New Delhi: Managing energy so that it can be a key driver to success and promoting New Delhi as a sustainable and safe city, were priority themes on Delhi government’s agenda, according to the Lt Governor, Tejendra Khanna who outlined a charter for the city and for corporate India at a recent meeting organized by CII.
“The key to being highly productive in any endeavor is to manage your energy. By attending to your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs you can accomplish more with greater enthusiasm, greater creative and greater enjoyment than ever before,” stated Mr Ravi Ramakrishnan, CEO, RvaluE Learning Systems (P) Ltd, while addressing Delhi State Council members at an interactive session, organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) earlier this week.
Energy conservation is not a priority - both with individuals and sadly so, even with corporates. There is no training offered to help people to fully exploit available energy resources and to manage it efficiently.
The interaction coincided with the Second Delhi State Council Meeting, where the workplan for the year was discussed. Mr Kartikeya Bharat Ram, Chairman, Delhi State Council briefed members on the interactive session with the Lt Governor of Delhi, Mr Tejendra Khanna earlier in the day and highlighted the key issues discussed with him.
The Lt Governor of Delhi has emphasized an urgent need for the Capital city to move towards high-value services sector in order to reduce the logistical and environmental load, besides taking steps to enhance the safety of citizens.
Appreciating the pro-active approach taken by CII towards water management, the Lt Governor invited CII to prepare a paper on Water Conservation Policy and work closely with the Delhi Government to encourage ‘good practices’.
Mr R Narayanaswami, Chief Secretary, Govt of NCT of Delhi was also present during the meeting and assured his support in any collaborative initiatives that could be set up towards this end. According to him, public recognition by instituting awards for water conservation could pave the way for a more informed society that respects its natural resources and works collectively to conserve them.
Lt Governor outlined a broad charter around the following areas:
1) Safe Delhi Campaign
2) Better street lighting
3) Disaster Preparedness and Fire Safety in Indian companies
4) Enhancing skills of students and young professionals
