“Ever wondered about your family’s carbon footprint? Now’s the time to find out. Calculate, post it, tag 3 friends and one of you could #WinAGreenHome worth 1 crore at #mahindraVista, Kandivali, Mumbai. It’s not just about the lowest score; it’s about the change we create together!," the group's chairperson had tweeted.

Mahindra Lifespaces on February 2 announced an initiative to raise awareness about factors contributing to climate change by highlighting the impact of individual carbon footprint. For instance, one hour of scrolling on social media adds ~70g of carbon to one’s footprint, while a ten-minute longer hot shower contributes about 2kg, the company said in a statement.

For this the Mahindra Lifespace Developers Limited (MLDL), the real estate and infrastructure development arm of the Mahindra Group, has introduced a Carbon Calculator, the company said in a statement.

Designed for user-friendly interaction, the Carbon Calculator allows individuals to assess their carbon footprint based on factors like food, transport, and power consumption. With a process taking less than 5 minutes, users receive a clear and accessible graph illustrating their carbon impact. This initiative marks MLDL's commitment to empower individuals with the knowledge needed to drive change towards a greener and more sustainable future.

Our goal is to highlight the environmental impact of everyday actions and instigate positive changes in daily habits for a sustainable future. This competition presents an exciting opportunity for participants to win a green home while encouraging actions that contribute to a greener future."
