This award is being given to every industrial sector to recognize and honour, the organizations taking responsibility to contribute towards conservation and protection of the natural resources.
MRPL received this prestigious award for its innovative practices and approach towards water management in the Refinery. The water conservation efforts undertaken by the refinery during the summer months of April to June 2023 to reduce its freshwater dependence during the challenging period of water scarcity. The steps taken by the refinery have not only contributed to its own sustainability but also benefited the residents of Mangalore City. The utilisation of treated city sewage water, desalinated water from our recently commissioned Desalination Plant and internally recycled effluent for the Refinery Operations, MRPL reduced its dependence on freshwater consumption drastically at a time when Mangalore City was experiencing an acute water shortage last summer. This exemplifies MRPL’s balanced approach towards business excellence and Environmental performance.
