GreenCo certification for Kirloskar Brothers’ Dewas plant

The GreenCo rating system assesses the green footprint of companies. The Dewas facility secured the silver rating at the company’s first GreenCo attempt.

“We have developed many innovative and sustainable solutions in our plants which follow principles of reuse, recycle and reduce. By ensuring these practices at our manufacturing facilities, our focus is to contribute to the society as a responsible corporate citizen,” said Sanjay Kirloskar, chairman and managing director of Kirloskar Brothers.

The Indian pump company says that the next step is to get GreenCo ratings for its Kaniyur plant in Tamil Nadu and its Kondhapuri plant in Maharashtra and its Sanand plant in Gujarat assessed.

Kirloskar Brothers is the first Indian pump manufacturing company to achieve the GreenCo rating.

LS Ganapati, chairman, GreenCo Assessment Panel, CII – Godrej GBC, said: “We are confident that the good work done by Kirloskar Brothers Ltd, Dewas Unit will pave the way for establishing itself as a global benchmark for pump manufacturing companies going “Green”, thereby leaving an example for others to emulate.”
