ITC Plans To Scale Up Watershed Development Programme
ITC Limited, one of India’s leading multi-business conglomerate, had on the World Environment Day announced a rapid scale-up of its highly acclaimed Integrated Watershed Development Programme. The programme has already brought soil and moisture conservation to half a million acres in the country. The company targets to double the area to nearly 1 million acres by 2018. As a result of the measures undertaken, both within its operations and through its Integrated Watershed Development programme beyond the fence, ITC has been a water positive company for the past 13 years.
