We are not just working towards improving the present but future too. In a significant milestone on our sustainability journey, we’ve become India’s first FMEG Company to achieve ‘Water Positive’ status.
A number of initiatives were undertaken across all plants to achieve this status. All plant sites are zero discharge facilities and are equipped with modern water harvesting systems. The company reduced its water usage by regular metering, monitoring and controlling of utilities consumption at all manufacturing sites.
Forests forms an integral part of our ecosystem and helps in promoting and nurturing biodiversity, they also acts as carbon sink and are important in regulating climate and sustaining communities. Conserving nature is the best gift we can provide to our future generations. Foreseeing a vision of better and greener tomorrow, every year we plant saplings in the community. We have entered into a MoU with Madhya Pradesh Van Vikas Nigam limited for the period 2018 to 2027 wherein we are planting 4 lakhs tree on an annual basis. The Survival rate of the trees are more than 85% as per the survey conducted by MPRVVN on account of regular monitoring, ensuring availability of water supply, involvement of local administration and Panchayat. More than 18 Lac trees planted in Bhopal, Neemrana and Alwar till date.
