Prerana: Thanks for having me, Spiffy. The climate crisis is affecting the quality of lives across the world, including India. Problems include unsafe and unaffordable housing, loss of green spaces, decreased groundwater, poor air quality, disasters (heat waves and flooding), and reducing economic opportunities. We are promoting climate resilient housing, solarization, cool roof technology, and the creation of green spaces. We are working to revitalize water bodies, raise groundwater levels especially in drought prone areas and to restore coastlines. Most importantly, we are preparing communities to tackle these issues. We are fortunate to have made an impact and to receive amazing support from communities and donors.
Sudhindra: Majority of fossil fuels’ utilization in India is for commercial vehicles. Electrifying these vehicles is an immediate need. Because 95% of all commercial vehicles on the road require financial assistance through loan products and more than 90% of vehicles are owned by individual and small operators, solving their electric vehicle adoption challenges becomes an imperative. From assisting customers to choose the right electric vehicle for their businesses to offering financial support, Turno acts as a comprehensive end-to-end electric vehicle solution, encouraging greater adoption and making the switch to electric convenient, faster, and affordable.
