At Jaypee we adhere to the concept of a better quality of life for everyone, now and for generations to come, whilst achieving a stable economic development. With this focus in mind the Jaypee Group made a firm commitment to the epitome of environment protection.
Institutionalizing this Green Initiative
The Jaypee Group has constituted Project Groups at the project, regional and corporate centre level to carry out specific environmental related functions. These groups initiate and sustain measures to mitigate, monitor and control the impact of project implementation on the environment.
The Groupís initial footsteps in the construction industry were as Civil Engineers and EPC contractors. Over the years the group holds the distinction of securing 54% of the private hydropower projects in the country. Being a private player in the hydro power sector, the Group has three operational projects – Baspa II, 300 MW, Vishnuprayag, 400 MW and Karcham Wangtoo a 1000 MW. All the three projects are run – of – the – river projects, that helps conserve the ecological balance without any harm done to the flora or the fauna as these projects are devoid of any rehabilitation or resettlement issues. After the commissioning of the project at the respective project site, we plant tree saplings and nurture them to make the project site all neat and green.
Jaypee's in 1983 set up cement manufacturing facilities and are a leading producer of cement in its natural producing zone. Cement Industry is considered as one of the main polluting industries that harms the eco system. To conserve the mother nature and to stop environmental degradation the cement division boosts of an Environment Management Cell. The cell hosts a fully functional laboratory with modern equipment such as High Volume Samplers, Respirable Dust Samplers, Dust Fall Equipments, Noise Monitoring Equipment, Auto Weather Station, Blast Mate and other supporting equipments for monitoring the impact of cement operations on the environment.
Limestone - a key component in the manufacture of cement, the company mines it using the Computer Aided Deposit Evaluation or CADE with the help of Holder Bank Management Consultancy (HMC), Switzerland. The area for blast is scientifically selected erstwhile keeping environmental issues in mind. All sources of dust generation in the plant are well designed for producing minimum dust.
