Commenting on the development, Narayan Saboo, Chairman & Managing Director, Bigbloc Construction, said, "Loss of green cover has an immeasurable effect. Trees act as the lungs of the planet, absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere, retaining carbon, and releasing oxygen. Every tree destroyed leads to more CO2 emissions and destruction of one of our greatest allies in the fight against climate change. As a part of our commitment to environment and being socially responsible, BigBloc Construction has initiated the tree plantation drive."
