India: Project “Clean & Green” initiated by Egis in Gurugram
Egis in India started “Project Clean and Green” which focused on adopting a Green Belt – cleaning it and turning it Green with Trees. Post completing the Cleanliness Drive in June, we have now organized a plantation drive at the “Egis Green belt” in NH 8 to celebrate the onset of monsoons.
