Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Review


In continuation to achieve best environmental pollution control measures on 3R’s(Reduce Reuse & Recycle) philosophy 3 rst time in `FMCG’ e3 uent treatmenttechnology Dabur India Ltd. has implemented "Acidi3 cation Reaction System" byadding special bio-culture tank called "Acidogenic Bacteria Tank" with the helpof in-house technical team. This has delivered a drastic improvement in COD (ChemicalOxygen Demand) /BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) /Solids /Color results.

Day by day government policies are becoming stringent towards reducing environmentalimpacts on our natural resources. Dabur is committed to achieve the motive by implementingbest technology Management programs through a combination of energy water conservationminimize air emissions rainwater harvesting and solid waste recycling. All units of Daburare complying with zero liquid discharge system have minimized usage of petroleumproducts by modifying boilers into bio-fuel boilers. There has been a drastic reduction inair emissions.

Ground water is one of the major source of water for us. But Dabur is committed forSignificantly conserving the resource by installing water e3 cient technology in processwith best e3 uent treatment system like Reverse Osmosis plants to utilize back treatedwater into system. Also Dabur recharges

100% roof-top rain water via Rain water harvesting pits back to the ground. Towardsother environmental focus areas the Company has greatly reduced raw water consumption(water 31 Lts/Mt of Production) e3 uent generation (0.5 Kiloliter/ MT of production)solid-waste generation (25 kg/ MT of production) hazardous waste generation (0.04 Kg/ Mtof production) reduction in GHG emissions (Green House • generation Gases) CO2emission 0.01 Kg/MT of production SO2 0.003 kg/MT of production to reduce the overallimpact on our natural resources and environment.

Beside this all the manufacturing units have complied and are being monitored onlinefor all EHS related legal-statutory requirements laid by Government from time to time.
