“SUSTAINABILITY IN MOTION” The two main sustainable strategies at Tata Motors: Pollution Prevention (P2) Resource Recovery (R2)
P2 STRATEGIES P2 or pollution prevention is a proactive strategy that uses fewer or smarter resources to begin requiring lesser cleanup at the final disposal. It is done by reducing or eliminating waste at the source by modifying production processes, promoting the use of non-toxic or less- toxic substances, implementing conservation techniques, and re-using materials rather than putting them into the waste stream. It assumes no waste will occur. It is an effective „getting more from less‟ strategy.
Reducing packaging material by either using sustainable packaging (replacing wood with metal) or reusing existing packaging (recycling wood). The company recycles close to 69 percent of the wood packaging thus eliminating use of fresh wood. Development of Vendor Park The company aims to source 60% of its components from the park thereby increasing its resource efficiency and reducing its emissions due to reduction in logistics and
R2 STRATEGIES This is a „getting more from the same‟ strategy where otherwise wasted resources are recovered by way of proper disposal – recycling or reconditioning. Increasing life of aggregates – ‘Recon’ business In 2010-11 a total of 13,788 engines and 8,690 other parts were reconditioned. Other resource conservation techniques like reusing engine oil for multiple testing cycles has been employed. A 200 litre engine oil barrel can now be used to test 170 engines instead of 85.
Reusing paint sludge and thinner Last year, approximately 390 tonnes of hazardous paint sludge was converted to a low quality paint suitable for floor painting.
