ABB India’s Peenya campus rated 'water positive' by GRIHA

Half of ABB India’s manufacturing locations now water positive

  • By ICN Bureau | March 23, 2024

ABB India announced that its Peenya campus in Bengaluru has been certified water positive by the Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA) Council.

With this, three out of its six manufacturing locations are now 'water positive'. Their Peenya campus has a water positivity index of 1.05, demonstrating its contribution towards replenishing a much greater quantity of water for the environment than withdrawals for its manufacturing facilities.

Previously, the Nelamangala campus and Nashik Plant had received a 'water positive' certification from the GRIHA Council, in association with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).

The Peenya unit currently has 5 cross-wave technology-based recharge tanks and 1 conventional recharge well to capture the runoff and recharge the groundwater table.

The water positive index shows ABB India's enhanced dependency on secondary water sources such as treated wastewater, and rainwater and lesser dependency on groundwater sources for its manufacturing facilities.

"At ABB, 'sustainability in practice' is at the core of everything we do and is a key part of our company's purpose. Water is a precious resource, and its preservation is critical for us. Achieving water positivity for 50 percent of our manufacturing locations is a significant achievement in our journey towards resource preservation and we remain committed to turning all our manufacturing locations 'water positive' in coming years," said Sanjeev Sharma, Country Head and Managing Director, ABB India.
