It is easy to leave carbon footprints and move on, while it requires conscious effort to try and rub some of those carbon footprints and leave green ones instead. This series of event is all about taking that extra mile and make little changes that will make our planet a better place to live.

While it takes more effort to start not green and move towards green, it is easier for new entrepreneurs to start their venture greener way.

SICCI, CIIE invites everyone to step in to this event and step out greener in mind, heart and practice.
