Otis India volunteers for tree plantation initiative

The world’s leading manufacturer of elevators, Otis India, a subsidiary of Otis Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: OTIS), escalators, and moving walkways, has embarked on a volunteer tree planting initiative in major cities across India.

Since last November, colleagues from Otis India have planted 2,000 trees in Bengaluru and 2,000 trees in Kolkata, with the intent to plant an additional 2,000 trees in both Mumbai and New Delhi this year.

These urban centres now have thousands of new trees and plants helping to preserve biodiversity, many of which yield ecological benefits thanks to the efforts of Otis India volunteers. With a commitment to maintaining the longevity and well-being of the newly planted trees, Otis India has appointed specialists to take care of watering and weeding.

The tree planting initiative is part of the company’s continuing focus on supporting lively communities. “This work supports our global sustainability and community engagement goal to contribute 500,000 volunteer hours by 2030, ensuring that our colleagues help sustain and improve the communities where they live and work,” says Sebi Joseph, President, Otis India. “Planting diverse, native trees is also an important step towards helping preserve biodiversity in these urban centres.”
