Mumbai, February 17th, 2022: MG Motor has always been vocal about creating a sustainable automotive industry in India. The company has recently acquired ISO certification on Environment Management System (ISO 14001 – 2015) and Occupational, Health & Safety Management System (ISO 45001 – 2018). Furthermore, MG is also working towards instilling a carbon-neutral & net-zero emission approach in its operations.
Apart from the ISO certifications, MG Motor has already implemented a few other sustainable initiatives, including planting more than 7000 trees and adding 12 rainwater recharge wells to improve the groundwater level. MG has also worked on increasing energy productivity through Energy Committee and becoming a zero-waste landfill site. Furthermore, the MGI plant has been de-notified by State Government from MAH (Major Accident Hazard unit) to the non-MAH unit by eliminating the major hazard installation of 92 MT LPG & 22 MT LNG storage from premises.
MG Motor’s 360-degree approach to sustainability has empowered the company to go above and beyond. The company has been at the forefront of promoting EV adoption; recycling batteries and launching modern EVs for its customers. Its existing partnership with Attero enables recycling Li-ion batteries of electric vehicles in India, creating an end-to-end EV ecosystem. Its other partnership with TES-AMM also ensures responsible recycling of EV batteries in the country.
The company has collaborated with CleanMax to emerge as the first passenger car manufacturer to adopt wind-solar hybrid energy. As a part of the partnership, MG’s Halol manufacturing hub will use 4.85 MW of wind-solar power supplied by CleanMax to conduct its operations, eliminating the use of 2 lakh Million Tonnes of carbon dioxide in 15 years which is equivalent to planting more than 13 lakh trees. MG Motor has also announced its latest initiative (Enviro Wash) to promote dry car washing, encouraging people to save up to 14 lakh litres of water per month per car. The company thrives on making sustainable mobility greener and intends to roll out other sustainable initiatives in the future.
