Waste & Spills
At L&T, we have recognised effective waste management as a key part of environment management. We reduce, reuse and recycle waste generated at our project sites to cut down our carbon footprint. We have measures in place to eliminate and contain spills and regularly report on waste and spills as part of ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 compliance. At L&T, we conduct periodic assessments internally and with independent auditors, to ensure compliance with applicable regulations.

Producing eco-friendly fly ash bricks for use at site

Over 0.7 million fly ash bricks were produced on site, through an eco-friendly process that does not require coal. The bricks were used to construct electrical chambers, foundations and gully chambers.
   
Waste to Worth

The site cast 7,000 sets with six cubes each as per the contract, which are rendered as waste after compression testing.
