#WaterConservation #Tirupur #WaterStewardship
Dear Stakeholders of Tirupur,
Wishes & Greetings!!!
In India, industry is the 2nd highest consumer of water. Industrial water demand has been increasing with the pace of industrial development. The inefficient use of water remains a normal practice. Textile is one among the significant consumer of water.
Tirupur is known for its Zero Liquid Discharge – ZLD system, in which the process water use is completely reused after Treatment. Yet Tirupur’s Manufacturers have not yet harvested the advantage of being a sustainable manufacturer, We at VRNC have been assisting Tirupur’s manufacturers to brand and position their business as “Sustainable Sourcing Destination” to their Brands. Through our Strategic Engagement with CII-GBC in the Year 2017 an MoU was facilitated between CII & TEA (Tirupur Exporters Association), Through which the Members and Stakeholders of Tirupur have been facilitated with various Sustainability Initiatives such as Energy & Resource Efficiency Audits, Cleaner Production Initiatives.
As a Next steps towards Sustainability Initiative, A New Project to help 30 Manufacturers of Tirupur Industries on Water Stewardship & Cleaner Production is Proposed and going to get implemented with World Wildlife Fund Support in Collaboration with CIIGBC.
World Wide Fund for Nature – India (WWF), Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), VRNC and Our Association are jointly organizing a consultative workshop on “Industrial Water Stewardship In The Tiruppur Textile Cluster” on Monday, 13th May 2019 by 4:00 PM at TEA Conference Hall.
WWF-India, along with like-minded partners, is launching a programme for Industrial Water Stewardship in Tiruppur textile cluster. The programme facilitates part of a broader objective of WWF – India in the conservation of the Noyyal and Bhavani rivers.
The objective of the workshop is to identify possibilities of capacity building of textile units to develop potential strategies and to identify units for Water Conservation, Clean Technology and Best Manufacturing Practices (BMP) Pilot Projects at 30 factories to reduce business water risks and increased water security within the region.
