This was a unique and first of its kind field visit in India. Wherein, a routine part of the syllabus field trip by college students was amalgamated with Environmental Protection and Energy Conservation initiatives. Zenitex was bustling with 26 young students from Dr. S. & S. S. Ghandhy College of Engineering and Technology. What was supposed to be a regular day, turned in to a delightful experience. 

Since, the trip was organized to coordinate with ‘World Water Day & World Forest Day’, gave us the impetus to add these students on the list of environmental protectionists and nature lovers. The whole activity was designed in such a way that firstly they were taken across the processing plant and along with it they were educated about various techniques implemented by Zenitex for ‘Water Conservation’ and ‘Energy Conservation’. For Water Conservation we have implemented ‘Rain Water Harvesting’; ‘Drip Irrigation’; ‘Water Scrubber’ and ‘ETP’, and various measures and innovations have been implemented to Conserve Energy, like reduction in Carbon Emission, Using recycled water for production, reduction in use of Electricity inside the plant and on campus in general, and tree plantations in support of Environmental Protection and a Greener Future.

To encourage the students, and make them a part of the ‘Go Green” world campaign. A Tree Plantation event was also executed at Zenitex campus.  More than 30 trees were planted, most of them being planted by the students themselves. This inculcated in them the need of Trees and brought them close to Nature and thus they pledged their support for the ‘Go Green’ world campaign and promised that they will themselves be actively involved in such activities and will also encourage their fellow students and friends to be a part of this Green Brigade which will help us ‘Save The Earth’.

We appreciate the devoutness of Dr. S. & S.S. Ghandhy College of Engineering & Technology, its administration and faculty for their genuinely imbibing the core values of education and its duties towards mankind and nature, which was reflected in the positive and optimistic approach of its students. And the interest shown by its management in joining hands with Zenitex & Hearts@work in their Social Responsibility / Community Welfare activities and Tree Plantation – Go Green initiatives and training of its students by signing an MoU, which in itself is an exceptional move. The MoU is expected to be signed by next week, details of which we will share with our readers shortly.

Moreover, it was a pleasure to host such enthusiastic and zealous students. They had questions and curiousness about most of the things on the campus. The students were accompanied by  Shri Rameshbhai G. Patel, H.O.D. Textile Processing Department along with Professor Shri Pavanbhai Panwala. To assist them around the campus, in to the processing unit and for tree plantation, Mr. Bhavik Naik, General Manager – Zenitex, Mr. Mohammed Nasir, PA to Mr. Viral Desai, CEO-Zenitex, Mr. K. C. Sahoo, Chief Engineer – Zenitex and other department heads were with them throughout their visit.

Finally the students met Mr. Viral Desai, CEO-Zenitex, who had a few words of inspiration and wisdom to charge the tempo of the bright students. Mr. Viral Desai, advised them to be humble and true to their duties and responsibilities and put their heart in to everything they do and success will surely follow. In the end he told them that “If you take care of Nature – Nature has its own unique way of giving back in abundance” and hence, appealed to them to take care of Nature and keep on growing more and more trees and to Save Water so that it lasts for us a little longer.

Thanks & Regards – Team ZENITEX

Women’s Day Message by Viral Desai, CEO – Zenitex

Ode to Women on Womens Day

International Women’s Day is celebrated the world over, every year on the 8th day of March. It celebrates womanhood and pays tribute to the indomitable spirit of women across the globe.

The 2016 theme for International Women’s Day is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality”. The United Nations is encouraging the world to envision a world where women and girls can have the freedom and ease of choice to participate in politics, get an education, have an income, and — an area I hold dear to my heart — live in a society free from violence and discrimination.

The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries it has the same status as of Mother’s Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.

Investing in Women is Ensuring Prosperity :
When you empower a woman, you elevate her community. This is the core concept behind many of the public diplomacy efforts: a ripple effect occurs when we believe in women and invest in their potential. By providing women entrepreneurs access to training, mentors, and networks, we directly supports the goals of advancing women’s efforts to become financially independent through entrepreneurship and utilize their economic strength to improve their communities around the world.

Every day, we read about women and girls around the world who are victims of heinous violence. From Iraqi women abducted and enslaved by ISIS to Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped and forced into marriage to a Girl Students in India gang raped and tortured to death, these tragedies seem to belong to medieval times. We should remember that even they are somebody’s daughter, sister, wife or mother and it can be anybody.

I’d like to propose a different headline, a different narrative. While their work may not always make the front pages, women are confronting our most pressing global issues. At great personal risk, they are fighting poverty, discrimination, and violence so that their families, communities, and countries can have better lives.

As an entrepreneur I see the power of women every day in every place that I visit – they are creating opportunities for the next generations of women.

On Women’s day I pay my tributes to Women around the world and in India who work to advance peace, security, and gender equality. And their individual stories represent the positive impact that empowered women can make everywhere.

So, we will not retreat in the face of those who seek to diminish or banish women and girls to the margins of society. We do not accept rape as a by-product of conflict or indifferences. We will not accept the forced marriage of girls as a social norm. And we will not forget those who have been or are being held against their will. Instead, we honour them for the courage they show in the face of brutality and intimidation.

In February, World Bank had asked in a poll what do you wish for International Women’s Day? Answers were 42% want to see gender equality. 31% said they wanted women’s empowerment, and 27% wished for women’s human rights.

I think all three issues are critical — primarily because they can’t stand alone. A woman with rights is one who feels empowered to compete in an equal world.

As Gandhiji said : “Intellectually, mentally, and spiritually, a woman is equivalent to a man and she can participate in every activity”.

In Modern Indian society women are playing stellar roles. More importantly their role in family building, society development is stupendous. Indian woman is emerging out of their conventional role, realizing their unlimited potential and have begun to take major role in all walks of life. If India is to be a superpower, then surely we need a significant contribution from these great women.

I personally feel that a woman is intelligent, understanding, beautiful, gentle, motherly and powerful. What can be more powerful than Nature and hence, even Nature is lovingly addressed as Mother Nature. Because it is a Woman who brings life. She is the chosen one by the creator to bring life in to this world.

While concluding this message, I would like to share with you all, two small videos showing how much does a woman sacrifice and thus she truly deserves respect, it is in Hindi titled “Woman’s Respect”. And for our friends in the Middle-East, we have made a similar video with the title in Arabic meaning “Girl is Happiness” in Arabic.

ZENITEX 360 DEGREE SUSTAINABILITY IN LINE WITH THE LEADERS

We are pleased and happy to announce that Zenitex and its implementation of 360 degree Sustainability makes it to Fibre2fashion Magazine’s online feature. We thank Fibre2fashion team lead by Mr. Savan Gajjar and Mr. Jigar Shelat for supporting, acknowledging and publishing our ideas and our philosophy in their well-known magazine. (Please Visit http://www.fibre2fashion.com/enhanced sustainability)

We at Zenitex feel extremely honoured to be featured in the prestigious “Enhanced Sustainability–A Leap Forward” segment (visit http://www.Fibre2Fashion-Enhanced-Sustainability_Compedium), with global giants like Novozymes, Reliance, Aditya Birla Group, Indofil, Coats, Birla Cellulose, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) to name a few in the world’s largest B2B textile portal Fibre2fashion. Global Warming and Climate Change has alarmed everyone. Concerned topmost Global Companies are implementing the sustainability module to reduce the impact. It is a unique platform to encourage and inspire the initiatives of sustainability by featured companies.

Zenitex takes inspiration from the support received from media in highlighting our way of working and intends to do more and more better.

Before a couple of days the world celebrated Oscars 2016 wherein, we would like to point out the achievement of Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio who won the Best Actor Award. It shows great passion and love for a thing which one remembers in his time of Glory. Like Leo remembered our Planet, ‘The Earth’ in his thanksgiving speech. He was right to point out that “Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species.” And the lines with which he ended with is a wakeup call for all of us, in which he said “Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted.”

We at Zenitex are always aligned with those celebrities and non-celebrities too who work for the nature and who pursue the goal of a greener world for our future generations.

For Zenitex Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection is a vital spoke in the 3 spoked wheel of 360 degree sustainability, the other two being ‘employee welfare and safety’ and ‘social responsibilities / community services’.

Zenitex works for Trees and persuades each and all to Go Green in whatever limited way one can. Small changes do make big differences, small steps do cover long distances and like from ‘a tiny acorn do mighty oaks grow’! We consider ourselves as the tiny acorn when it comes to going Green, which has been sowed in our philosophy and our actions and with the passionate and fervent nurturing by our CEO Mr. Viral Desai we envision to become the mighty oak which will spread in all the directions and with it the greenery.

Thanks & Regards – Team ZENITEX

ZENITEX SALUTES & CONGRATULATES THE GLOBAL SUPERSTAR WHO CARES FOR NATURE

WELL DONE AND WELL DESERVED OSCAR!!!

“Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted.” Quipped Leonardo DiCaprio.

Wow what determination towards the goal to save the planet. Even in the moment of his glory Leonardo di Caprio did not forget the earth. He is a class apart. He is not only a Superstar of Hollywood but a ‘Global Superstar’. This is the passion we all require to show and not only show we should have it in us to persuade our goal to save the Earth to save the Environment in which we survive. The Globe is Warming rapidly than we can imagine. 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history of mankind! When will we wake up? When will we realize? We feel that such iconic people like Leo are the inspiration, these inspirational souls should have a connect with the youth, who are the future.

As Leo said ‘’Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.

We need to support those who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people who will be most affected by this, for our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed.”

Great!!! This man feels the pulse of the wider issue of climate change and global warming. He understands about politics and greed and bureaucracy!! We are with him. Zenitex shares the same ideas. Like minded we are when it comes to our future and future of our children. Even though we are already charged and inspired throughout by the passion and dedication of our CEO, Mr. Viral Desai – Now we are supercharged and super inspired by the dedication shown by Leo. Though we are too small, as a congratulatory gift and a token of love and appreciation to Leo, we humbly pledge to tread with him on the path of his vision of a green planet in our own perspective means and ways.

Like we mentioned in one of our previous blog “We at Zenitex have a vision of GREEN. We desire to see the fascinating colourful butterflies fluttering outside our windows, the chirping and humming of beautiful birds in every factory campus, their melodious singing making the rumblings of the machines sound like music. The fluffy tailed, naughty and adorable squirrels, running up and down the trees full of enthusiasm and stopping every little while to eat their find. Where, we can have a bare footed stroll on the soft GREEN grass during breaks.”

We are already walking on that path of Green as we have begun to implement it in our offices and our campus.

quote by Viral Desai - CEO, Zenitex : take care of nature

As our CEO fondly says “If you take care of Nature – Nature has its own way of giving back in abundance”. Leo is a true example of these words. Leo you inspire us. You inspire the entire young generation. We are with you forever – Love You Leo.

Thanks & Regards – Team ZENITEX
