Environment Performance
Water
We have installed water conservation-related infrastructure and made efforts to sensitise our employees towards conserving water on a regular basis. We employ better technologies, recycle and reuse water to minimise consumption. Also, we organise initiatives that build a habit of consuming less water, diligently. Our efforts have paid off significantly, as we have been able to consistently curtail the amount of water withdrawn, and all our 24 campuses have turned ‘water positive’, along with adopting a ‘zero wastewater discharge’ approach. This is a result of our painstaking efforts towards constructing water storage structures, rain water harvesting facilities and ensuring no wastewater is discharged across campuses.

Campaign For Water Conservation
L&T’s Water & Effluent Treatment business at Bhatpara site kicked off a water conservation campaign with the Bhatpara Municipality, Jagaddal Police Station and Local Panghat Club. The team conducted awareness sessions on the value of water, and encouraged locals in the area to use water efficiently through local public address systems. The municipality had installed drinking water taps for the locals, but some of them were either stolen or damaged, leading to wastage. The Company repaired the existing taps and saved up to 3,800 litres of water per day.
