Sustainability and green warriors

Bill Gates famously blogged: “We need an energy miracle… According to US government estimates, the world is going to need a lot more energy in the coming decades—an increase of 50 per cent or more between 2010 and 2040. But today, our biggest sources of energy are also big sources of carbon dioxide, which is causing climate change.” 

Mr Gates was perhaps one of the most prominent personalities to call on governments across the world to invest in smart technologies and sustainability. 

Technology today intersperses all aspects of our lives; it is an integral part of day-to-day operations. As the world limps towards a new normal amidst lingering fear of the global pandemic, the human species is learning an important lesson—of economic and social sustainability, and green technology. New-age green warriors are leading the way.

Growth drivers:

According to an Allied Market Research study, the global green technology and sustainability market size valued at $10.32 billion in 2020, is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 21.9 per cent, to approximately $74.64 billion by 2030. 

Importantly, 74 per cent decision-makers involved in environmental sustainability initiatives in the US, are betting on emerging technologies, notes research firm Concentrix. 

Moreover, market advisory firm BCG which examined three hundred corporate sustainability initiatives in 2020 made some interesting observations:

  • Eighty-five enterprises launched sustainability initiatives that had a positive impact on both: society and business value. These were bracketed under the sustainable business model innovation (SBM-I).
  • More than 40 companies from SBM-I used innovative products and processes; of these, 20 enterprises underlined value chains, to address the root cause of environmental and societal needs. 

The findings are in sync with Amplo Global values and mission to help enterprises obtain their sustainability goals via green technology, along with green warriors.

While the enterprises are launching sustainability initiatives at various levels, it is the customers who are driving it. For instance, conscious customers are raising concerns about the eco-damage a product can cause or how a product could be recycled. They are the Green Warriors, and women in general, lead the pack!

The Green Warriors:

As mentioned earlier, women are leading the sustainability battle from the front. They are actively using tech tools in their journey to make the world a clean, green environment. 

Take for instance, Dr. Archana Chaudhari, Assistant Professor at Dr. D. Y. Patil Institute of Engineering, recipient of the AI for Earth grant funding from Microsoft. For a research project, she encouraged utility companies to deploy smart meters and use data analytics to ramp up or wind down energy production across metropolitan cities in India. 

Similarly, EC Electronics is using predictive analytics in its commercial fridges—data from which enables consumers to monitor and optimize energy efficiency. 

Schneider Electric has seen a major transformation. From developer-installer of industrial electrical equipment, the global enterprise is now one of the leaders in efficiency-as-a-service, and generating revenues by reducing carbon emissions, thereby creating greater social and environmental impact. 

Technology is enabling a leading European minerals company to create an end-to-end model for an integrated energy management solution. Through cloud-enabled data platforms, AI, and advanced analytics, the company has reported approximately 10 per cent energy savings, translating into millions of Euros. 

Agriculture is one of the most aggressive users of technology. Fertilizer producer Yara is using IoT and digitally-enabled smart agriculture solutions to reduce the need for chemical fertilizers. The company is also building a database of next-generation regenerative crop-nutrition solutions.

Besides, the sector is at an advanced stage in the use of drones and other technologies from harvesting vehicles to sensors in irrigation systems to reduce waste and increase yields.

Smartphone apps are also playing a vital role in sustainable living. With a rise in demand for organic products, consumers are privy to information about the origin, availability, authenticity and compliance certificates of the product and the procedure before buying a product. 

Technology as an enabler:

Enterprises are using technology to draw their sustainable road maps. At the forefront in the boardrooms are the CEOs, CFOs, CSOs and CIOs—the essential CXO brigade, which is influencing a lot of organizations to use technology as a tool to meet their sustainability goals. 

  1. AI, big data and advanced analytics: Enterprises are using these technologies to generate data and develop insights on the environmental and social impact of a product, service, or process. They are using the data to fine tune offerings, engage customers, and enhance performance and productivity.

Additionally, enterprises are using big data tools to improve overall efficiency. According to CEOs interviewed by various tech journals, apart from risk aversion and impact on business revenues, data from their business intelligence and analytics tools helped them to gauge ecological impact and calculate possible environmental risks and initiate remedial actions. 

  1. Internet of Things: IoT is enabling enterprises to monitor the activity of all devices under its control. They are now using intelligence to reduce energy waste and improve the life cycle of their products, thereby improving the TCO/RoI. 

All said and done, naysayers have challenged the role of technology in terms of sustainability. 

Challenges:

While technology has been a great enabler of sustainable initiative among enterprises large, SMBs and MSMEs, it has also acted as a damper. 

  1. Technology transfer: It is crucial to transfer global tech upgrades from the developed to the developing nations. The gap in time can delay a consistent effort towards a global sustainability goal. 
  2. From old to new: It is oft said that technology and tech tools should be upgraded in a timely manner. For electronic or electrical items need more energy as it ages. Secondly, new tech investment is capital intensive, and so the overall RoI/TCO calculator may not work in favour of sustainable initiatives.
  3. People: Sustainability initiatives are most often led from the front. It is important for CXOs to emphasize the need for sustainability and promote sustainable initiatives not only during town hall talks, but also during board meetings and during peer-to-peer reviews. The approach must be top-down!

Mitigating the challenges

Sustainability has become an integral part of conversations at all levels. The push from the UN that it is important to narrow the emission gap by 2030 and collaborate with the private sector to fill the rest of the gap, is an indicator of new strategies.

Secondly, entrepreneurs should give different organizations within their enterprise the right to own a sustainability initiative. Ownership of a cause as important as sustainability backed by suitable numbers to showcase in terms of carbon emissions or power savings certainly provides the much-needed boost among employees and increases participation at all levels. 

Conclusion:

Many enterprises across industry verticals have sustainability on a MUST HAVE Agenda. They are now scoping out green tech warriors who are willing to walk the extra mile and to contain climate change—for a better today, a better tomorrow!

Journey so far

Our Story

Amplo Global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) wing started its journey with the purpose of helping communities for transformation through a holistic approach. The focus is to create an eco-system leading to a self-sustainable value chain. Amplo Global’s social entrepreneurial mindshare along with various social impact start-ups are making a mark towards a better planet to live in.

Our first initiative has been shaking hands with Ahana, the first ray of the sun, a non-profit organization of Kolkata, West Bengal. We have been associating with Ahana from its inception, mentoring and guiding it, assisting to collaborate with various government and non-governmental organizations to conduct different programs related to empowerment and revival of traditional forms of art which are losing their relevance in this fast-growing world.

Amplo Global CSR & Ahana together took an initiative in Surulia village of Purulia district in West Bengal, to rejuvenate the traditional form of the art of making artefacts from molten zinc or brass or copper. We organized workshops where women artisans of Malohar community were given training for learning this art. Moreover, we also took necessary actions for official documentation of these till date unidentified group, so that they get the minimum government benefits allotted for them.

Knowledge development and enablement towards sustainability has been a key goal for AG CSR. To achieve this, AG CSR has planned to take up various projects. One such is conducting a workshop on ‘Gender equality gender justice: the rightful way towards sustainable social development’ with the students of Berhampore Girls’ College at Murshidabad. A one-day workshop has been organized with almost 300 students where a holistic vision on gender, sex and sexuality has been imparted to them. Along with that, they were given knowledge on relevant legal as well as social rights prevalent for them and also against cyber bullying and stalking. They were made aware of the rights available for them which will help them to develop social sustainability to deal in future.

Another knowledge building program has been taken up by AG CSR team in collaboration with a Kolkata-based non-government organization, Kolkata Sanved, working in the field with the survivors for almost twenty years, using Dance Movement therapy for psycho-social rehabilitation and social transformation. Kolkata Sanved wants to prepare a digital archive, consisting of the huge data of their functioning for last two decades, that will be a source of information and knowledge for any individual/organization who wants to work in this field in future. Amplo Global CSR team is supporting KS to curate and host digital archive representing Kolkata Sanved’s works and achievements since its inception.

Empowerment of women and children from the marginalized community and enabling them towards sustainability has always been the major goal of Amplo Global CSR wing. In order to achieve this, AG CSR team has been meandering its path through different projects. The collaboration with organizations like Dishari and Samabedan has been done with this target in mind. Though at the initial stage, AG CSR team is working with these two organizations to strengthen its structure with technical support. This includes helping them to finalize vision-mission statements for strategic management, developing proposals for mobilizing resources and guide them with proper implementation plan.

Along with empowerment of women, AG CSR also works towards the revival and preservation of traditional form of art. A very comprehensive program has been taken up by AG CSR team in association with Ahana and INTACH and with full-fledged support and cooperation of HSWS in the Kalimpong district of West Bengal. Workshops have been arranged in which women of the hills, having knowledge and skill of weaving in traditional handlooms. They were given training on new techniques and methods by professional designer cum trainer, whereby they were taught how to improve their skill and make more variety of products which have huge demand in the market. The aim is to showcase the right path in front of these women which will help them to reach the goal of sustainable livelihood in future.

Revival of traditional art

In a growing technology-run and industrialized world, people are increasingly forgetting the traditional crafts and moving towards new innovation. Due to this, artisans are moving to alternative income generation methods, for instance — daily wage labour and farming; and art is losing its grip. Preserving and protecting the skills and knowledge of traditional crafts is a growing challenge.

Amplo Global CSR team has taken this vow to take necessary initiatives to protect this cause of revival and conservation of traditional form of art and also the artisans, who are compelled to look for alternative livelihood options due to lack of the knowledge of marketability and demand of the products they create.

Kalimpong

 

TRAINING THE WOMEN OF HILLY REGION TO BECOME FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT

Earning a livelihood has always been difficult in the hilly regions. Women in the rural areas of the hilly regions in Kalimpong do not get proper opportunities and as a result find it hard to become financially independent. Amplo Global CSR in collaboration with Ahana Foundations and INTACH and with the initiative and support of Hill Social Welfare Society (HSWS) have taken up the program for intervention with marginalized and vulnerable women from the hill tribes of Darjeeling district in the northern part of West Bengal, with the purpose: –

 

  • To empower and collectivize the women living in the Lopchu and Peshok tea gardens of Rangli-Rangliot district of Darjeeling through SHGs
  • To train these women into weaving dresses, shawls, stoles using the dying local traditional weaving techniques using traditional motifs.
  • To help them with design inputs so that the products can find a larger market outside the local niche market.
  • To connect the local community of artisans to the online marketing platforms and various state emporiums like Biswa Bangla or artisan’s forum like Dastkaar etc.
  • To establish self- sustaining alternative livelihoods for poor women so that they are capable of coming out of rural poverty as well as the familial control and live a life with dignity.


They have already conducted workshops in two phases where professional trainer has been appointed to give training inputs and guidance to these women artisans to nurture and enhance their already existing weaving skill and develop expertise so that they can manufacture better quality products which have got high market demand.


At present, the AG CSR team is trying to organize for more such workshops so that increased number of women can be benefitted from the program.

 

 

 

Purulia

 

COMMITMENT TO PROVIDE IDENTITY TO THE WOMEN ARTISANS OF MALOHAR COMMUNITY IN PURULIA, WEST BENGAL

Malohar or Malakar is a caste-community that can be found in several blocks in Purulia, who are very less in number and scattered all across the district. Malohars has the long-cherished tradition of making artefacts for daily use as well as artistic production out of molten zinc or brass or copper. The artefacts they produce include ‘Sher-pai” (a measuring cup), Diyas or lamps, bells for the domestic animals etc. However, the practice currently is on wane as there is no demand except occasionally. The women, though know the art of making them, don’t practice as they are not aware of what to do with this skill.

The Malohars are extremely poor with little or no citizenship documents although they are residing in the villages where we found them (in Bonbohal in Purulia 1 block or Raghunathpur in Manbazar 2) since quite a long time. That is why they do not receive any benefits from government programs.

 

Amplo CSR Team and Ahana have joined hands together to help in the empowerment of women artisans of Malohar community in Surulia village of Purulia district, West Bengal, who are struggling to get a dignified livelihood. In order to preserve the heritage of these lost artforms, our CSR team and Ahana are working diligently towards mentoring these families through the following actions:

  • Resource identification and analysis to conduct training workshops for the artisans.
  • Creating opportunities for group empowerment and personal leadership.
  • Providing financial literacy education for women with special emphasis on developing bank linkages.
  • Providing skill training that reflects job market realities. Link with the private sector for placement assistance. Partner with product development and marketing agencies to ensure sustainability of livelihood programs.
  • Encouraging women to work cooperatively in the development of sustainable micro enterprises that will be viable in the current market.

Initiatives have also been taken on their behalf to get their official identification done which will enable them access their documents and government benefits that come with it. It will also ensure their children to get educational and nutritional aids in schools.

Ahana

Ahana is an Indian, voluntary, not for profit organization. Ahana, literally meaning the first ray of the Sun, is dedicated towards uplift, welfare and empowerment of women and girls living in harmful and precarious situations. Women who have been subjected to either torture or discrimination can’t utilize the proper resources they have, for their own growth. Ahana is dedicated towards enabling those women and girls by creating a conducive ecosystem where they can realize their potential to the fullest. Ahana envisions a world free of discrimination and violence against women and girls where every woman and girl will get equal opportunity to thrive in society as an equal human being.


Amplo Global CSR team has initiated partnership with Ahana to establish a mutually beneficial community collaboration. AG’s role in this arrangement is to mentor, train and build capacity of Ahana in successful execution of welfare projects. Further, AG will also provide technical, financial and human resources towards development of Ahana’s programs.

 

AG CSR team has been associated with Ahana since its inception, helping it to grow at every step, guiding and mentoring it in planning, implementation and execution. AG CSR team has already started their journey with Ahana by helping in multiple projects, starting from revival of traditional form of art in Purulia and Kalimpong, to empowerment of women in Kalimpong, and so on.

INTACH

Headquartered in New Delhi, the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) was founded in 1984 with the vision to lead heritage awareness and conservation in India. Over last 31 years, INTACH is performing its task of preservation of traditional art and culture of India across the country through over 170 chapters. One of the important missions of INTACH is to provide expertise in the field of conservation, restoration and preservation of specific works of art, and encourage capacity-building by developing skills through training programs, initiate collaborations and generate sponsorships for conservation and educational projects.


Amplo Global CSR team got associated with INTACH as the missions of both are aligned with each other. AG CSR aims not only to preserve the traditional form of different arts, but also thrives to revive and develop it to make it sustainable in the long run. AG CSR has already collaborated with INTACH to conduct few projects to meet this target.

Our Aspirations

Introduction


Amplo Global firmly believes in the principles of social, economic and educational equity-based development. It has developed its CSR policy framework that is aligned with UNSDG 2030. AGI recognizes and acknowledges the fact that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a company’s commitment to its stakeholders to conduct business in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner, whereby organizations serve the interests of society by taking responsibility for the impact of their activities.
