Adopt a Green Highway Program (AGHP) is an initiative taken up by National Green Highways Mission to engage Corporates, Public Sector Units, Governmental organizations, other donors – bi/multi-lateral institutions and individuals to collaborate to develop the green corridor along National Highways through plantation and allied activity on avenue, median and other available nearby land patches along highways. This is a unique partnership program benefitting all stakeholders from government to corporates to community at large, in which, organizations and individuals can adopt sections of highways and contribute towards green corridor development.
This initiative will also help in fulfilling India’s commitment at CoP 21 Summit for voluntary carbon emissions reduction of up to 35 % by 2030. Participation in the program will promote a sense of ownership of the roadways among the corporates and community.
The program will cover one lakh kms of National Highways (NHs) across the country covering all 218 NHs which are under NHAI’s jurisdiction. Adopting a green highway is an easy way to make a visible impact by an adopter on its stakeholders and community at large and showcase its’ commitment towards better environment. All AGHP activities will be in adherence to Green Highway Policy 2015 and NGHM Guidelines.
