus and also in the community. The low cost and practical solutions to the existing problems in the schools helps creating the next generation innovative thinkers and problem solvers from the registered school campuses.

Green Homes
Program

Empowerment through Technology

Reflecting the move towards carbon neutral homes and sustainable communities, RMZ Foundation promotes sustainability through its unique and engaging Green Homes Program, designed to enable individual house owners to set current best practices as benchmarks, and create a lifestyle around them, thereby helping the whole community to become more ecofriendly.

Sustainable development relies on the optimized use of natural resources, thus minimizing the impact on the environment, especially in situations where immediate and intergenerational replication is demanded. Sustainable construction and growth has great potential and will be a decisive factor in the realization of the vision for a greener future.

OBJECTIVES

The focus will be on promoting environmental sustainability through various activities at individual homes thereby creating awareness in the community at large.

The activities will include Zero Waste campaigns, Energy Saving campaigns, promotion of the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle approach, focusing on personal and community habits redirected towards an advanced but frugal lifestyle.

The green initiatives would help the communities in promoting energy efficiency and to excel in environmental stewardship.
