WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY- 5th June 2018

“Beat Plastic Pollution”

“Let’s declare war against one time usable plastics”

World Environment Day, commemorated each year on 5th June, is one of the principal medium through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances attention and action. World Environment Day (WED) established by United Nations General Assembly in 1972, to mark the opening of the Stockhome Conference on the human environment. Another resolution, adopted by the General Assembly the same day, led to the creation of UNEP.

WED objective is to give a human face to environmental issues such as the depletion of the ozone layer, depletion of natural resources, desertification and global warming and empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development; promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards environmental issues; and advocate partnership which will ensure all nations and peoples enjoy a safer and more prosperous future.

It’s time! Once again UNEP seeks to make the biggest global call and mobilization for action on 5 June, World Environment Day (WED).  ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’, the theme for World Environment Day 2018. This year,  India will be hosting the global World Environment Day celebrations on 5 June 2018.

Our world is swamped by harmful plastic waste. Every year, more than 8 million tonnes end up in the oceans. Microplastics in the seas now outnumber stars in our galaxy. From remote islands to the Artic, nowhere is untouched. If present trends continue, by 2050 our oceans will have more plastic than fish.

Many of the Earth’s ecosystems are nearing critical tipping points of depletion or irreversible change, pushed by high population growth and economic development. By 2050, if current consumption and production patterns remain the same and with a rising population expected to reach 9.6 billion, we will need three planets to sustain our way of life. Living well within planetary boundaries is the most promising strategy for ensuring a healthy future.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged Indians to not use low –grade polythene, plastic and try to curb the negative impact of plastic pollution on environment, wildlife and health. He said “If we shall protect the environment, our future generations will reap the benefits.”

On World Environment Day, the message is simple: Reject single-use plastic. Refuse what you can’t re-use.

Plastic Pollution facts:

  • Every year the world uses 500 billion plastic bags
  • Each year, at least 8 million tonnes of plastic end up in the oceans, the equivalent of a full garbage truck every minute.
  • In the last decade, we produced more plastic than in the whole last century
  • 50 percent of the plastic we use is single-use or disposable
  • We buy 1 million plastic bottles every minute
  • Plastic makes up 10% of all of the waste we generate

Management of M/s India Glycols Ltd (CM-UA-06) . has taken foremost steps in the field of Environment with Sustainable Development:

  • Taken foremost steps by making effective action plans & continual environmental improvements with considering Life Cycle Perspective and sustaining Environmental Management System with consecutive 4th certification cycle with the revised ISO 14001:2015 standard
  • Sustains ISO 50001:2011 (Energy Management System) certificates by making effective action plans & continual energy improvements action plans from last two certification cycles.
  • Signatory of Responsible Care Guiding Principles, declaring "Key Performance Indicators (KPI)" including key environmental parameters, every year, and processing for RC 14001:2015 certification.
  • Committed for continuous Water reduction through Water conservation approaches and following 4Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover)
  • Continuously assessing the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the products in support to provide batter option to customers than adopting Conventional Petro route approaches.

CELEBRATIONS

India Glycols Limited has committed to organizing and promoting the World Environment Day celebrations through a series of engaging activities and events generating strong public interest and participation.

 

  • Children awareness program with drawing, painting and quiz competition.
  • Rain water harvesting system inaugural
  • Water conservation booklet inaugural
  • Clean the world program
  • Street play to give message environment conservation.
  • Rewarding employees for their active participation in environment conservation program through slogan, cartoon & selfie competitions.

 

Together, we can do lot for a cleaner, greener world. We are committed to making Planet Earth a cleaner and greener place”.

 

Every one of us should participate by taking action at our home and workplace for Energy Conservation, Use of Renewable Energy, Water Conservation & Refuse One Time Usable Plastic as well as Recycling and Clean-up campaigns/Housekeeping “on the job”/ “off the job”. This contribution will help to save ecosystem, resources and natural processes that will let our future generations to survive in healthy and prosperous atmosphere.

“If you can’t reuse it refuse it”

FIRE   SERVICE  DAY

14th April 2017

This year’s theme:

"FIREMAN - YOUR PARTNER FOR SAVING LIFE AND PROPERTY"

??????? - ???? ?? ??????? ?? ????? ??? ???? ????

 On this day, the 14th of April, we observe the Fire Service Day every year and the same is commemorated throughout the country. This is to pay homage to the brave firemen who lost their lives fighting the fire on 14th April, 1944 which broke out in the vessel S.S. Ford Stikine berthed at Bombay Docks. This is in commemoration and condolence to remember the brave firemen who provide capacious services for noble cause. Let us remember those great souls and pay homage to them who have laid down their lives to save the precious life of somebody else.

In India fires account for a majority of deaths and loss or damage of property worth enormous amount of money. According to the statistics  more than 25000 incidents are attributed to fires resulting in death, injury and huge loss of property every year. Almost all fires begin in a small way. If the fire is controlled and fought at the very incipient stage then the catastrophe that results from major fires and the aftermath of such disasters can be avoided. 

 Awareness of the inherent hazards is the most important aspect towards prevention of fire. People play a vital role in fire prevention. We can also play active role in inculcating the awareness amongst the common people about the disastrous outcome of fire to save invaluable life and precious property.

 Let us take an oath on this very auspicious day that we shall do our best, both at work-front and social front, which will contribute to the cause of fire prevention.

Pledges for Green Life Style & Sustainable Development

“ You can make a difference:– individual actions, when multiplied, can make an exponential difference to the planet!

(Also look into the enclosed file on “ Pledges for Environmental Improvements”)

   

“Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.”

  

World environment day annual celebration campaign was started to address the huge environmental issues like wastage and losses of food, deforestation, increasing global warming and so many. Every year's celebration is planned according to the particular theme and slogan of the year to bring effectiveness in the campaign all through the world. We want you to be a part of the growing voice that calls upon saving our environment for the future generations. Take this as an opportunity to green up your lifestyle.

 

Theme for the Campaign:

It is celebrated to successfully get carbon neutrality, focusing on the forest management, reducing greenhouse effects, promoting bio-fuels production by planting on degraded lands, use of hydro-power to enhance electricity production, encourage common public to use solar water heaters, energy production through solar sources, developing new drainage systems, promoting coral reefs and mangroves restoration in order to get prevented from flooding and erosion including other ways of environmental preservation.

 

This year’s World Environment Day global celebrations will convene under the theme resource efficiency and sustainable consumption and production (SCP) within the context of the planet's regenerative capacity. The slogan, “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care”, was chosen through voting on social media. Italy will serve as the host of the 2015 event and the global WED celebrations will be organised at the Milan Expo. Celebrations at the Milan Expo will complement the Expo's theme, ‘Feeding the Planet—Energy for Life', which will showcase ideas, solutions and technology to help ensure healthy, safe and sufficient food for all while respecting the planet and its carrying capacity.

 

How do we adapt to conserve Our Planet & Consume resources with Care:

 

Conserve Energy for Sustainable Development is thinking in terms of creating less impact on our environment. There are many simple and manageable things that we can do every day which add up to the huge change. Governments and businesses around the world can continue to work together to clean up carbon pollution and reduction in GHG emissions and work towards a clean-energy economy. Opportunities exist to promote more energy efficient homes and businesses and to improve industrial practice.

 

Businesses, which use significant amounts of electricity for heating and cooling, lighting, and operating equipment, can make a difference by measuring their carbon footprint and using energy efficient machinery, for example, individuals can also help cut carbon emissions through simple actions like being smart about energy use at work and at home, carpooling or driving fuel-efficient cars. Oil, gas and coal – all fossil fuels – are the greatest source of humanity’s CO2. Individuals, by being more conscious of their environmental footprint, can help reduce the GHGs released into the already warming atmosphere.

 

Energy Conservation

 

In 2002 the motor vehicle stock in OECD countries was 550 million vehicles (75% of which were personal cars). A 32% increase in vehicle ownership is expected by 2020. At the same time, motor vehicle kilometres are projected to increase by 40% and global air travel is projected to triple in the same period.

·         We can shift our consumption patterns towards goods and services with lower energy and material intensity without compromising quality of life.

·         Households consume 29% of global energy and consequently contribute to 21% of resultant CO2 emissions.The cost of renewable energy is increasingly competitive with that derived from fossil fuels. One-fifth of the world’s final energy consumption in 2013 was from renewables.

·         Globally, energy consumption grew most quickly in the transport and service sectors, driven by rising passenger travel and freight transport, and a rapid expansion in the service economy.

Energy is fundamental to the quality of our lives. Today, we are totally dependent on an abundant and uninterrupted supply of energy. It is our duty to save it for the coming generations.

  1. Unplug your electronics (DVD players, TVs, Cell phone chargers, etc.) when you are not using them.
  2. Changing to LED lights not only saves electricity but it also reduces the amount of waste because they do not need to be replaced as often.
  3. Buying local products, saves petroleum and supports local business growth- Less carbon foot prints
  4. Turn off the lights when you leave the room.
  5. Clean the condenser coils at the back of your refrigerator, once in a year for better productivity.
  6. Buy energy efficient appliances (look for the energy star label).
  7. Cover pots on the stove to avoid losing excess heat and wasting energy.
  8. Switch off your Television or Computer, rather than leave it on stand by.
  9. Check the air pressure in your car tyres since under-inflated tyres reduce fuel efficiency.
  10. Don’t charge your cell phones overnight.
  11. Use rechargeable batteries.
  12. Buy solar: Everything from calculators to radios are available in solar these days, as well as solar panels to heat your hot water heater!
  13. Opt for an energy star qualified laptop instead of a power guzzling desktop.

 

Water Conservation

Even though households are relatively low consumers of water, population growth and expanded water use have outweighed the effect of water saving technology and behavior. Less than 3 % of the world’s water is fresh (drinkable), of which 2.5 % is frozen in the Antarctica, Arctic and glaciers. Humanity must therefore rely on 0.5% for all of man’s ecosystem’s and fresh water needs. More than 1 billion people still do not have access to fresh water. Excessive use of water contributes to the global water stress thus use it wisely.

1)      From our toilets to our tubs, approximately 60 percent of a home's water consumption takes place in the bathroom,

§  Turn off water while brushing/shaving/washing dishes.

§  Instead of taking baths, take shorter showers with low-flow showerheads.   

§  Upgrade your toilet to a low flush model.

§  Put dye tablets or food coloring in your toilet tank and wait to see if the color appears in the bowl (without flushing).  If it does, you have a leak! Fix all the leaks promptly.

2)      Make sure that the overhead tanks do not over flow.

3)      Operate the washing machine only when it is fully loaded.

4)      Use the proper water level or load size selection on the washing machine.

5)      Watering of lawns and gardens can double normal household water use during the hot, dry summer months. Established lawns and landscape plantings will usually survive with less watering.

6)      Retrofit older buildings and facilities with water-efficient plumbing fixtures.

7)      Recharge ground water by the method of rainwater harvesting.

 

Reduce Water Pollution

All of us use water in our homes and make it dirty. Contaminated waters are the cause of a large number of diseases. Hence reduce water pollution.

1)      Cooking oil and fats which choke the pipes, should not be thrown down the drain, instead throw them in dustbin.

2)      Chemicals like paints, solvents, insecticides, motor oil and medicines may kill microbes that help purify water. Throw them into dustbins.

3)      Wash your vehicle at a proper washing place/ garage/ authorized servicing centre and avoid mixing of oil in water.

4)      Avoid applying chemicals to your garden especially during rainy season.

5)      Do not dump plastics/polythene bags into the drainage lines.

 

Reduce Noise Pollution

       1)      Avoid using Power Horns.

2)      Always maintain your motor vehicle and its exhaust silencer in proper condition.

3)      Avoid the use of Loud Speakers / Loud music systems between 10:00 P.M. and 6:00 A.M.

4)      Ensure that your diesel Generator Set is provided with acoustic enclosure which gives a reduction of a minimum 25 dB(A) (as per the provisions of the Govt. of India notification GSR 371(E)).

 

Go Green!

             

1)      Do shopping closer to your home.

2)      Plant trees.

3)      Less packing leads to less waste. Buy things in bulk to avoid excess packaging.

4)      Skip the elevator and take stairs.

5)      Take the bus or train- support public transportation.

6)      Ride your bicycle.

7)      Always try to give a ‘print’ on both sides of the paper. Reuse/print again one sided non-use printed papers.

8)      Find new uses for old things.

9)      Unload your trunk, the lighter the load, the less fuel your car consumes.

10)  Start Gardening

11)  Locally grown, organic food has fewer pesticides and chemicals (or none at all) and reduces the energy and pollution caused by transportation.

12)  Sign up for online banking to stop receiving paper statements.

13)  Bring lunch to work in reusable containers.

14)  Dispose useless cell phones at a nearby authorized cell phone dealer.

15)  Choose reusable instead of disposable products (like razors, cups, pens, etc).

16)  Weather permitting, take your exercises outdoors.

17)  Make maximum use of natural light.

18)  Don’t idle away energy. Beyond one minute, it is more fuel-efficient to restart your car.

19)  Do not use the clutch pedal as foot rest.

20)  Shop smart. Bring your own bags to the grocery store. Keep a few reusable shopping bags within easy reach - in your car, purse and office or just near the front door.

21)  Use packing that can be recycled. Ask your vendors to use less packaging when feasible.

22)  Carrying filtered water in hard-plastic water bottles can help you cut down on buying plastic water bottles and other beverages when you're on the go.

23)  Adopt Green Building concepts when you go for a new construction.

24)  Spread the Green word!

Sub: Golden Jubilee Year of National Safety Council (1966-2016)

Dear

As you are aware, the Council will be completing 50 years on 4th March 2016. Therefore, the Board of Governors has decided to celebrate the year 2015-16 as a Golden Jubilee Year. A number of special activities and events are being planned by the Council throughout this year with a aim to extend the reach and enhance the visibility of the Council.

We propose to launch the Golden Jubilee Year by releasing a specially designed logo and a ‘Commemoration Book’ at the hands of the Hon’ble Minister of State for Labour & Employment (Independent Charge), Shri Bandaru Dattatreya in the NSCI-2014 Award function which is scheduled to be held on 12th March, 2015 at the SCOPE Auditorium, New Delhi. Some other activities planned are as follows :

1. Training programmes for SMEs at some of the industrial pockets in the country. 

2. Seminars on some important current topics on safety for NSC members with participation by invitation only.

3. Collaborative Training Programme on ‘Industrial Safety’ with some employers organizations like CII.

4. Safety Training Programmes for School Children.

5. Production of spot film of 1 or 2 minute duration with important safety message for telecasting on TV channels.

6. APOSHO-31 Conference & AGM.

The Board has also decided that the NSC Chapters should also celebrate the Golden Jubilee Year by taking up similar activities in their States. I particularly, suggest that the Chapters should plan the following types of activities in their States;

i) Training Programmes in various industrial pockets in the State particularly for small scale industry workers in local language.

ii) Seminar in collaboration with Hqs. 

iii) Using Golden Jubilee Year Logo on the letter heads, banners, envelopes, etc. of the Chapter. (The Logo stickers will be made available by the NSC Hqs.) 

iv) Publishing suitable advertisements in the local newspapers on important occasions such as NSD.

v) Enrolling more new members from the States.

vi) Some activities with innovative ideas to extend the reach and visibility of the NSC during the year.

vii) Organising marathons/ minithons with Safety as a theme.

Looking forward to work together for furthering the goals of the NSC for the welfare of our workforce and the Society at large.

Regards,

Yours sincerely,

 11 jan. to 17 jan.2015

 

 
The theme for Road Safety Week celebration of 2015 is “SPEED THRILLS, BUT IT KILLS” to increase awareness among people against the  fast & furious driving .

 

  • The Road Safety Week is being initiated by the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways and supplemented the efforts by National Safety Council from the year 2011. The National Safety Council had also declared to celebrate the Road Safety Week all through the country in the month of January (11 - 17 January every year).
  • Celebrating the road safety campaign is being initiated by various  Industries in order to make people aware about the road safety. The aim of this campaign is to emphasize and accentuate employees about the need of safe roads travel by applying just simple rules. It also need efforts from different stakeholders such as the community, transport sector, students, employees etc.
  • As per statistical data and information, it has been noted that approximately one lakh people are getting killed per year in the road accidents or some of them become sufferer of the life threatening problems such as mental trauma, loss of memory, loss of hand or legs and so many for the whole life. Such situations specially in India increases the importance and necessity of the road safety measures. India has a very huge population of the road travelers such as two wheelers, four wheelers on the road, that’s why they must have more awareness about road safety.
  • Road Safety campaign address the following issues-

Ø  To encourage all the travelers to follow the traffic rules and wear helmets while diving two wheelers and seat belts while driving four wheelers.
