INDIA 2016-2018

In 2016, the ‘From Schools to the Fields’ project was launched. Funded by Guala Closures India, the project fell within the legal regulation in India to spend 2% of the net profit on social responsibility activities. It took place in the Indian States of Gujarat and Goa, where Guala Closures has two production plants.


Our main objectives with this project are to:

  1. Educate and involve young people of schools in Ahmedabad and Goa in favour of preserving the environment and fighting climate change.
  2. Support and train rural communities in Gujarat with concrete actions of planting and growing trees in areas which need to be reforested.
  3. Spread awareness about the importance of solid waste management and the waste cycle within the schools of Goa.
