India’s largest wine producer planted over 6000 saplings near Savargaon village as a part of its CSR activity. Sula Vineyards, India’s leading wine producer, took another step to reduce the effect of global warming and deforestation by planting over 6000 saplings in the Vasali mountain forest area near Savargaon Village, near Pune, Maharshara.
This is a part of Sula’s drive to plant 8,000 saplings this year in the Nashik area. Around 2000 more saplings will be planted in Dindori by the winery that has most of its farms in the area.
These saplings included native species like neem, arjun, apta, karanj, jambul, peepul etc. The brand not only planted the saplings but has also willingly undertaken the responsibility of digging pits, fencing of the entire area, and ensuring the safety of the plants for three years till they grow into self-sustainable trees.
The plantation was done following all the social distancing norms and safety protocols. The plantation drive by the employees will continue over a few days.
Sustainable practices like mass plantations, use of solar energy, water harvesting, and community service are at the heart of India’s most loved wine brand.
The plantation drive was attended by Deputy Conservator of Forests, Nashik West Shivaji Phule and CEO & Founder of Sula Vineyards Rajeev Samant.
Apart from them Sula Vineyards’ Senior Vice-President (Public Affairs) Sanjeev Paithankar and Senior Vice President (Hospitality) Monit Dhavale, AVP Trambak Oturkar also attended the drive.
“We believe in making wine keeping the future in mind. Businesses must realize the responsibility towards the environment and we take the full onus of our practices. Climate change is affecting everyone and it calls for immediate actions. Our journey towards a greener future will include many more tree plantation drives, more solar energy, and reduced water consumption, etc.” said Founder and CEO of Sula Vineyards, Rajeev Samant.
Sula Vineyards plays an active role in Nashik by not only increasing the green cover of the city but also providing livelihood to thousands of people involved with the winery and its resorts. It is also cultivating additional land across Maharashtra and Karnataka, to boost the agriculture sector.
Additionally, the company also planted 75 native trees last month on World Environment Day by a plantation drive with villagers from Savargaon.
