The green initiative is aimed at restoring the serenity and green environs of the hill state for giving boost to tourism, an official spokesman said.
"There has been discernible environmental degradation in the state due to increased human activities like industrialization, hydropower projects, unauthorized constructions and illegal mining. The green initiative would go a long way in making the state green and pollution free, he added.
The spokesperson also said that a state action plan on climate change, under which various adaptation measures would be taken, has been finalized as a part of adoption and mitigation strategies and approved by the National Expert Committee.
