Environment, Health and Safety
We are an ISO 14001-2004 certified organization and ensure EMS compliance at all levels and adhere to all the stipulated pollution control norms. We recognize that a key element of successful process design is the minimization of environmental impact. A continuous process evaluation, monitoring and waste recovery ensures that this focus is maintained in all our plants.
Besides conforming to cGMP and cGLP, we give due attention to Safety, Health & Environmental aspects. This is achieved by identification of hazards and assessment of risk involved in various activities right from product development stage to the plant. We try to comprehend and incorporate necessary corrective measures at the design stage itself.
Shilpa continuously reduces environmental impact through optimal waste management and waste water/air emission treatment facilities. We focus on improving material efficiency, reducing waste generation and enhancing recovery and reuse of discarded material. We are proud to assert that 25% of the total site area in our facilities is under green belt. Some pro-active initiatives for better EHS are:
- All our plants & facilities are equipped with zero discharge effluent treatment plant and continuously monitor & improve operations. We use recycled treated waste water & reduced fresh water consumption by 40%.
- We are using renewable energy like wind power for our electrical energy requirements & bio mass fuels for thermal energy requirements. The company has registered the biomass Fired Boiler with UNFCC Clean development Mechanism , under Kyoto Protocol Reg. no: 3926
- We are continuously implementing energy conservation programs & striving to achieving energy economies & investing in latest best available technologies
- We have invested in developing green chemistry to reduce waste generation & develop clean & efficient processes where ever possible.
We segregate effluents to generate the solid waste usable by other industries, thereby reducing the solid waste disposal to the TSDF
