International Business Units

Our International Business Units (IBU) in Bahrain, Bangladesh, Dubai, Egypt, Fiji, Nepal, Oman, Singapore and Sri Lanka (AP Lanka) are included in the scope of reporting for FY 2018-19.

Since these units have different target and performance levels vis-à-vis their Indian counterparts, we are reporting them separately in this section. Our core ethos compels us to endorse environment-friendly procedures and processes across these units similar to our India operations. Our strategic approach has helped us decrease our environmental impact as we work on various 3R initiatives—Reuse, Reduce and Recycle—to minimise hazardous wastes.

1. Solar power generation at Fiji Unit

78 kWp grid-on solar power plant was commissioned at Fiji on 13th Oct 2017. The solar power data below is from the date of commissioning to 28th March 2019.

  • Solar power generation: 179.5 MWh
  • CO2 production avoided: 126 tonnes
  • Savings: 71,590 (FJD)

2. VOC reduction of stack emissions at UAE Unit

To ensure reduced VOCs of stack emissions, we have implemented the following solutions:

  • The wet scrubbing/carbon filtration system was installed and commissioned
  • A new water spray tower with 166 spray nozzles was installed and commissioned

3. Bahrain unit diminishes environmental footprint

  • Initiated use of ETP-treated water for washing the mixing vessel. Reduced water consumption by 10,000-12,000 litres/month, thereby saving an expensive resource for the Middle East
  • Received permission for direct discharge of ETP treated water to municipal Industrial waste water line for CETP thus reducing Carbon footprint

4. Oman unit optimises the use of non-process water

  • Jet shower has been provided for cleaning of utensils in the canteen
  • Leaking pipes used for gardening have been replaced
  • Wash water from emulsion tank cleaning is reused in production batches wherever possible within the limits of defined SOP
