Pune, India: In line with Hon. PM Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Campaign, Suzlon Foundation has
organized a year-long cleanliness drive that will be carried out across 6 states in India. The theme of the
campaign is ‘Campaign for Clean, Green and Plastic Free Neighbourhood.’ The objective behind the
campaign is to encourage the masses to come forth and contribute towards a cleaner tomorrow. As a
company involved in renewable energy and committed to espousing economic, environmental and
social sustainability, Suzlon ensures that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) remains an integral part of
its business functions. The campaign focused on building awareness amongst the people in form of a
rally and cleanliness drive.

Speaking on the campaign, Mr. Tulsi Tanti, Chairman, Suzlon Group said, “We fully support PM’s
Swachh Bharat initiative and Suzlon is committed to making positive contribution to the movement. Our
spread in rural India gives us unique opportunity to contribute to this mission and bring about a clean
India.”

Dr. Jasmine Sofia Gogia, General Manager, Suzlon Foundation, said, “As a responsible corporate, we
stand committed to contributing towards a sustainable ecosystem. Cleaner India will lead to multi-level
improvement in the country's health and will drive civic sense. There’s a need to bring about a paradigm
shift in the perception of the population by educating the masses to adopt hygiene practices. I urge all
corporate houses to step up and support this movement for a sustainable India.”

182 Suzlon employees and 695 villagers from Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Gujarat,
and Madhya Pradesh have participated in the campaign in form of garbage collection drive, cleaning of
villages, beach cleaning and so on. In addition to participating in the drive, the employees have also
undertaken the following pledges:

I commit to keep my surroundings clean, whether at home or at work.
I commit to follow all traffic rules to have safe journeys, and to avoid traffic jams which cause
  pollution.
I commit to minimize use of plastic and paper bags.
I commit to reduce food waste by never leaving food on my plate.

  the road side.
