Rutuparna Foundation: Creating awareness & protecting the environment for more than 10 Years

Rutuparna Foundation

The major goal of the Rutuparna Foundation is to raise awareness about environmental degradation in all aspects and to encourage the use of urban green spaces. The foundation accepts grants, donations, and assistance from public bodies, corporations, companies, or individuals, trusts to achieve the organisation’s objectives and to manage efficient, effective, and permissible fund flow and fund utilisation following the stated objectives.

Kesari Infrabuild Private Limited has now almost a decade of consulting, design value, and EPC work expertise. In the sphere of water, wastewater treatment, and solid waste management for industry and habitation, the company went on to build an EPC. They have partnered with several top local and worldwide alliances to supply innovative and long-term solutions to its valued clients.

Urban Forestry (A major project in a sub-discipline of forestry)

KIPL has worked on forestry projects by constructing forests using scientific methods that are Smart, 100% Organic, Wild, and Self-Sustaining, which helps restore the Earth's Delicate Ecosystem in its unique way. Miyawaki Technique is one of the approaches used in forestry. The method involves planting two to four trees per square metre. Miyawaki forests grow in two to three years and are self-sustaining. They help lower temperatures in concrete heat islands, reduce air and noise pollution, attract local birds and insects, and create carbon sinks. The method advocates the planting of diverse native species, thereby bringing in more biodiversity in comparison to monoclonal plantations We can create a green patch of Urban Forest by closely planting Multilayer and Multispecies plantation using the Miyawaki technique of forestation. This would allow citizens to get a forest feel in the city area.

With the present global climate change scenario, every business should contribute to the mitigation of these effects. The company also helps the corporates connect with suitable environmental engineering and consulting firms to meet their CSR goals. The Rutuparna Foundation's major goals are

  1. To raise awareness about environmental pollution and degradation, as well as its effects on human health, social structures, and economies.
  2. To encourage initiatives aimed at reducing air pollution, water pollution, soil and groundwater pollution, noise pollution, deforestation, and waste management, among other things.
  3. To encourage the use of urban green areas and to have an impact on biodiversity.

Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) is currently working on a project for Miyawaki Plantation. MCGM has launched the Miyawaki tree-planting campaign, which has resulted in the planting of approximately 5 lakh trees around Mumbai. Rutuparna / KIPL is working on the Miyawaki plantation project in Mumbai's Eastern Suburbs, where around two lakhs twenty-one thousand trees will be planted across approximately 74,000 square metres of land in 27 places.
