Sangam India Ltd based out of Bhilwara, Rajasthan plans to become one of the most sustainable companies in the Indian textile sector.
The BSE and NSE listed company has created a roadmap of becoming an environment-friendly player by focusing on initiatives like using organic/recycled raw materials, reducing consumption of water, energy and chemicals that pose a huge challenge for the sector at every stage of the value chain.
To begin with, SIL has already installed 2 Solar power plants of 5 MW that on average helps them to bring down their carbon footprint by at least 20% per annum.
The company also successfully runs 3 ETPs (Effluent treatment plant) and 4 STPs (Sewage treatment plant) to reduce industrial water contamination and reclaim the water for favourable purposes.
Going forward, SIL also plans to increase the use of recycled fibre, leading to lesser consumption of plastic waste by using it as a raw material.
And lastly, the company intends to focus on organic cotton to diminish greenhouse gas emissions during the harsh manufacturing processes.
SIL produces 30 million meters of PV fabric and 48 million meters of denim fabric annually. It has over 2.80 lakh spindles and 3,000 rotors.
The Group has also introduced a garment manufacturing facility with 54 seamless knitting machines that can produce 5 million pieces per annum.
The GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified company has been strategically shifting its focus on being an environment-friendly conglomerate encouraging sustainability in the Indian Textile industry.
