EFFICIENT AND GREEN PLANT DESIGN TO REDUCE OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Our manufacturing facilities have been designed and constructed on green building concept. Facilities such as Neemrana, Global Parts Centre (GPC), CIT Jaipur are LEED IGBC certified. These Garden Factories demonstrate our commitment to sustainability with water and energy optimisation.
Green roofs are essential for conserving energy through moderation of temperature. Additionally, it helps reduce the storm water runoff volume and peak flow rate dramatically. Altogether, our plants cover 1,16,500 sq metres of green roofs, the latest being 25,000 sq metres in FY17 at Vadodara.
Using Hydroponics technology, our plants require only 2% water. We also recycle carbon dioxide into the greenhouse, thereby enhancing the plants' photosynthesis, while the green walls generate oxygen, giving it back to the work environment. Our Neemrana and Vadodara plants are equipped with green walls.
With the long-term target of becoming 100% carbon neutral by 2030, we are consistently enhancing our renewable portfolio through solar power plants.

WASTE NEUTRALITY AND ELIMINATING SINGLE USE PLASTIC
Our commitment towards sustainability efforts to demonstrate Sustainable Plant - Sustainable Planet and Manufacturing Happiness is fulfilled by using Zero Waste to Landfill approach. In FY20, three of our plants i.e. Dharuhera, Gurgaon and Global Parts Centre, Neemrana achieved Zero Waste to Landfill (ZWL) Certification.
We have adopted the approach of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for the treatment or disposal of plastics used as packaging material. We are proactively working to take back equivalent quantity of plastic waste put in the market of each state through an EPR Action Plan across India. We are registered with the Central Pollution Control Board as a brand owner.
Ours manufacturing process is equipped with zero water discharge. The major water conservation measures adopted include large-scale rainwater harvesting projects that ensure water recovery and recycling and recharge of ground water. To prevent water pollution, we have also invested in an Effluent Treatment Plant which is capable of treating wastewater, which is either re-used in general activities or recycled back to processes with the help of reverse osmosis process and multi-effect evaporators, thereby reducing the freshwater dependence.
Our water sustainability strategy for future-readiness is to continue investing in Sewage/Effluent Treatment Plant (STP) and creating new Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) structures at various locations to improve the ground water table. All our facilities have achieved zero discharge status.
GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY CERTIFICATIONS
We have a periodic systematic mechanism for environmental impact assessment as a part of the Environmental Management System Certifications of ISO – 14001. We have upgraded the Environmental Management System to the latest version of ISO 14001: 2015. Our plants are also certified for Occupational Health and Safety Management System certification of OHSAS – 18001.
