As a part of business principles, Hazira Group of Companies commits to contribute to Sustainable Development. The Sustainable Development Programme has a special focus on Hazira and its surrounding villages. The Group Companies have also set up a dedicated team and have created an office in the village to facilitate dialogue and access. The various activities under the Sustainable Development Programme are implemented in partnership with village institutions (Gram Panchayats and various village committees), NGOs and Government Departments.
The partnership with local institutions has resulted in a 1100 ha mangrove plantation (more than 60,00,000 trees) as on December 2010. This includes partnership with Gujarat Ecology Commission for 300 ha mangrove plantation.
The mangrove plantation initiative is supplemented by an overall eco-restoration initiative that includes creation of alternative fodder and water sources, ponds renovation and water harvesting, roof rainwater harvesting, and plantation of fruit and fodder trees in village commons and private lands. Hazira LNG and Port Companies are also supporting a programme on Vulture Conservation in Hazira Peninsula.
