Sustainability is at the core of what we do, and drives our growth and risk management philosophy. We have specific, strategic commitments through which we position ourselves in the market and meet the evolving challenges across our operations and value chain.
We believe in minimizing our carbon footprint, and have developed manufacturing processes that are sensitive to the environment and adhere to the laws designed to protect our planet. Over 80% of Ascent’s energy requirements are fulfilled by investments in onshore windmills and other renewable energy generating assets.
We have been recognized for our advanced two-stage activated sludge biological treatment plant with extended aeration. This treatment is carried out in addition to our membership in the local common effluent treatment plant (CETP).
Along with reduction at source, we carry out waste segregation and treat our difficult to degrade waste water by using multiple effect evaporators and spray dryers.
Ascent Foundation was created out of a desire to give back to the community. We support not for profit educational and healthcare organizations such as Shanti Niketan School (Balotra, Rajasthan), Abhisar (Ahmedabad, Gujarat), and the Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti also known as Jaipur Foot (global operations) through the Ascent Foundation.
