Jammu: HCCB (Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages) - one of India’s largest FMCG companies today announced that its factory at Jammu has achieved 100% LED lighting. This significant milestone has been accomplished by installing 300 LED lights with the aim of saving the usage of conventional power. HCCB’s Jammu factory is one of the 6 factories to achieve this milestone including the factories in Vijayawada, Ameenpur, Sanand, Siliguri and Varanasi.
In line with HCCB's vision of meeting 50% of all its energy needs through green and clean fuel by 2020, the Jammu factory completed the transformation to 100% LED lighting recently. The transition will bring about saving in power consumption to the tune of 37,500 units (KWH/annum) and help reduce carbon emission by 30,000 (kgs/annum).
KK Giri, Factory manager, HCCB Jammu, said, “We are proud to report 100% LED lighting at our factory thereby significantly contributing to a sustainable and green ecosystem. Our consistent efforts have helped us as an ecosystem to achieve 40% usage through green and clean energy. This collaborative achievement is a result of all the teamwork of our partners and associates and we thank them for their contribution.”
A number of HCCB factories also utilize cleaner energy sources like solar power and CNG fuel for meeting their energy requirements. In line with its commitment to sustainable production, HCCB has adopted a number of initiatives including the adoption of briquettes - made out of farming waste like groundnuts shells - for its boilers. Establishment of solar rooftops, energy-efficient technology and more prominent investment in high-speed manufacturing lines, are a few of the other examples.
