Freida Pinto advocates use of clean energy to reduce carbon footprint

Chennai: Actress and activist Freida Pinto is leading a fight against global warming as the project ambassador for ‘Wild Edens: South Asia,’ the third in a series of documentaries that highlights the issue of climate change, produced by Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation.

Focusing on the flora and fauna in the one-of-a-kind natural habitats of India and Bangladesh, the documentary was filmed in a number of remote locations, including the Western Ghats, varied landscape of Tamilnadu and the Sunderban Delta.

Commenting on the sidelines of the premiere of the documentary in India recently, Freida Pinto said, “I have been learning a lot regarding the human-wildlife biodiversity connection in my role as ambassador of Wild Edens and as I keep going deeper into the research, the one thing that keeps coming up again and again as one of the biggest solutions is clean and green energy lowering carbon emissions and reducing carbon footprints.”

“Through this well-made documentary, the world and my fellow Indians will be able to connect with my country’s exotic mix of wild nature, rare animal life, unique wildlife sanctuaries and magnificent landscapes that are mesmerising but also under the threat of the dangers of climate change. The many wonderful creatures we will be introduced to in this film, will win you over by their beauty, their resilience, their survival instincts and also their vulnerability,” Freida added.

“Along with our international partners, we take responsibility for resolving global environmental challenges and call upon the world community to wake up and do the right thing,” Rosatom representative, Vadim Titov said.
