Mr. Jayakumar Krishnaswamy, Managing Director, Nuvoco Vistas Corp. Ltd. says,
"Building a sustainable world is an integral part of Nuvoco's vision. This year's theme for World Environment Day is 'Celebrating Biodiversity', which emphasizes the need for nurturing plant and animal life in order to ensure natural sustainability of all life forms. Conserving and replenishing natural resources is an important step towards this goal, and Nuvoco has been steadily making progress through various responsible practices. Our sustainability goal is to reduce waste generation, and overall water and energy consumption by 5% over the previous year's baseline. Our product portfolio, too, reflects this development; for example, our 'Concreto Green' product launched last year is a result of one such effort. It consumes 25% less water but increases the strength of concrete up to 70%; making it one of the best performing products in the areas where water scarcity is a perpetual issue. We are ensuring that we make a net positive contribution to nature by minimizing our environmental footprint while maximizing the value for all our stakeholders."
