KREATE FOUNDATION - AN INITIATIVE BY D KUPENDRA REDDY

KReate Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation founded in May 2019 by D Kupendra Reddy, a successful businessman, and parliamentarian. The Foundation aims to work towards a better Bengaluru by looking at problems comprehensively and building solutions that can create a larger impact on individuals, society, and the environment.

Bengaluru is India’s Silicon Valley, the hub of IT/ITES sector in India and the world. This city in Karnataka is one of the fastest growing cities in the world  and an important part of the Indian economy. The city’s rapid urbanisation comes with threats of depletion of natural resources, housing shortage, and garbage disposal issues. These problems are often interrelated.

Vision

Reinvent the old charm by looking at problems holistically and building solutions that can create a larger impact on individuals, society, and environment.

Mission

Enable the inclusive redesigning and implementation of solutions for issues related to water, infrastructure, and climate change.

IMPACT AREAS

WATER

  • Years of rapid urbanization in Bengaluru has led to drying borewells, falling groundwater levels, and filth-frothed lakes that burst into flames.
  • Nearly 35% of the population in Bengaluru are dependent on borewells.
  • 43% of 59,774 rural habitations in Karnataka don’t have full drinking water coverage.

The foundation is working with experts, authorities, NGOs, and communities to spread awareness about sustainable water management, wastewater reuse, and rainwater harvesting. Our founder Kupendra Reddy filed a PIL in 2015 that started a chain reaction for lake restoration and rejuvenation. The foundation shall continue working for this cause.

INFRASTRUCTURE

  • Bengaluru is the fastest growing city in Asia with an urban area of 850 sq km.
  • The city has seen over 10,000 developments since 2005, with more being constructed every year.

Waste management, power sourcing, and overall sustainability are necessary to keep up the demands of rapid urbanisation and economic development. Going forward, these aspects will play a crucial role.

KReate is working with partners towards building sustainable and environmentally friendly urban landscape models that are green,  self-reliant, and can be replicated across the country.

CLIMATE CHANGE

  • India is the world’s fourth-largest emitter of greenhouse gases. 
  • Cities contribute about 75% of global CO2 emission, with transport and buildings being the largest factors.

Since climate change is not easily reversible, a lot of thought and action will be needed in the field to retain the old charm. KReate would be working with partners on a two-pronged approach to handle climate change: 

  1. Reducing and stabilising the levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere 
  2. Reducing individual carbon footprint by creating awareness among individuals and communities.
