Project Description

Divis efforts towards protecting the environment have exponentially increased each year. Company understand that environmental sustainability is an exercise of constant improvement and therefore have developed several initiatives to strengthen the environment within the communities and areas of their operation.

Maintaining ecological balance

During the year, Divis planted more than 2 lakh saplings around the sites of their operations. Company provided solar power to street lights, schools, gram panchayats, offices and other government offices. Divis conducted several programmes for their team and nearby communities and promoted clean and green energy.

 

Waste management

Being in the business of chemistry, Divis continue to work towards ensuring efficient waste management. During the year, Divis carried out exhaustive review exercise across all their existing processes. The following initiatives helped us manage waste effectively:

E-Waste management: Divis structured their processes to stay committed to comply with E-waste (Management & Handling) Rules 2011. The actions for disposal of E-waste generated are in line with the said Rules.

Hazardous waste disposal: Divis adopted sincere steps towards co-processing the waste generated during their manufacturing processes. After identifying that some of the waste can be used as alternative fuel for cement production, Company have partnered with cement plants near their operating facilities, thereby leading to complete thermal destruction of hazardous wastes, which were earlier incinerated in-house.

Water Management: Water continues to be of critical importance with increasing global warming across the world. Divis strive to recycle the water generated from the effluents after effective treatment. The purpose is to reduce fresh water intake and use recycled water. Divis also implemented rain water harvesting facilities, enabling effective recharge of ground water levels.

Biogas plant: Company’s recent commissioning of bio-gas plant at Visakhapatnam unit helped them to process kitchen waste and leftover food from canteen. This helped generate electricity and serve cooking needs.

 

Energy conservation

The energy saving and efficiency measures undertaken during the year, helped achieve reduction of energy consumption. Among the actions carried out, the notable actions were: installation of energy efficient machines, introduction of LED lights and improvement in insulation of plants and workshops among others. Divis follow the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) Grid emission factors, the World Resources Institute (WRI) / World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) GHG Protocol and the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) guidelines to keep a check on their carbon footprint.
