At ESPL, we believe that green initiatives are the key to sow the seeds for a better future. To provide a means for our corporate partners to accomplish their environmental goals, we have devised various Green Initiatives.
With over 350 plots and 3000+ users across our facilities, Urban Green strives to create greener surroundings. With active employee involvement and adequate guidance on sowing, watering and nurturing plants, Urban Green yields up to 6,000 kg of organic vegetables annually.
We provide gardening kits with seeds, manure and saplings based on employees' choice of vegetables. The activity is not only a stress-buster but also gives employees a sense of fulfilment as they take away the vegetables grown in their plots. For support with pest and disease control as well as plant nutrition management, our teams are always available on the ground to assist the employees.
