The Dean of the institute, Dr Suresh Ramanathan presented the vehicles to T Senkeni, president of Manamai village panchayat in the presence of Panchayat vice president S Poornima, BDO Jeyabal and Deputy BDO Duraivel. Chief Administration Officer K Subaash, Finance Manager, Venkit and other staff and faculty members from Great Lakes were present.
Upon receiving the vehicles, Senkeni, said that there are 6,500 residents in the village and close to one tonne garbage is generated every day. “The conservancy workers used to push tricycles and make multiple stops to collect waste from households. These two electric vehicles will make work easier for them,” he said.
Dr Suresh Ramanathan said that ethics are rooted in every programme of Great Lakes. “We motivate our students to contemplate on how
business can contribute to the greater good of the society. In the future, when they become corporate leaders, such initiatives will help them consider the impact their decisions will have on the environment and on people,” he said.
