PowerGrid inaugurates waste paper recycling plant in Haryana

On the occasion of the 23rd raising day, POWERGRID a Navratna PSU, is launching its maiden initiative in the field of Sustainable Development, with the inauguration of a ‘Waste Paper Recycling Plant’. The plant was inaugurated by  R N Nayak, CMD, POWERGRID.

 Our country faces severe environmental degradation in which, ever-increasing paper use and disposal is causing a large amount of waste. Since making of 1 tone of paper requires cutting of 17 mature trees and approx 10 litres of water is needed for the production of 1 A4 sheet of paper, POWERGRID decided to recycle used / waste paper to minimize the negative impact on the environment. This is another first in the list of many endeavors like; POWERGRID is the first company in Asia to have a well defined Environment & Social Policy & Procedure. It is also the first company in India and the second in the world to be certified with a PAS based Integrated Management Section.
