₹35 crore investment

RSWM has put its money where its mouth is with a 20 megawatt (MW) wind power unit, a 40 MW wind power facility, and a 32-MW in-house solar setup to power its units with green energy.

Investing ₹35 crore reflects the company’s commitment to sustainability, showcasing its vision for a greener future.

Recycling for the Win

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure – RSWM converts PET bottles into polyester fiber, increasing recycled polyester production from under 10% to a whopping 50%!

The establishment of a recycled polyester facility in Jammu highlights the company’s dedication to sustainability.

Zero liquid discharge

RSWM leaves no stone unturned in its quest for sustainability – recycling every drop of water and boasting water recycling facilities in all plants, ensuring zero liquid discharge.

Rainwater harvesting and green initiatives like artificial lakes and rainforests underscore the company’s eco-friendly ethos.

Closing the Loop with Organic Waste

Waste not, want not – RSWM converts waste into organic manure, mandating the use of 50% organic manure in its plants and setting an example with plots using 100% organic manure.

Sharma emphasizes the importance of performance metrics, aligning with industry standards, and keeping employees informed of their impact.

Community Engagement

RSWM extends its green mission to the community, placing PET bottle recycling machines in high-traffic areas like railway stations and bus terminuses, fostering awareness and community involvement.

The company collaborates with local authorities to invest in educational institutions for the community’s benefit, showcasing a holistic approach to corporate sustainability.

While facing challenges in the market, RSWM remains optimistic, viewing the tough times as part of a cycle set to pass soon.
