Tata Power’s wholly owned subsidiary, Coastal Gujarat Power (CGPL) along with Sahjeevan NGO has installed waste segregation centre at Tunda village, Gujarat. The objective of this initiative is to maximise waste recovery through sustainable use of biodegradable waste and recycling of waste thereby aiming to minimise waste disposal onto dump yards and landfills. Improper handling of solid waste and indiscriminate disposal in open spaces, tank beds, etc, give rise to numerous potential risks to the environment and to human health. Addressing this issue, CGPL-Tata Power Community Development Trust (TPCDT) has already established three segregation centers across villages in proximity. The Rural Solid Waste Management (RSWM) programme undertaken by the company has a focused strategy which includes - conducting an assessment of the area, training waste management team, raising public awareness and lastly collection and segregation of waste.
Tata Power is India’s largest integrated power company with a growing international presence. The company together with its subsidiaries and jointly controlled entities has presence in all the segments of the power sector viz. Fuel Security and Logistics, Generation (thermal, hydro, solar and wind), Transmission, Distribution and Trading.
