While the factories located in the suburbs of Hyderabad and Bhubaneshwar factories bagged the Leaders Award, the Bangalore and Siliguri factories of HCCB won the Challengers Award.
Based on a well-defined framework covering the key business sustainability parameters of Purpose, Partnership, Planet and People, the award included a rigorous on-site assessment process by a team of experts on 13 parameters as the enablers of sustainability. During the on-site assessment, the panel members were impressed by the exemplary work undertaken by HCCB in various areas such as water management, implementation of TPM (Total Productive Maintenance), Safety Compliance, Work Culture, and Contractors Management System. Among other things the awards aim to acknowledge the top-performing companies that have augmented their focus on excellent sustainability strategies and extended efforts toward building a holistic business, society and environment.
Reflecting on the significance of the award, Dinesh Jadhav, Executive Director, Supply Chain, HCCB Pvt Ltd, said,“We have consistently given ourselves targets and challenges, which are often tougher than the prevailing industry norms on water, energy and effluent management. These awards will propel us further to continue to do better and be better.”
