Liberty General Insurance pedals for a cause -  Spreads awareness for reducing carbon emission -

Employees of Liberty General Insurance Limited, one of the fastest growing general insurance companies in India, as a part of their Annual CSR activity ‘Serve with Liberty’ came together andcycled to spread awareness about reducing carbon emission and following traffic rules. A group of volunteers from Liberty General Insurance cycled for this cause during peak office hours from Lower Parel to Worliand back on Friday, May 10th.

Cycling is not just a way to try and minimise the carbon emission but is also good for one’s health. The activity was led by Anita Gupta, super randonneur and endurance cyclist from Liberty General Insurance along with Firoza Suresh, Bicycle Mayor of Mumbai, and founder of Smart Commute Foundation NGO. Association of these experienced cyclists with ‘Serve with Liberty’ helped in spreading awareness about not just reducing carbon emission but also how cycling if pursued as a sport can help us in staying fit.

World Environment Day which is hosted every year on June 5, will be hosted by China this year with a theme of Air Pollution’. According a UN report, Greening the Blue, approximately 7 million people worldwide die prematurely each year from air pollution, with about 4 million of these deaths occurring in Asia-Pacific.  The report further adds that 92 % of people worldwide do not breathe clean air, air pollution costs the global economy $5 trillion every year in welfare costs and ground-level ozone pollution is expected to reduce staple crop yields by 26 % by 2030. Apart from smoke from Coal based power plants, rice paddies (burning of crop residue / stubble), and vehicular traffic is a major contributor to carbon emissions. The latest figures from Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) say that the industry produced a total 30,915,420 vehicles including passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, three wheelers, two wheelers and quadricycle in the last financial year go on to corroborate this fact.

Creating awareness about this burgeoning issue is the first step in creating sustainable solution for this problem. Liberty General Insurance has taken upon itself to create awareness about this through its program ‘Serve with Liberty’.
