Environment Sustainability

IDRF recognizes that, with 65% of India’s rising population living in rural areas, protecting natural resources and supporting sustainable business opportunities is critical to combat the adverse impacts of climate change. According to a recent UNICEF report, children in India are at higher risk of climate and environmental shocks threatening their health, education, and protection. Introducing environmentally friendly practices to not only achieve renewable energy targets and conserve natural resources but also provide basic necessities, like clean water, electricity and sanitation to marginalized populations will help reduce these negative impacts and ensure a resilient future.  IDRF’s programs focusing on environmental sustainability aim to provide local communities with the tools required to close the sustainability gap through their NGO partnerships.

Current IDRF programs target the following areas:

  • Renewable energy
  • Biodiversity conservation
  • Local ecosystem management such as organic farming, dairies, etc. 
  • Clean water and sanitation 
  • Eco-friendly products
