who we are
Planting trees is one of the most effective ways to combat climate change. But planting fruit trees is the best way to fight climate change, while tackling hunger and poverty too!
Sustainable Green Initiative (SGI) was founded with this objective – to distribute, plant and nurture fruit trees that will help those in most need, while contributing to the country's green cover. We maintain these saplings for three years to ensure high survival rates. Our mission has been supported by a variety of partners. The space we require has been provided by community lands, homesteads, orphanages, old-age homes, government schools and others - who all enjoy the fruits of this work.
Since 2012, SGI has overseen the planting of over 30 million trees across 15 states...and this number is only growing!
what we believe
Natural disasters, rising temperatures and toxic air quality - we are all witnessing the alarming results of the climate crisis. The future of our planet at risk. The time to act is now.
SGI believes it is our collective duty to strive towards reversing some of this damage and planting trees is the perfect way to do your part. Not only is it the easiest and most cost-effective solution, it's also the most beneficial. A tree has the potential to sequester about a tonne of carbon over 50 years! What's more, a mature tree can provide a day’s supply of oxygen for up to four people! And fruit trees give further - providing nutrition, livelihoods and much more.
To empower climate-vulnerable communities to adopt appropriate nature-based solutions based on existing indigenous wisdom, with the support of modern scientific techniques. Our purpose is to create sustainable livelihoods while striving for a net zero planet.
