NEW DELHI, DECEMBER 27 :
Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has organized cyclothon in six metro cities to create awareness on fuel conservation as well as protection of environment. The cyclothons, organised in Dehradun, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Kolkata, Agartala and Chennai during November and December 2017, drew over 5000 participants from all walks of life.


In order to spread the message across the country about the importance of fuel conservation, ONGC has been actively participating in various initiatives including this cyclothon. The genesis of organizing the cyclothons lies in Prime Minister’s clarion call to people through ‘Mann Ki Baat’ to voluntarily dispensing with the use of petrol & diesel for one day every week. The call was aimed at conserving fuels which is of utmost importance in nation building. The objective of promotion of cycling through this event is to instill socio-environmental consciousness and garner support for fuel saving.


ONGC, as a responsible corporate citizen, has partnered with Petroleum Conservation and Research Association (PCRA), under the aegis of Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas to organize cyclothons in six cities to give impetus to the Prime Minister’s vision. More than 5000 people pledged their support to not use vehicle at least one day in a week and contribute to the larger mission of fuel conservation and environment protection. State Police Authorities and District administration shared all support to make the cyclothons a grand success.

ONGC has been at the forefront of many environment friendly initiatives to achieve the mission of carbon neutrality in its operations. The company has a dedicated Carbon Management group that constantly monitors the company’s carbon footprints. An astounding 15 projects of ONGC have been registered by the UNFCCC as Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Projects, that has potential Certified Emission Reduction (CER) of 21,03,198 each year, a unique standing in the industry (1CER = 1 metric tonne of CO2 equivalent). Also, to safeguard the working and surrounding environment, ONGC has adopted a well-defined HSE policy focusing on Occupational Health, Safe Operation and control of pollution.


PCRA has rolled out a campaign to organize Cyclothon in 76 cities across India to sensitise the country to adopt the ideology of conservation for a greener environment. Earlier, in November 2017, ONGC along with other oil PSUs, organized the PCRA Saksham Pedal Delhi cyclothon that witnessed over 5000 participants. Another mega cyclothon has been planned at Mumbai where even more people are expected to participate.

"In Mendrisio I felt it – the exhilaration of what the bike has to offer. It's a simple machine that conjures a vast mix of emotions. It can evoke the senses and raise the spirits of people who watch. For those who ride it can seem like the perfect vehicle for transport. For those who race, there's no better sensation than being on top of your gear making mountains feel like flat roads. Cycling throws up plenty of obstacles, unknown territory, high speed split-second considerations. Where to next? What's around the next corner? Who cares? You're flyin'!" Cadel Evans on winning the World Championships.

The ILO welcomes announcement made at a November 30-December 1, 2017 meeting in Geneva

 

Ryder was among the speakers at the opening of the two-day Sporting Chance Forum in Geneva, where sports stakeholders announced their commitment to setting up a Centre for Sports and Human Rights in 2018.

The announcement was made by the Steering Committee of the Mega-Sporting Events Platform for Human Rights , an alliance that includes UN agencies – including the ILO – governments, sports bodies, athletes, hosts, sponsors, broadcasters, civil society representatives, trade unions and employers and their organizations, and human rights groups.

The centre would support the efforts of various stakeholders, as well as individuals from affected and potentially affected groups.

Guy Ryder:
Together, we can prevent, or at least mitigate these risks

"Past experience has shown that major sporting events can be associated with serious human rights abuses if not managed properly," said Ryder. "Together, we can prevent, or at least mitigate these risks so that these events fulfill their full potential to positively impact people's lives – by delivering not only entertainment, but by generating decent jobs.".

In his address at the Forum, Ryder highlighted the achievements of the Platform collectively, and its members individually, in advancing human rights in sports.

He also recalled that the ILO signed an agreement earlier in November with the Government of Qatar – which will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup – to implement a three-year technical cooperation programme to improve compliance with international labour standards and protect the rights of migrant workers in Qatar.

NEW DELHI, NOVEMBER 05 : "Running isn't a sport for pretty boys...It's about the sweat in your hair and the blisters on your feet. Its the frozen spit on your chin and the nausea in your gut. It's about throbbing calves and cramps at midnight that are strong enough to wake the dead. It's about getting out the door and running when the rest of the world is only dreaming about having the passion that you need to live each and every day with. It's about being on a lonely road and running like a champion even when there's not a single soul in sight to cheer you on. Running is all about having the desire to train and persevere until every fiber in your legs, mind, and heart is turned to steel. And when you've finally forged hard enough, you will have become the best runner you can be. And that's all that you can ask for."

I run because if I didn't, I'd be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.

Three more ONGC employees summit Mt Everest

Thesynergyonline Sports Bureau

NEPAL, MAY 28 : Three more ONGC employees – Santosh Kumar, Nirmal Kumar and Prabhat Gaurav have added on to the historic feat of scaling the MT Everest. With this, six ONGC employees have successfully accomplished Mission Everest - the crown of the earth.

Earlier, three ONGC employees Yogendar Garbiyal, N Jagoi and Rahul Jarngal had summited the Everest under the leadership of Padma Shri Loveraj Singh Dharamshaktu, Assistant Commandant, BSF representing Indian Mountaineering Foundation (IMF).

Santosh, Nirmal and Prabhat along with accompanying sherpas summited the Everest today at 0805 hrs. All members of the expedition are in good health condition. The three ONGC employees have returned to South Col (Camp 4), while the other team, that summited the Everest yesterday are back to the Everest Base Camp.
Congratulating the achievement of the ONGC employees, CMD ONGC tweeted, "Filled with pride to know that three more ONGCians have scaled the Everest. Proud of Nirmal, Santosh and Prabhat on this achievement. Kudos!"

The ONGC Everest Expedition is a phenomenal employee engagement initiative taken by ONGC – a world leader in oil and gas Exploration and Production. This is a unique HR initiative of ONGC to instill values of adventure, camaraderie, team spirit and bravado within the organization.

The idea of Mission Everest was borne out of the team's successful completion of the Everest Base Camp Trek in October 2015. From then on, there has been no looking back. ONGC CMD has then exhorted all team members on their return to target Mt Everest.

The IMF has been instrumental in the success of this expedition by not only providing training to the employees, but also preparing them for all the adverse conditions, under the mentorship of Col H S Chauhan, President IMF.

"But there are men for whom the unattainable has a special attraction. Usually they are not experts: their ambitions and fantasies are strong enough to brush aside the doubts which more cautious men might have. Determination and faith are their strongest weapons. At best such men are regarded as eccentric; at worst, mad..." ? Walt Unsworth, Everest: A Mountaineering History
