Jamshedpur, as the burgeoning township of Sakchi was re-named in 1919 as a tribute to Tata Steel's Founder, is India's first planned industrial and most cosmopolitan city. It is a model of harmonious co-existence of industry and environment, with acres of verdant parks and gardens dotting the city and providing bucolic sanctuaries from the pressures of everyday life. New lungs are added every year to re-emphasise Tata Steel's commitment to cleaner and greener Jamshedpur. Tree plantation, an ongoing activity, found remarkable expression through the Green Millennium Countdown. The city won international acclaim when it was selected for the 2004 Global Compact City award from the UN in India. It is a city that has proved that the progress of enterprise, the welfare of the people and the health of the environment are all inextricably linked.
