Vellore C Srinivasan started his journey in environmental efforts as the only participating Indian corps member of King County World Conservation Corps, Seattle, USA in the year 1997.
He serves currently on the Steering Committee on Solid Waste Management in the Tamil Nadu State Planning Commission. Srinivasan has coined the term Solid and Liquid Resource management to process several by-products which otherwise if untreated is called a waste.
Through his pioneering work and vision, Srinivasan is responsible for initiating SLRM projects in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu, Meghalaya, among several other states of India.
Srinivasan's association with Association for India’s Development dates back to his pioneering work in Vellore Hill Restoration project. This project was later adopted with his help in Payvihir Eco Village which won United Nations Development Program award in 2014.
