The CSR of Orientbell Tiles, as part of their commitment to protect the environment, inaugurated a 2.5-hectare pond in the village Bhora in Bulandshahr district for rejuvenation and rainwater harvesting. The pond is situated 20 km away from the factory.
The inauguration took place with local community members, SDM Ravi Shankar and Commanding Officer Namrata Shrivastava. The aim of this initiative is to recharge the amount of water used to manufacture the tiles and double the amount that gets extracted from the earth. Two rainwater harvesting pits are installed which will be able to charge approximately 1.5 lac cubic meter water per annum into the earth. Besides this pond, 270 trees have been planted as a part of the CSR initiative.
“It is our constant lookout to help build a community together and safeguard the interests of the present and future generations by providing them with a healthy and safe environment through more eco-friendly activities like this. We are looking for more such ponds near our factory area for rejuvenation,” said Anil Agarwal, COO – Orientbell Tiles. Orientbell Tiles has always been conscious of manufacturing their products in a sustainable fashion. Their first step was 20 years ago when the brand got ISO 14000 certification for the first time.
In addition to this, the company also utilizes the tiles to renovate the schools and offices in Anganwadi and rural areas. As part of that CSR initiative, Orientbell Tiles has completed 150 “Happy School” Projects.
