Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. Responding to widespread environmental degradation, it was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in held on April 22, 1970 and is celebrated in more than 175 countries every year.

Environmental degradation is a result of the unsustainable and uncontrolled consumption patterns of robust urbanization & industrialization, dynamic inter play of socio-economic, institutional and technological activities. Environmental changes are driven by many factors including economic growth, population growth, urbanization, intensification of agriculture, rising energy use and transportation.

This rampant growth-oriented economic development across the decades has now brought a global challenge in front of mankind – a concern for the environment.

Earth Day 2010 can be a turning point to advance towards sustainable development, climate policy, energy efficiency and renewable energy. Earth Day Network is galvanizing millions of organizations who make personal commitments to environmental sustainability.

As a result, many organizations are now turning to the approach of developing an environmental management system (EMS) with the goal of attaining certification to the recently established International Standard – ISO 14001. The establishment of an EMS (that lies at the core of ISO 14001) is seen as a tool for planning and allocating the resources to implement and deliver services so that they address environmental priorities.

Environmental management system (EMS) refers to the management of an organisation’s environmental programs in a comprehensive, systematic, planned and documented manner. It includes the organizational structure, planning and resources for developing, implementing and maintaining policy for environmental protection. Environmental protection should become one of the highest priorities for all corporations demonstrated by the creation of policies, programmes, procedures and practices for achieving environmentally sound operations.

So on Earth Day, based on the idea of “Think Globally Act Locally”, Lakshy Management Consultant Pvt. Ltd. being a socially and environmentally aware organization join hands with millions of green youth across the globe for environmental protection.

As a “green initiative” Lakshy offered free online consulting for ISO 14001 Environment Management System on 22nd April 2010 to propagate environmental awareness and ideas for protecting the environment. On this occasion consultants at Lakshy organised “free ISO 14001 EMS consulting hour” and environmental awareness camps and highlighted the implementation procedures and benefits of implementing ISO 14001 in an organization for improving their environmental performance. Number of small and medium scale organizations came forward and participated in the event “free ISO 14001 EMS consulting hour” and felt motivated and responsible towards the environment they work-in.

Thus the “Green Initiative” started by Lakshy Management Consultant Pvt. Ltd. was a grand green success.
