ONGC’s NBP Green Heights has been certified as a zero waste build by Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai.

It was based on the audit carried out by a team of experts from MCGM  to ascertain if the systems installed in NBP Green Heights are being maintained as per the design and specifications.

ONGC has formalised its corporate policy on climate change and sustainability, the only PSU in India to have done so, said a press release.

ONGC Green Building – NBP Green Heights had been efficiently segregating and processing its solid and liquid waste since inception in 2015.

The system of segregating the waste and treating it through various techniques like STP classified Waste bins, etc. ensures that every single drop of liquid or solid waste is processed as per the municipal Solid waste management rule 2016.

There is no liquid discharge/disposal from the building to the municipal drainage system.

The building also uses liquid waste generated in washrooms and pantries after treatment in STP (cap. 110 kl/day). This results in annual savings of Rs. 2.5 lakh.
