Expressing his delight over the recognition, Vivek Datta CEO and MD, Globe Toyota, said: “For us at Globe Toyota, the environment is of prime importance and all our initiatives are designed to bring down the environmental impacts and achieve our ultimate goal of ‘Living in Harmony with Nature.’ It is a great moment for us.”
Reflecting further, Datta said: “Through our various efforts, we hope to make a positive impact on the environment and the community around us. The increasing population and dependence on industrial products are causing a water crisis and since water is a shared resource, we all have a responsibility to use it consciously and conserve it.”
