Several MoUs in green energy
The concept of grow green is currently being widely implemented in the industrial sector. Emphasis is being laid on sustainable development in the industrial sector of Maharashtra and there will be several MoUs in the future in the areas of renewable energy, solar energy and green energy. GSW has also recently signed an agreement with E+H, which has taken a big step towards implementing the 'Go Green' concept. The provision of two electronics battery-powered buses for its employees is an ideal for other companies, said additional chief secretary (Industry) Baldev Singh.
