Business Responsibility & Sustainability Report
Reduction of water footprint by re-use & re-cycling
Marching towards becoming a carbon-neutral company
Supreme strives to reduce carbon emissions in its operations through the use of renewable energy and low-carbon fuels. Starting in FY 22-23, we have replaced LPG with PNG in the Kanpur Plant for lower carbon emissions. Further, our greenhouse gas emissions were reduced by 3.59% & avoided emissions by 36.36% in FY 2021-22. Our Hosur & Chennai plants are very close to achieving carbon neutrality by utilising 75% clean energy. We also replaced the asbestos roof sheets with metallic sheets at multiple locations across India.
Low Carbon Emission Roadmap
- FY 22-23: 76.80 million kWh with 60,700 tCO2 avoided emission.
- FY 23-24: 87.10 million kWh with 68,809 tCO2 avoided emission.
Climate change is the biggest business challenge in coming years since we are experiencing an unprecedented scale of extreme weather events such as heat waves, floods, drought, and cyclones, while mother earth’s temperature is increasing continuously every year due to the overexploitation of natural resources.
As overwhelming as the challenges are, it is our company’s unshakeable belief that our business possesses the immense capability to make a transformational contribution as a corporate to make sustainability a core component of our business strategy.
Supreme Industries Limited formed a vertical ‘Energy and Environment’ for climate change, energy efficiency and renewable energy programme to augment our vision towards sustainable development.
We have taken concrete steps to move forward in sustainable development by establishing rooftop solar power at different locations across India by investing 72 crores and procuring green energy from the market. Already 21 manufacturing units have started utilising renewable (solar/wind) energy.
Renewable Energy Roadmap
- All new plants will be equipped with renewable energy.
- Current rooftop solar capacity is 28 MWp. Plan to increase it to 36 MWp.
- Renewable hybrid energy is being utilised in 3 units.
- Group captive hybrid power utilisation started at Noida & Kanpur units.
Supreme is concerned about the global issue of water scarcity. The company has taken several measures to monitor, conserve, recycle and reduce the consumption of fresh water.
We strive to improve the groundwater level by building ponds and pits to collect & conserve rainwater. We follow/use a rain water harvesting system (catch the rain) and zero liquid discharge (stop the drain) policy for water management.
We preserve our water resources by reusing STP-treated water for internal purposes. We also adhere to the water management system's legal requirements.
