Oct '12
Reliance Industries Limited (RIL)’s SEZ Refinery at Jamnagar has won the prestigious ‘Globe of Honor Award’ for the excellence in Environmental management by the British Safety Council, London. RIL's Jamnagar SEZ Refinery is the only Indian entity to make it to the elite list.

This is the first time that a Reliance Industries Limited manufacturing site has been bestowed upon with such a coveted award. The Award will be presented at a celebratory luncheon at Mansion House in the City of London on Friday 23 November, 2012.

In all, there were 13 applicants and 9 received the Globe of Honor. All applications for the Globe of honor were marked by an independent adjudicator and SEZ Refinery received 68 marks out of 72.

To be eligible for the award which is a five star environment audit, the applicant organizations should demonstrate a culture of best practice for health and safety throughout the business – from the boardroom to the shop floor.

The British Safety Council is a global health, safety and environmental charity. For over 50 years, the British Safety Council has been a champion of workplace health and safety. Founded in 1957, the British Safety Council has progressed to become one of the largest independent occupational health, safety and environmental organizations in the world.
