Quotes From Esteemed Jury Members

At Godrej, we are deeply committed to environmental protection. Like my uncle Sohrab, we view it as a responsibility, not a choice. The Sohrab Pirojsha Godrej Environment Award is a monument to his legacy. S. P. Godrej, a World Wildlife Fund founding member in India, played a pivotal role in making the country a refuge for a significant tiger population and expanding Mumbai’s mangrove conservation. Let’s honour him by celebrating the tireless efforts of our Environment¬†Champions.
Mr. Nadir B. Godrej, Chairman & Managing Director, Godrej Industries
S. P. Godrej was a timeless inspirer well ahead of his time. He lives on even today with his eternal message of the critical importance of environmental protection as a key to our sustainable future. The awards created in his name for championing this noble cause will inspire generations to come.
Dr. Raghunath Mashelkar, FRS, Former Chairman of National Innovation Foundation, Former Director General of CSIR

Mr. S. P. Godrej was a man born much before his time! He devoted his entire life, giving of his Time, Money & Talents, unstintingly to the cause of the Environment, literally 24×7. I feel really fulfilled that Nadir Godrej has whole heartedly supported Mumbai First in its endeavor to commemorate this giant of a human being.
