The organization has adopted CPCB’s guideline with the aim to establish a reverse collection mechanism and recycling of end-of-life waste. E-waste generated from manufacturing operations is disposed through registered recyclers/ dismantlers. As a brand owner, we manage our extended producer’s responsibility for collection and channelization of e-waste generated from “end-of-the-life” of our products through appointed PROs by scientifically disposing the e-waste. This move has certainly brought tranparency and accountability and has formalized/ organized the sector of e-waste management in India.
