Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Southern Region EHS Excellence Awards 2020

Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Southern Region has spearheaded the “Excellence Award in Environment, Health and Safety (EHS)” for the companies who excel in EHS practices and implement it effectively in the work area. Our Cuddalore site has secured a 5 Star rating for excellence in EHS practices, Puducherry has secured 4 Star rating for commitment to EHS practices, Mangaluru and SRC has secured 3 Star rating for appreciation to EHS practices.

Pharmaceutical Industry Principles for Responsible Supply Chain Management


The implementation of the EHS framework is ensured by institutionalising a robust EHS Management System, adequately supported by a well-defined organisational structure. EHS performance is periodically reviewed at all our facilities and corporate levels to monitor the progress against EHS improvement plans.

Risk Based Process Safety Management Systems (RBPSM)

We have made significant safety improvements in one of our facility located in Cuddalore by implementation of Risk Based Process Safety Management(RBPSM) systems to the requirements of the PSM developed by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) & CCPS. Implementation of RBPSM integrated all aspects of risks and brought the process associated risks under control.


Investments have been made in process improvements as well as upgrading of effluent treatment plants, using membrane-based technologies, multi-effect evaporators (MEE), Agitated Thin Film dryers. With this equipment installed for recycling of the treated effluent, we have achieved the status of “zero liquid discharge” at our manufacturing and R & D facilities located in Cuddalore, Puducherry, Mangaluru, Ambernath, Bengaluru & Chennai. We have also converted coal-fired boiler to biomass briquettes/ Piped Natural Gas (PNG) fired plants which led to reduce our Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Sustainability Goals



We accord the highest priority to Industrial hygiene monitoring at workplace and health assessment of all employees at facilities. Our plant and processes are continuously upgraded to improve hygiene and health standards. Necessary training is imparted to employees to enhance their awareness of health and safety related matters.
