Water Use Efficiency

We are deeply aware of the scarcity of water availability as a natural resource and lay utmost importance to prudent use of water. We have taken several steps to ensure our reuse and recycling within the operations. We monitor the specific water withdrawn per tonne of product and have a roadmap to reduce it over a period. Our water footprint is independently verified by a 3rd party and is a part of the annual Sustainability disclosures. In line with its mandate, we also works extensively within communities to build common water assets and raise awareness on water conservation.

We have a target to improve our water withdrawal intensity by 25% in FY26 compared to FY19 baseline.

Waste Management and Circularity 

We strive towards improving our environmental performance by reducing pollution including waste management, usage /disposal of toxic and hazardous chemicals and other identifiable forms of pollution. Our manufacturing operations use state-of- the-art technology to ensure cleaner operations. Waste generated from the operations included hazardous and non-hazardous types in solid and liquid forms. In terms of circularity, we follow environmental safe industry practices of reuse and recycle. As process all the waste generated at sites are supplied to authorised recyclers for safe disposal in accordance with the State Pollution Control Board guidelines.
