We are consistently recalibrating our actions to improve air quality around our plant. During FY 2021-22, we concluded the comprehensive air quality study by National Environmental Engineering & Research Institute (NEERI) and have commenced implementing the recommendations. Other key initiatives include:
We are committed to reducing our freshwater consumption as well as the impact of our operations, while also working hard to improve our water efficiency. Key interventions include:
Over 5,500 saplings have been developed for green belt augmentation and distribution in nearby villages which will act as a carbon sink. Moreover, medicinal plants are being harvested separately within plant premises.
Moreover, a state-of-the-art ploy green house with hydroponic system (95% water recovery) has been developed with ~400 species of plants.
With an aspiration of being water positive by 2025, host of conservation measures including construction of pond and rain water harvesting system are being undertaken under the umbrella of ‘Jal Se Jeevan’.
Our societal commitment does not rest on impact-based initiatives alone. However, it dovetails the community need considering environmental aspects with the organisational involvement, adding value in all initiatives.

Pond excavated by Tata Metaliks is more than just a water conservation structure. It is like a pension to me that will continue to give a regular income to my family. Fish rearing in the pond and vegetable grown in the adjoining land fetched around ₹40,000 in the last season.

Regional Samvaad by Tata Metaliks Limited has provided a platform for the tribals of West Bengal to connect with each other. I have been participating in Regional Samvaad since it started in 2019. Through this platform I met other tribal groups of the state. Had the opportunity to learn from the struggle and achievement of other tribes in the areas of tribal language and culture. This is a platform that unites the tribes of West Bengal for greater purpose of tribal development.
