With an aspiration of being water positive by 2025, a host of conservation measures, including the construction of a pond and rainwater harvesting system, are being undertaken under the umbrella of ‘Jal Se Jeevan.’
The Company, in FY 2019-20, embarked on an ambitious journey to become ‘water positive’ by FY 2024-25 through focused interventions including a steep reduction in water consumption, creation of water conservation & harvesting structures, deepening of ponds, etc. in and around our plant. In line with making water available to the community, the Jal se Jeevan project saw further progress during the year by excavating several rainwater capturing ponds and infrastructure. These two ambitious projects (to be conducted in two phases) are expected to create a significant positive impact on the community near the plant. Despite COVID-19 constraints, the Company’s employees clocked 7246 Employee Volunteering (EV) hours in community service. During the year under review, a sum of 540 lakhs was contributed to the Sadbhavna Trust for CSR and Affirmative Action initiatives against the minimum statutory requirement of 478.13 lakhs for the year under review.
