Client : EY Foundation
In the absence of economically viable and convenient solutions, stubble burning is a common practice amongst farmers in north India. EY Foundation committed its support to the India Paryavaran Sahayak (IPS) Foundation to implement a cost-effective and scalable solution to address the air quality issue in the Northern region of the country.
The grants will be used to spread awareness of in-field straw management practices that will in turn, reduce air pollution caused by crop residue burning. Over two-years, this intervention is expected to reduce 300,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions and, save 48 billion litres of water.
