The 90-year-old Golden Rock Railway Workshop at Tiruchi has bagged the GreenCo Award presented by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) for implementing best environment- friendly practices besides putting in place water conservation, waste management and energy efficiency initiatives.

Engaged in a slew of activities, the workshop also received the Gold rating certification from CII for achieving the standards under the GreenCo. The GreenCo award was received by P.N.Jha, Chief Workshop Manager of the Golden Rock Workshop, at the seventh edition of Greenco Summit 2018 organised by CII in Chennai on Thursday.

The award was presented by T. Ramaswami, former Secretary, Department of Science and Technology, during the summit in which more than 200 industries participated.

A senior workshop official said the Golden Rock Railway Workshop was implementing a slew of best environment friendly practices as part of GreenCo movement in Indian Railway workshops.

Stringent assessment was done by CII assessors taking into account various green parameters such as energy efficiency, water re-cyling and conservation, renewable energy and waste management, materials recycling and mitigating green house gas emissions.

One of the best effort of the workshop was in the water conservation front wherein it recently achieved zero water discharge by reusing the entire treated water by laying dedicated pipelines inside the premises.

The assessors also complimented the eco-initiatives taken by the workshop in converting waste into environmental friendly products like fuel briquette from dry leaf and vermicomposting from waste. The workshop had already received the National Energy Conservation Award for its energy efficiency initiatives including installation of solar power plants.

The workshop is engaged in overhaul of passenger coaches and diesel locomotives besides manufacturing wagons for the Container Corporation of India.
