The denim unit of Arvind Mills has become the first denim unit in the country to be certified under ISO 50001, the company said in a statement.

ISO 50001 is an International Standard for Energy Management System providing a robust framework for optimising energy efficiency.

This certification demonstrates the company’s focus on improving energy performance and reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It makes energy management a way of doing business, instead of a project by project undertaking and helps the company drive towards efficient utilization of energy in all its production processes, the statement said.

Arvind has launched a range of products under the “Neo” brand which utilizes Neo Dyeing machine that bring sustainability to deep dyeing There are many advantages of the Neo Dyeing machine.

There is no drainage of dye before or after dyeing for shade adjustment. It is a closed loop system which releases zero discharge and is equipped with integrated nitrogen technology.

Studies shows that Neo-Dyeing can lead to 5.3 per cent lower acidification, 14.8 per cent lower eutrophication, 4.2 per cent lower human toxicity, 7.9 per cent lower primary energy demand and 21.6 per cent lower fresh water consumption, compared to conventional deep dyeing methods, the statement said.

Arvind will be launching its maiden Sustainability report next month, which would demonstrate the company’s performance on various Sustainability Indicators as per Global Reporting Initiative - GRI G3 guidelines. The company plans to publish this report annually to update all its stakeholders on its sustainability efforts and their results.
