THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Technopark-based IT solutions and services major UST Global was lauded for its support to the sanitation movement at the state-level launch of the ‘Freedom From Waste’ campaign organised as part of this year’s Independence Day celebrations by the Kerala Suchitwa Mission.

The recognition came for the services and support the company has been extending for the state’s sanitation campaign. At the launch of the ‘Freedom From Waste’ campaign at Mar Ivanios Vidya Nagar, Nalanchira, the services and support of UST Global towards Green Protocol initiatives were applauded with a memento and an appreciation certificate.

The function was inaugurated by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy. Minister for Social Justice and Panchayats M  K Muneer presided over the function,

“We take great pride in supporting various sanitation initiatives. Till date, UST Global has been responsible for the planting of close to 8,000 saplings.

As early as 2007, we were ranked number seven on the Top 20 Green IT Outsource’s Report by Brown & Wilson Group,” said Alexander Varghese, Chief Administrative Officer, UST Global. According to K Vasuki, Executive Director, Suchitwa Mission, the state will become a model for the whole nation towards its fight against waste and will contribute towards the efforts to realise the objective of ‘Swachh Bharat’ by 2019.

As part of the Green Protocol initiatives, UST Global had extended support and services to the Suchitwa Mission during the recently concluded National Games by helping in doing away with waste paper, plastic plates, cups, and bottles.

The bold initiatives of the Green Protocol Committee of National Games succeeded in making the National Games venues ‘zero waste areas’ by adopting a slew of measures, including restriction on the use of disposable containers or packaging material (for food and drinks) inside the venue.
