Nearly 30% of its energy is today generated from renewable sources such as rice husk boilers and wind turbines. Initiatives such as agriculture waste boilers in our plants, installation of wind turbines, reduction of use of chemicals, reduction in weight of packaging and film used in product packaging, reduction in weight of metal crowns/polypropylene caps for plastic bottles, conversion of potato waste into bio gas help reduce load on the environment.
