#ClimateCrisis #ClimateChange #SwitchOff2SwitchOn #ThisIsTataPower #ReflexGeneration

Tata Power has always strived to be an avid advocate of environment conservation. To give an impetus to this vision, Tata Power’s Club Enerji, a resource and energy conservation initiative, organised a rally centered on the theme of ‘Save Water’ & ‘Save Electricity’ in Bengaluru. This rally witnessed a participation of over 75 enthusiastic students from VET School with the support of teachers and volunteers from Tata Power Club Enerji.

The rally was conducted around the VV Puram suburb where students carried placards, TPCE and school banners to convey the message of energy and water conservation.  

The intent was to educate students and sensitise individuals on the importance of building a sustainable future. The rally successfully reached out to over 500 citizens who responded positively to the efforts of these students.

Commenting on the drive, Ms. Shalini Singh, Chief-Corporate Communications & Sustainability, Tata Power, said, “Tata Power, as an environmentally responsible organisation, has been passionate about building a sustainable future by educating the young minds of tomorrow. With this rally, we aimed to further our cause of making a difference to the society and are overwhelmed with the response. We would also like to thank VET School for their participation and support.”

Club Enerji, through its various modules has not only become a holistic movement to save energy and natural resources but also transformed children all around the country into responsible citizens and proactive leaders of the future.

*India’s ‘Reflex Generation’

The idea of environmental consideration has been transformed from pre-planned, momentous, typically very public, collective acts from committed individuals – marches, protests, petitions – towards a more mass movement based on individual choices and decisions made every day.  Such ‘micro-activism’ is no less effective, aggregating entire communities and demographic groups whose consideration the environment is defining their daily routines and home and at work. For such people, minimising environmental impact has become instinctive and natural; a reflex defining the decisions they make.

The impact of India’s ‘Reflex Generation’ is evident in the workplace; today, potential employees are basing their decisions on employers’ environmental credentials. According to Deloitte’s annual  Generation Y survey , 76% Indian millennials claimed to have chosen employers whose values matched their own; a finding supported by other research indicating young people’s preference for employers who demonstrate a “genuine commitment” to corporate social responsibility, the environment, and sustainability.

Another way individuals mark their inclination towards protecting the environment is by subtly but consistently purchasing green products. In fact, in a Deloitte study, 38% respondents with a family monthly salary of Rs. 1 lakh or more were willing to pay 10% or more premiums for eco-friendly products.  Other research suggests that 95% seek out brands that display responsible behaviour.

Finally, today’s environmental guardians have adapted their lifestyles to imbibe the core philosophy of environmental consideration into their day-to-day lives. The interest in electric vehicles for daily use is another example of how India’s younger citizens are attempting to be more environmentally conscious on a regular basis.  Globally, 81% consumers claim to be prepared to make ‘personal sacrifices’ to address social, environmental issues.  Such consideration reflects the ‘micro-activism’ at the heart of India’s ‘Reflex Generation’.
