The underlying motto of the Group is “We give back more to society than what we take from it”. Going much beyond the statutory requirements of law for environment protection, the company has implemented a comprehensive environmental protection plan in the plant, resulting in near zero pollution of air and water through treatment of chemical pollutants, recycling and effluent control. A team was set up before commissioning of plant to look into environmental issues. Based on the Environmental Impact Assessment made by the team, utmost care was taken to incorporate the findings and create a man made forest. The green belt was the outcome of the combined wisdom and experience of the country’s best experts in such diverse disciplines as forestry, horticulture, soil chemistry, ornithology and landscaping.


Creating ecology in a barren saline infested marshy land, over two-thirds of the plant complex (nearly 700 acres) was earmarked and has been completely developed into a green belt which extends over a kilometre with more than 0.35 million trees of 170 species, eleven water bodies with marine life, animals and birds. It is a favourite of nearly 70 species of migratory birds.

In addition to the monitoring stations at Kakinada Plant, an ambient air monitoring mobile van is also available to monitor the quality of air outside the factory premises.

The plant has the state of the art facilities for continuous monitoring of Ambient Air, Soil & Ground water quality and analyses of gaseous emissions and liquid effluents. The data is continuously analysed and recorded in the computer situated in the central laboratory.
