About Us

Sustainability

Amidst the echoes of environment, climate change, and sustainable development worldwide, NBC Bearings has gone above and beyond boundaries to implement sustainability measures with a view to reduce carbon footprint.

Our GHG Emission Metrics

To calculate the Green House Gas emissions inventory, we collect activity data from the various locations we identified as sources of GHG emissions. We further aggregate this to the corporate level for calculating NBC Bearing’s total Carbon footprint. As per the data analysed for immediate bearing manufacturing competitors, for Carbon emission from all 94 manufacturing units around the globe, emission is around 1.225 M tonnes of the net equivalent. On the contrary, NBC Bearings has around 0.105 M tonnes of net equivalent Carbon emission from its 5 manufacturing units.

Energy Management System

EMS Portal used for real time monitoring of power consumptions trends, capturing various parameters which help us in real-time monitoring and faster decision making to save power and perform predictive maintenance. Our Jaipur plant is also ISO 50001 certified which is a global recognition of energy management systems.

Paper Rationalization

To reduce our carbon foot print. We started our endeavor for paperless factory. With focus of digitization of all the information captured manually impacting the reduction in CO2 equivalent consumed across plants.

Renewal Power Generation

There has been increase in generation and use of solar energy. Our solar power consumption has increased from 2.6% in 2016-17 to 3.3 % in 2019-20

Environment friendly products

Our R&D function is focused on providing innovative and effective technology with focus on care for the environment and resource conservation.

Rain water harvesting and Water conservation

We have taken multiple initiatives to optimize fresh water usage and operate in prescribed limit. Also we have facility for rain water harvesting within factory premise. NBC Bearing’s rainwater harvesting exercise has ensured saving more than 6 million litres of water annually. We have reduced water consumption in our Jaipur Plant by 40% in last five years.

Environment friendly buildings

Our plants in Jaipur and Vadodara are Green Factory Building Platinum Certification by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC). Our Jaipur plant, being over 70 years old, is one of the oldest building in the country to have this certification.

Waste management

Wastewater released from the factory is treated on site in the Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) and Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). This is in turn used for landscaping the campus areas, consequently resulting in zero discharge outside of the plant.

Reusable/Returnable packaging

We have also begun to use returnable packaging solutions that helps in reduction of packaging waste. Our larger objective lies in reducing energy consumption and improving energy efficiency to support our overarching goal of lowering GHG emissions and Carbon Footprint.
