This year, keeping up with United Nations theme of ‘Air Pollution’, Aditya Birla Group has pledged to create artwork out of toxic air and to support the cause they have also planted over 1 million saplings across the group. The campaign focuses on the adverse effects of air pollution and how it affects everything around us – from heritage monuments and wildlife to human health and flora & fauna.
