Corporate Social Responsibility
Protecting the environment is central to our business. We make significant investments in environment management and are committed to continually strengthen our energy efficiency and environmental performance in order to achieve sustainable development.
Attesting our environmental credentials are the numerous awards our units have won for energy conservation, environment and safety. To be sure, good environment management makes sound business sense.
Our proactive initiatives include
Choosing the right technology for our greenfield projects to ensure energy efficiency.
Enhancing material efficiency, process / equipment productivity backed by pollution prevention practices and adoption of cleaner technologies for brownfield projects.
Waste Management System for systematic collection of scrap and safe storage / disposal and re-use of wastes.
Continuous efforts to conserve resources, minimise and recycle wastes.
Controlling emissions through dry scrubbing and electrostatic precipitators and discharge through appropriate effluent treatment plants.
Rehabilitation through afforestation of mined areas and rehabilitation of waste disposal sites by greening, e.g. fly ash mound and abandoned red mud dump.
Promoting industrial recycling of waste like spent pot lining, fly ash, spent caustic, etc.
Our pledge to protect
We are committed to working with our stakeholders to realise social, environmental and economic benefits for the communities around the world.
We achieve this by using our technological skills in product design and innovation as well as through long-term partnerships to integrate sustainability into all aspects of our business.
