It was a different morning for the employees of Samsung R&D Institute–Bangalore (SRI-B), when instead of sitting at their workstations and working hard at developing meaningful innovations for consumers in India and the world, they got their hands dirty for a very noble cause – to help increase the green cover in the beloved city.


Around 100 volunteers from SRI-B came together for a tree plantation drive, and planted over 900 saplings in and around the city, in Doddaballapura and Tumkur.

The plantation drive not only contributed to the well-being of the ecology in the city but also sensitized people about the importance of tree plantation and environmental conservation.


“At Samsung, we are committed towards contributing to the community and feel that each one of us has a role to play. Our engineers were happy and excited to contribute to such an important cause. This is a small step and we will continue our efforts to benefit this region. This is our way of giving back to society,” said Mr. Dipesh Shah, Managing Director, Samsung R&D Institute–Bangalore.





Samsung associated with Rajanet Yegneswaran Charitable Trust for this activity.


“Some experiences leave an everlasting impression and this was just one amongst those. It was a day of sweat and toil and I was happy that I could contribute my part towards nature and society. I will continue my efforts as am really encouraged by the opportunity that SRI-B has given to all of us,” said Sohan Lal Bothra, who is a Lead Engineer in the Software Engineering Team.





Volunteer Sukhmeet Singh from Network Team, was really ecstatic to be a part of the drive.


“When I was young, I used to see my mother planting saplings and nurture them each day. She would make me put manure. This drive brought back memories and brought with it a chance to lend a hand towards contributing to nature,” he said.





This is not the first time that employees at SRI-B have contributed to ecological conservation. In October 2017, about 100 volunteers had taken part in planting 2,000 saplings in areas around the campus.
