At IFFCO, we do not see industry and the environment in adversarial positions. There are inherent challenges that need to be addressed, but we believe that a holistic approach and responsible informed choices can lead to solutions that are sustainable.
IFFCO is integrating environmental protection across all its operational activities. Through optimal utilisation of energy sources, eliminating waste and wastage, adopting greener processes, developing greener products, adherence to best practices and compliance with emerging international standards, we are ensuring that along with a robust business performance, our environment too remains in good health.
We conduct periodic EHS training for our workforce to foster environmental awareness and responsibility and thereby embed environmental stewardship within our business culture. We reinforce the behaviour by setting and regularly reviewing our environmental objectives and targets.
The management of each plant or facility with its comprehensive policies on quality, environment, health and safety, is accountable for its environmental impact. At IFFCO plants and offices, the respective managers are responsible for ensuring optimal consumption of material and energy. We also work closely with our clients, suppliers, and various external stakeholders to improve environmental performance.
