Essar Projects (India) Ltd, Neyveli site, received the prestigious Greentech Foundation Silver Award for Environment Management in the thermal sector. What makes this award special is that the EPIL Neyveli site is the only project that has received this award in the construction sector.
Every year, Greentech Foundation invites nominations from various sectors and recognises companies that demonstrate the highest level of commitment in environment management.
