Archroma, a global leader in colour and specialty chemicals, has received award for eco-innovation from conservation organisation WWF Pakistan. The award is for Archroma’s continuous efforts to foster sustainable innovations aimed at preserving dwindling ground water reserves, and developing processes that reduce energy, process time and resource consumption.

“We are continuously creating powerful new processes and products that support our customers’ sustainability ambitions. Our innovative teams are raising the bar on environmental standards and production cycles in our industries. For instance, our EarthColors sulfur dyes are developed from natural waste such as walnut and almond husks and agricultural crop waste, replacing the oil-based raw materials to create warm shades of brown on cotton fabrics. Our sustainable effluent treatment plant at Jamshoro, Pakistan, operates at zero liquid discharge in our production processes saving enormous amount of water,” said Mujtaba Rahim, CEO of Archroma, Pakistan.

The award was presented by Naeem Mughal, director general, Sindh Environmental Protection Agency, Government of Pakistan at WWF Pakistan’s annual green Office Network meeting in Karachi.

Earlier this year, the WWF granted Green Office labeling rights to Archroma’s offices in Landhi, Pakistan. (RR)
