The sky is greener at Delhi Airport
05 June 2021

5th June is celebrated every year as World Environment Day (WED) by United Nations, for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. The event has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.

To reaffirm our commitment towards ensuring “Environmental Sustainability”, every year DIAL celebrates and makes commitment for environment wellbeing on the World Environment Day. This year, the theme by the United Nations is - “Ecosystem Restoration” and it calls for global action from everyone to do their part in healing our ailing planet. Restoring ecosystems carries substantial environmental, social and economic benefits for people.

“Ecosystem Restoration means assisting in the recovery of ecosystems that have been degraded or destroyed, as well as conserving the ecosystems that are still intact. It calls for urgent action from everyone to do their part in healing our ailing planet. Restoring ecosystems carries substantial environmental, social and economic benefits for people.”
