Protecting the environment isn’t just for us; it is also for future generations that will follow our footsteps as they walk on this Earth. Keeping this in mind, TCSRD strives to protect, conserve and nurture the environment through interventions focussed in two areas - Natural Resource Management and Biodiversity Conservation. Every intervention under these two pillars is aimed at ensuring environmental integrity across all aspects - Climate Action; Life Below Water; Life on Land; Sustainable Energy.

  • Natural Resource Management
    Every intervention under this pillar is aimed at enhancing economic opportunities through optimal utilization of natural resources, while also reducing negative impact on the environment through waste management.
  • Biodiversity Conservation
    The Mithapur region is known for its natural heritage including coral reefs, lush mangrove stands, turtle nesting beaches, wetlands, bird nesting sites and the scrub forests. TCSRD has been involved in biodiversity conservation initiatives for more than a decade now - protecting and preserving the local flora and fauna.
  • Centre for Sustainable Conservation Action for the Protection of the Ecosystem of the Seas (C-SCAPES)
    To commemorate the 150 years of the Tata Group, C-SCAPES (Centre for Sustainable Conservation Action for the Protection of the Ecosystems of the Seas) was launched with the objective of it becoming a national centre of excellence. C-SCAPES focuses on coastal and marine biodiversity conservation, while at the same time also looks at sustainable livelihoods based on the coastal and marine ecosystem.

“I am 29 years old and the sole earning member of my family which includes my parents, two children and a younger brother. Due to my father’s illness, the financial responsibilities of the family were on my shoulders. I heard about the recruitment in the dry waste management programme through an acquaintance, and once I applied, I was delighted to get the job. While my starting salary was Rs.7,000 per month, today it is Rs.9,000 which helps me take care of my entire family. Additionally, because of the job timings I am able to spend time with my family as well. Today. I am the president of the self-help group named Deep Jyoti.”
