Tata Sustainability Month is a platform that helps Tata employees connect, adopt and act on sustainability as individuals and collectively see the change they can bring about in themselves, their businesses and in society. It encourages awareness of the connectivity of the world and the implications of individual actions.
Organized by the Tata Sustainability Group every June, the Tata Sustainability Month (TSM) aims to build an understanding of how the Tata group views sustainability, demonstrate how individuals and businesses can make sustainable impact and inspire our colleagues to take this understanding to the next level and make a change in their lives. Through the brand identity of Sustainable Meaningful Actions for a Responsible Tata (SMART), TSG works towards building a culture of sustainability among group companies through fresh themes and campaigns each year, developing knowledge resources and engaging activities to drive home the importance of sustainability from the individual, business and community perspective.
TSM aims to
to have a common understanding of the term and what it means for the Tata group.
and position it at the heart of business, by disseminating attributes of Tata sustainability policy, philosophy, principles and commitments.
to take this understanding to the next level and to bring about a change in their lives through sustainable actions, making sustainability a habit.
TSM 2022: Be EarthSMART
Amidst innumerable celestial bodies spread across the endless space, there is only one Earth, only one planet that we can call home.
The adverse impact of human activity on the planet is now clearly visible and worsening by the year. World Environment Day theme for 2022, 'Only One Earth' highlighted the need to live sustainably in harmony with nature by bringing transformative changes through our choices.
Aligning with the theme, Tata Sustainability Month 2022 was built upon the call to action ‘Be EarthSMART’. The month-long campaign helped employees learn, connect, adopt and act on sustainability as individuals and collectively see the change they can bring about in themselves, their businesses and society.
The campaign offered an exclusive e-course on sustainability ‘OnlyOneEarth’, contests and quizzes and several sustainability themed company-led on-ground activities.
Over 1,00,000 Tata colleagues across the globe demonstrating eagerness to embark on a sustainable path.
During TSM 2022, Tata Sustainability Group curated the ‘OnlyOneEarth’ e-course, with 19 bite size modules for on-the-go learning. The e-course helped Tata employees understand the history of earth, the challenges it faces today, and the transformative actions businesses and individuals must take to celebrate, protect and restore our planet. The modules were a mix of interactive content, videos, engaging visual elements and embedded quizzes to take a stock of learning.
22,733 employees completed the 'Only One Earth' course (online & offline)
More than 2 Tata colleagues completed the course every minute
All employees who successfully complete the e-course will be
awarded a certificate.
Quizzes, contests and on-ground engagement
Tata companies across the globe conducted various engagement activities based on the theme ‘Be EarthSMART’. From plantation and cleanliness drives, everyday sustainability challenge, street plays, eco-scavenger hunt to webinars on sustainability topics, awareness sessions on carbon emissions and environment footprint, the group companies leveraged every opportunity to motivate employees take their first step towards sustainability.
Over 1,30,000 employees participated in sustainability related quizzes, contests and on-ground activities.

Ecosystem Restoration – Well, before we move to Ecosystem Restoration (ER), let's understand what an ecosystem is. Broadly speaking, an ecosystem is a geographic area where plants, animals, and other organisms, interact with the environment - the weather and the landscape, to form a contiguous bubble of life.
Ecosystems face unprecedented threats today. Forests are being cleared; rivers and lakes polluted; wetlands and peatlands drained for agriculture or construction; seas and oceans polluted and overfished; mountains bald and eroded; and cities congested and polluted.
In view of the urgent need to drive ecosystem restoration, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) proclaimed 2021–2030 as the Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. In step with this pressing need, Tata Sustainability Month too will focus on Ecosystem Restoration this year.
