KANPUR (Metro Rail News): The Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation Limited (UPMRC) took several comprehensive environmental measures during the construction of the Kanpur Metro Rail Project’s Priority Section, for which the project was recognised by the Greentech Foundation for outstanding achievements in environmental protection. 

Greentech Foundation is a Delhi-based organisation that identifies and honour industry innovators in a variety of categories, the most important of which are environment protection, safety, and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Kanpur Metro Rail Project has been awarded the first prize under the category of environmental protection.

Kumar Keshav, Managing Director of UPMRC, Congratulated everyone and said, “Environment protection has always been our priority. Under the Kanpur Metro Project, we have translocated trees, made suitable arrangements for rainwater harvesting, developed greenbelts on the Priority Section, installed treatment plants to recycle water in the Metro Depot etc. UPMRC is fully committed towards environmental conservation. Previously, the Priority Section of Kanpur Metro Rail Project has also received ISO 14001 certificate for environmental management.”

According to him, the UPMRC has planted over 10,000 plants and saplings at various sites along with the Kanpur Metro’s Priority Section and translocated over 100 trees. In addition, it has devised plans to collect rainwater that falls on the roofs of the stations and the viaduct.

In addition, to save energy, 100% LED lighting (in the Depot, Stations, and other Metro sites), maximum use of natural light, effective waste management, and other green initiatives were implemented. As a result, the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) certified Kanpur Metro’s Priority Section as ‘Green Metro Rail System’ and granted Platinum Rating certifications to all nine Metro Stations in recognition of these efforts.
