What is CSR?

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a management concept in which companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and interactions with their stakeholders. CSR is generally understood as being the way through which a company achieves a balance of economic, environmental and social,while at the same time addressing the expectations of shareholders and stakeholders.

On average, about 2.57 million pounds of carbon dioxide is emitted into the air every second, so it is up to us to reduce that number- the most efficient way being to switch to electric vehicles. As much efficiency planting trees holds, it does not decrease the amount of carbon dioxide released. Srivaru motors not only do we build eco-friendly vehicles, but while working, we have planted over 1,600 trees in order to improve our Earth’s condition. Of those trees, we have planted many Teak tree, Rosewood, Kino tree and sandle wood.

A single Teak tree consumes 142 kg carbon dioxide annually, and thus has the highest capacity for carbon sequestration (the process by which carbon dioxide is captured from the atmosphere by trees for long-term storage) among trees in India. Carbon dioxide traps heat and is the main convict as far as global warming is concerned. In its lifetime, a teak tree with a girth of 10-30 cm can absorb 3.70 lakh tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

The majority of bikes run on petrol. A liter of petrol is 770 grams, in which 87%, or 669.9 grams, is of carbon – thus creating 2.3 kg of carbon dioxide per day. Thereby planting 1600 trees, we are absorbing the carbon di-oxide content of 100 petroleum based motorcycles per day.

SVM bikes are non-emitters of green house gases and toxic chemicals and are better for our general health. Join us in our Fast, Fun & Safe ride.
