DAKSHIN FOUNDRY IS A GREEN FOUNDRY.
We can proudly say that we are self sufficient, with zero discharge of air, water and solid waste. We are approved by the Ministry of Environment and Forests, the Government of India, and the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board. Responsible practices and procedures ensure that all our activities are conducted while caring for the environment. We take necessary steps to maintain a safe, healthy and fair workplace for all our employees and contractors, protecting the environment, respecting and engaging with local communities, and maintaining high ethical standards.
As a part of the Water Conservation effort, Grey Water Recycling and Rain Water Harvesting have been implemented. All the rain water falling within the premises is collected in a sump and the overflow is fed into recharge pits to improve the ground water levels.
All domestic and sewage water is treated, filtered and used for gardening.
We constantly strive to reduce our carbon footprint.35% of our land is dedicated to green cover.Over 800 trees and 3000 shrubs have been planted and are nurtured by recycled and harvested rain water.
90% of the sand is reused within the foundry and the balance waste sand is collected and used to manufacture bricks. Hence we have zero solid discharge.
DUST & FUME EXTRACTION
Pollution control equipments as per the statutory requirements have been installed. Dust collected from these equipments is used for brick manufacture.
We support wildlife rescue and rehabilitation in the city of Bangalore through the organisation, People for Animals.
