Businesses in ACTION on ENVIRONMENT
FOR MOTHER EARTH
Uflex’s environmental policy upholds its responsibility towards the planet and the environment. One third of Agri-production in India is wasted due to expiry of shelf life before it reaches the consumers. Packaging undeniably plays an important role in the reduction of wastage.
The Company being in the business of flexible packaging plays a very important role in the conservation of natural resources and reduction in carbon gas emission through recycling and reprocessing of the waste materials and saving the land fill areas.
We pay special emphasis on product and process innovation to reduce toxicity, foster recycling of materials, and minimize emissions that trigger negative climate change. We are steadily moving towards green and clean packaging. As an environmentally conscientious organization we are mindful of our responsibility towards sustainable ecosystem and biodiversity.
In addition to its continuous endeavor towards environment consciousness, Uflex stands committed to promote environmental sustainability through various initiatives in the following areas;
- Conservation of natural resources
- Restoration / replenishment and conservation of environment
- Promoting renewal energy sources
- Plantation of trees etc.
- Rainwater harvesting
- Reprocessing of Mixed Plastic waste after consumer refuse.
Natural Resource Conservation and Optimization
Uflex has rolled out natural resource conservation initiatives in partnership with Fiinovation- a technical research based consulting organization and AROH Foundation- a leading civil society organization, acclaimed for its work in social development and environmental restoration.
Natural Resource Conservation and Optimization initiatives will entail sustained engagement in four villages of Gautam Buddha Nagar District with an overarching aim to build the capacity of the community to conserve and optimize the natural resource base.
This would involve construction of carefully planned in-situ and ex-situ rainwater harvesting structures that include field bunds and farm ponds to arrest rain water, organic and inorganic mulching to protect soil cover and plantation drive.
Horticulture species shall be grown on the community and individually owned land which shall provide fodder for the livestock all year round while also supplementing the farmers’ income by bearing fruits.
Over a period of 3 years, around 400 farmers from four villages of Gautam Buddha Nagar District will stand to benefit from the programme that has been rolled out.
The structured engagement that involves participation of all stakeholders like village panchayat, farmers, local administration and social workers will result in improvement of ground water level due to percolation; better availability of water for domestic and agricultural use; reduced soil erosion and overall enhancement of the air and water quality leading to improved health quotient of village inhabitants.
