Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India commemorates month-long celebration of World Environment Day

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) has announced its commitment to environmental sustainability by celebrating Environment Month, coinciding with World Environment Day on June 5.

As part of the Environment Month celebrations, HMSI is setting an inspiring example by planting 1 lakh trees across various regions of India. Authorized Main Dealers (AMD’s) of HMSI will actively engage in the campaign by conducting free PUC check-up drives, distributing informative leaflets to customers, and pasting environment awareness promotion stickers on invoices and vehicles. Additionally, HMSI dealers will be distributing saplings to all customers visiting the dealerships in June. To further spread awareness, SMS messages highlighting the importance of environmental conservation will be sent to customers.

World Environment Day, an initiative of the United Nations Environment Program on June 5, is an annual event aimed at being the biggest and most widely celebrated global day for positive environmental action. HMSI’s commitment to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 aligns with this year’s Environment Day theme: “Land Restoration, Desertification, and Drought Resilience.” The company is making dedicated efforts to minimize land degradation, desertification, and drought resilience in daily operations by implementing sustainable land management, soil and water conservation, reforestation and afforestation, community engagement and education, and policy and governance.

From pioneering emission reduction technologies to investing in green manufacturing, HMSI is dedicated to creating a sustainable future, the company shared. HMSI’s third factory in Narsapura, Bangalore, meets 98% of its energy requirements through renewable resources. HMSI is actively expanding its capability to meet more than half of its overall energy needs through renewable sources. All HMSI plants have been awarded the prestigious GreenCo World Class rating, achieving Platinum and Platinum Plus levels, a testament to their environmental excellence.
