Redefining Sustainability at OC
Sustainability is not just a buzzword at OC. It is an inherent part of our research and operations.
Since our inception, we have extensively cared about environment protection and minimized industrial waste. With every product we make, we take rigorous measures to maximize their longevity and stability. From a successful Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) plant we’re now heading towards significant reduction in fresh water intake in the coming years. We see sustainability as a journey for our business that requires continuous learning, adaptation, and improvement of our industrial practices. Guiding us in that journey is our set of principles, defined as ANANT. They symbolize our continual efforts towards global sustainability.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals is a call to end the problems plaguing the world and ranges from adopting environmental friendly measures to taking measures to end poverty. Inspired from the framework of the SDGs espoused by the UN, we have developed our own focused goals named ANANT to help us align with the broader outcomes expected from the achievement of the SDGs.
Following are certain areas of our immediate focus that and we’re extensively working on :
ANANT focuses on improving environmental safety by taking a pledge to work on Integrated Waste Management system. Following the principles of reducing carbon footprint, using renewable energy, and minimising raw material consumption – Reduce, Recycle, Re-use.
Our people are our biggest strength and their wellness is our top priority. At OC Specialties, we have taken careful steps to ensure our employees’ physical, mental, and financial wellbeing. This enables our team to contribute more meaningfully to their personal and professional lives.
