Forbes Marshall is committed to environment friendly practices with sustainable growth.
We have aligned our processes to achieve sustainability through various initiatives in our plant, like wood elimination, zero discharge, reducing carbon footprint by optimising use of electricity, reduction in use of fossil fuel, replacing hazardous chemicals by environment friendly chemicals leading to reduction of carbon footprint and selecting gases which have negligible greenhouse impact.
We are a zero discharge compliant company. All plants are completely fitted with STP and ETP plants that recycle all effluents for use in gardening as well as domestic applications in the plants, while the residual waste is segregated with the hazardous waste.
For harnessing renewable energy, we have an array of solar panels of 140kW installed on campus which provide 18000 units of power.
Water consumption and usage monitoring is done on a regular basis using the EverSense and UTISense softwares, which are proprietary products of the Forbes Marshall Group.
Rain water is harvested into a farm pond of 10,000,000 litres capacity, catering to gardening water needs for upto two months.
Training is provided to personnel for reducing use and creation of hazardous wastes. There is huge focus on reduce, reuse and recycle in all processes.
