Club Enerji recently launched the Waste Management module which educates the students about the hazards of waste dumping on the environment and its impact on the ecosystem. The module aims to provide a platform to students to share and expand their understanding, thereby, bringing about a chain-reaction that can significantly reduce generation of waste and increase efficient waste management in the country.
The Club Enerji Programme has reached out to over 400 schools in India and has sensitised over 7 million citizens, who in turn have helped save more than 11.2 MUs of electricity till date. This is equivalent to saving 11,200 tonnes of CO2, and is enough to light up over 5,200 houses for a year. The Club also has 1,150 self-sustaining Mini Club Enerjis and has won several national and international accolades.
