Everyone should take out time from their busy schedule and sweat for about an hour daily either in the morning or evening.”

Switching to public transportation, carpooling or cycling/biking can save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions on our way to and from work,” said Bharat Vasani, general secretary of chamber. He went on to add that if members will implement this in their own life only then they will we be able to motivate others to do the same.

The Chamber of Commerce is now trying to encourage everyone to think about their lifestyle decision and find opportunities to reduce the climate impact.
