Extending its CSR & Social Upliftment activities, Nayara Energy led an initiative to support the cause of reforestation.
The campaign was branded as Seed Ball Initiative. Through this initiative, Nayara Energy successfully planted 2000 trees & 300 seed balls to revive local ecology. In accordance with the local village communities around the refinery, Nayara took an initiative to convert 183 acres of wasteland to fodder land. With the support of its employees, Nayara expanded on the initiative to help restore the nearby ecosystem using seed balls and reforestation.

This comes right after Project Tushti, wherein Nayara partnered with the Gujrat government to tackle malnutrition. The company which operates the country’s second-largest single-site refinery in the region has played a pivotal role in improving the quality of life of the communities through several sustainable development projects in areas of health and nutrition, education and the environment.
