HCCB Wins The ‘Responsible Corporate Citizen Award’ At The India Green Manufacturing Challenge 2021 Conducted By International Research Institute Of Manufacturing (IRIM)

  • 7 HCCB factories win Gold awards at the India Green Manufacturing Challenge

Bengaluru, August 03, 2021 - HCCB - one of India’s top FMCG companies – was conferred the ‘Responsible Corporate Citizen Award’ at the prestigious India Green Manufacturing Challenge 2021 conducted annually by the International Research Institute of Manufacturing (IRIM). The award recognizes HCCB’s work in the areas of green manufacturing, community development and corporate governance among others. HCCB also won 7 gold awards conferred to its two factories based in Bidadi (near Bangalore) and one each in Sanand and Goblej (near Ahmedabad), Khordha (near Bhubaneshwar), Ameenpur (near Hyderabad), and Guntur (near Vijayawada).

The Gold awards are based on a 200-to-800-point rating scale out of which factories scoring more than 700 points qualify for Gold. This rating is achieved through a structured assessment of factories on 15 indicators of the IRIM Green Manufacturing Framework. The assessment is customized for each facility by assigning unique weightage to each indicator based on the organization's priorities towards environmental impact, business imperatives and probability of success. The process includes rigorous onsite assessments.

Speaking on the awards won, Neeraj Garg, CEO, HCCB, said, “It is heartening to note that HCCB and nearly 50 per cent of all our factories have been recognized for our commitment to green manufacturing practices. As a company it has been our endeavour to go beyond the norms to strengthen our safety culture and ensure optimum utilization of resources such as water, energy, packaging materials, effluent management, and asset utilization. My deepest congratulations to all the teams and their families. WE are continuing to invest in our factories despite a very challenging pandemic situation. We are positive about turning the corner for our business next year and win many more awards.”

The jury considered several parameters ranging from HCCB sourcing 50% of its energy needs through new and renewable energy, adopting tools and techniques to become a digital enterprise, providing skill development training to unemployed youth, implementing a robust plastic waste management program in 35 cities etc. The company had also showcased its nation-wide water conservation projects, renewable & clean energy programs and model village development initiatives to the jury.

The HCCB factories among other things won the recognition for their efforts in using biofuel for boilers; achieving 100% LED lighting; using new and renewable sources of energy; recycling plastic waste; and minimizing the use of raw materials through various initiatives.
