FMCG major HCCB was conferred with 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.

The company 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 have been based on a 200 to 800 points rating scale out of which factories scoring over 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.

Commenting on winning the awards, 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 per cent 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.
