ABB India hits 52-week high on turning half of its manufacturing locations ‚Äėwater positive‚Äô

The company announced that it has implemented a systematic approach towards ‚ÄėWater Positivity‚Äô to replenish more water than it consumes at half of its manufacturing locations.

On Friday, ABB India shares surged 2.07% to trade at a fresh 52-week high of Rs 5986.95, from its previous closing of Rs 5865.35 on the BSE.

Towards Water Positivity

ABB India today announced that its Peenya campus 1 in Bengaluru has been certified water positive by the Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA) Council. With this, three out of its six manufacturing locations are now ‚Äėwater positive‚Äô.

The Peenya unit currently has 5 cross-wave technology-based recharge tanks and 1 conventional recharge well to capture the runoff and recharge the groundwater table. The installation of waterefficient fixtures and fittings reduced the freshwater consumption for domestic purposes, whereas the domestic wastewater generated within the site is treated through the in-house sewage treatment plant (STP) and recycled for gardening through efficient water sprinklers as well as a drip-based irrigation system resulting in water recyclability enhancement by 12% as compared to previous year.

The water positive index shows ABB India’s enhanced dependency on secondary water sources such as treated wastewater, and rainwater and lesser dependency on groundwater sources for its manufacturing facilities.

Company profile

ABB India is one of India’s leading global technology and automation company and has been operational for more than seven decades. It has plants in Bengaluru in Karnataka, Faridabad in Haryana, Nashik in Maharashtra and Vadodara in Gujarat.
