27 acres. 40,000 sq. m of green cover!
Our Chennai Headquarters at Manapakkam is acknowledged as an 'Outstanding Corporate Green Campus. 'Spread over 1.44 lakh sq. m., the safe, smart and solar power-lit hub has 40,000 sq. m. of green cover featuring award-winning concrete structures replete with green features.
Across schools, colleges, local townships, public spaces … Let the green cover increase!
The dedicated Green Hands Nursery in our HQ campus, operated in partnership with ISHA Foundation, is to create additional green cover. Over the last 5 years, an army of 'green volunteers' have nurtured and planted 3,00,000+ saplings in various public places - like schools, colleges, hospitals, and local townships. Continuing the green tradition, the Janmotsav & Vanmotsav programmes are recognized as green birthday initiatives and all L&T-ites are invited to plant saplings from the Green Hands Nursery. A dedicated team of more than 30 volunteers and a gardener nurture more than 3000 saplings at any given point of time, considering seasonal changes.
