The Group is dedicated to a clean, green, hygienic environment and towards conserving and preserving natural resources. It works towards preventing pollution by maximising recycling, minimising waste, reducing discharge and emissions and effectively using waste treatment plants. Our sustainability roadmap includes not only integration of pre-environmental factors in decision making, but also consistent improvement of eco-efficiency in all operations.

Owing to our commitment to create a greener, cleaner and a well conserved ecosystem, the group willingly invested in waste and effluent treatment plants, which helped to reduce toxic discharges and emissions, minimise waste and prevent pollution.

  • Observe, monitor and control the emission of air at all plants.
  • Ensure non-emission and discharge of ozone depleting substances, while also obtain license in case of any such disposal.
