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 2021: SMART Ecosystem Restoration
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.
