As part of the commencement of Aries Group’s 25th-anniversary celebrations, its Founder and CEO, Sir Sohan Roy, announced the Go Green initiative. On World Environment Day, the Aries Management introduced Energy Index, a new feature in their efficiency management software (EFFISM), to analyze the Personal/Division’s contribution towards reducing Carbon Foot Print. The management has also announced a cash prize of Dhs. 50,000 to Best improving individuals or divisions of the company.
On this occasion, Sir Sohan Roy stated, “Green thinking has always been a part of our company ethos, and our very first step towards achieving this was ‘paperless’ Operations. It was an uphill task, but we became paperless in record time. Time and again, Aries has pushed ahead with the number of measures to reduce carbon footprint, and we will continue to do so, as we understand that Going Green is not a choice anymore, it’s a necessity.”
The Carbon footprint will be analyzed based on Total Engine CC (1% reduction for every 100cc increase), Average Mileage (1% reduction for every 1km lower mileage), Annual Distance traveled (1% reduction for every additional 1000km), Solar power generation (% Reduction applicable based on solar usage), and traveling distance of an employee to the office (10% reduction for every extra 1km).
