Sustainability

Sustainability is at the core of our business. We have undertaken various sustainability initiatives to enhance socio-economic value for all our stakeholders while minimising environmental footprint of our operations.

At Jubilant Ingrevia, we aim to manufacture products for our customers through optimized utilisation of resources to minimise effect on environment. We also have state-of-the-art environment protection equipment at all our manufacturing facilities. We strive to reduce our carbon footprint through several energy consumption reduction initiatives and by the use of different renewable energy sources.

Climate Change

Jubilant understands the risks Climate Change can bring to our businesses with respect to depletion of natural resources like water and agro-based raw materials like molasses. We believe that global emission of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) is the major contributor for Climate Change. As a responsible corporate, to address climate change, we reduced specific GHG emissions from our facilities year on year, by continuously working on reduction in energy consumption, waste generation, increase in renewable energy share and enhancing the carbon sinks by planting more trees.

Sustainable Raw Materials

To remain cost competitive, we always practices efficient use of quality material in our processes. Our Company utilises molasses as its key raw material (by-product from the sugar industries). As per the life cycle based carbon footprint study, it was evident that Pyridine manufactured by Jubilant through Ethanol (manufactured from molasses) route has a much lesser carbon footprint than similar products which are manufactured through conventional petro route.

Molasses (by-product from the sugar industries), press mud and corn cob are renewable in nature and constitute 43% of the total major raw material consumption.

Water

Being a Life Sciences company, we are dependent on water for many of our manufacturing processes. At the same time, we also deeply understand how critical this natural resource is to human life and ecosystems.

We continuously work to recycle back, usable water from the effluents after treatment in order to reduce fresh water consumption. Most of our Indian manufacturing facilities are zero liquid discharge.

Year on year, we reduced specific fresh water consumption from our facilities by continuously monitoring, reviewing and optimising water consumption through process modifications and adoption of new technologies.

Circular Economy

At Jubilant Ingrevia, we aim to address the waste management through circular economy. We envisage to create an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources. We believe in reuse, sharing, repair, refurbishment, remanufacturing and recycling to create a close-loop system, minimising the use of resource inputs and the creation of waste, pollution and carbon emissions. To address the above we have undertaken few initiatives:

  • Utilisation of Fly-ash for bricks, cement, road, construction etc.
  • Converting waste from distillery into Bio-compost which helps farmers as low cost nutrient supplement for agriculture.
  • Recycle and Reuse of suitable waste through authorised third party
  • Co-processing of specific waste at cement kiln
  • Steam generation through incineration of specific category of hazardous waste

Recognitions

Our sustainability efforts have been recognised and appreciated at many national and international forums organised by institutions like Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), Indian Chemical Council (ICC) etc. The company also received an appreciation letter from GRI for our contribution towards strengthening sustainability reporting in India and our continued support of GRI’s mission and vision.
