New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki India Limited was awarded with the "Significant Achievement in Sustainability Award" at the CII ITC Sustainability award ceremony held here. S.Y. Siddiqui, Managing Executive Officer, HR & Admin, Maruti Suzuki received this award from  Union Minister for Water Resources and Parliamentary Affairs, Pawan Kumar Bansal.

The Award acknowledges Maruti Suzuki's ardent efforts to continuously better its social and environmental performance. The Per vehicle electricity consumption of Gurgaon plant reduced by 20% since 2000-01 and of Manesar plant by 38% since 2007-08.

The per vehicle water consumption of Gurgaon plant reduced by 60% since 2000-01 and of Manesar plant by 54% since 2007-08. Maruti Suzuki is a zero waste water discharge company.
In addition, 9 car models of the company comply with End of Life Vehicles (ELV) recycling norms, which means over 85% of the vehicle, is recyclable. The ELV norms are yet to be adapted in India.

Maruti Suzuki voluntarily shares its performance on the triple bottom line parameters i.e. social, economic and environmental as per the GRI G3 Reporting Guidelines to the stakeholders through the annually published Sustainability Report.

The company has been focussing on reducing the impact of its manufacturing activity on the environment. It uses Compressed Natural Gas for power generation to meet its needs at the Gurgaon and Manesar manufacturing plants.

"Sustainability has multiple facets: corporate governance, long term business growth with reasonable profits, balanced with the well-being of employees and other key stakeholders. This has been the approach of Maruti Suzuki since inception. We have to ensure that sustainability remains central to our strategy and that of our partners and reflects as an integral part of our work culture," said S.Y Siddiqui.

Maruti Suzuki has engaged with communities surrounding its Manesar plant and is running several community developmental programmes there. The company has adopted four villages in Manesar. The company will soon start similar community developmental work in villages around its upcoming R&D text track facilities in Rohtak district of Haryana.
