After repeated calls from Americans and Australians, the environmental awareness situation in India is taking some twists. A recent story by the Hindustan Times says the State Bank of India (SBI) is on the lookout for greening consultants to cut its power usage and to accumulate some carbon credits.
The bank has requested CDM consultants to submit proposals for power saving projects. The consultants are supposed to recommend eco-friendly devices to SBI so that the bank can acquire carbon credits by taking advantage of Kyoto Protocols Carbon Development Mechanism. The bank has set August 5 as the last date for submission of applications.
