The two golds and one silver awards presented to Astral are in different categories, the Media Abby and Creative Abby segment to acknowledge the outstanding success of Astral Pipes “Ice Stupas in Ladakh” campaign.

In the Media Abby category, Astral won the Gold Medal in the “Cause Marketing” sub-category for the “Ice Stupas in Ladakh” campaign. This recognition highlights the brand’s commitment to making a positive impact in society through its innovative initiatives.

Under the Creative Abby segment, the “Ice Stupas in Ladakh” campaign was honoured with the Gold Medal in the “Green Award” subcategory, further emphasizing Astral’s dedication to environmental sustainability and eco-conscious practices. Additionally, the campaign also received the Silver Medal in the “Direct – Work done for Social Awareness or Charity Causes” category, showcasing the brand’s impactful communication efforts.

The campaign launched in March 2022, aimed at addressing the water scarcity issues in the region of Ladakh triggered by global warming. Astral Foundation collaborated with innovator and education reformist, Sonam Wangchuk and his institute, Himalayan Institute of Alternatives (HIAL). Astral provided pipes and equipment to HIAL for the construction of 9 Ice Stupas across Ladakh. Astral Pipes’ innovative approach and commitment to social and environmental causes resonated strongly with the jury, leading to the recognition of their exceptional work.

Additionally, the campaign was also felicitated by Indian Content Marketing Awards, Digital Dragons Awards, Digies and Videa Awards in the CSR/cause content marketing category for their efforts.

Commenting on the achievement, Kairav Engineer, VP of Astral Limited, expressed their delight, stating, “Winning multiple ABBY Awards at Goafest 2023 is an honour for Astral Foundation. These Ice Stupas have proven to be an ingenious method of storing water from the winter season and releasing it during the dry months, ensuring a reliable water supply for the local communities in Ladakh.

This remarkable achievement not only validates our commitment to making a positive impact on the communities we serve but also highlights the importance of addressing water scarcity issues exacerbated by global warming.

This recognition further motivates us to explore and implement more sustainable solutions in the future. We aim to remain persistent in our commitment to fostering environmental stewardship, promoting community well-being, and contributing to a more sustainable and resilient world. Together, we will continue to strive for a better future, making a meaningful difference in the lives of people and the environment.”
