In order to foster a harmonious existence, we have launched a targeted program in Assam to conserve the ecosystem through creating the ability of human beings and Asian elephants to peacefully co-exist. The program includes establishing Anti-Depredation Squads (ADS), comprising local youth. These groups are tasked with creating awareness among local communities on the correct methods to manage human-elephant interactions.
With the ambition of being a Business for Nature, Pernod Ricard India holds restoring and rejuvenating deforested lands as one of the key priorities for mitigating the impacts of climate change. With a large-scale tree plantation program across 9 geographies, it aims at restoring biodiversity – by planting native species in a mini-forest model – but also curbing down GHG emissions via natural sinks.
