Through this initiative, both HarperCollins & Vedanta aim to plant 10,000 saplings in school premises to not only make schools greener, but also inspire children to make a positive impact on the environment and take a pledge for a greener Earth. Schools will be provided saplings to plant, given tips on how to nurture them, and encouraged to start their own mini forests on and around their campuses & communities.  

Speaking on the occasion, Priya Agarwal Hebbar, Chairperson Hindustan Zinc & Non-Executive Director Vedanta Ltd, said, "We are delighted that through this collaboration with HarperCollins, on the occasion of World Environment Day, we will be reaching out to schools for a greener tomorrow. Vedanta is committed to the cause of sustainable development, and this drive is part of our continuous efforts aimed at positively impacting local communities. For us, this initiative is even more special as it will be undertaken in schools close to our business operations, situated across India. The plantation drive is also another milestone in our commitment of planting seven million trees by 2030. We hope that Vedanta's efforts not only act as a small step towards a sustainable future, but also motivate & inspire children to champion the cause of protecting the environment."

Ananth Padmanabhan, Chief Executive Officer – HarperCollins Publishers India, said, "Trees are an investment for future generations, providing cleaner air and natural shade. At HarperCollins, we promote sustainability through various practices and initiatives – be it the paper we use or the drives we organize. Last year we reached 500 schools through our plantation drive; this year we are delighted that Vedanta has partnered with us to expand our efforts and plant 10,000 saplings in 2500 schools across the country. We hope that this drive will not only help in increasing the green cover, but also encourage educators to involve students in larger discussions around the need for conservation and sustainability."
