As operators in an industry that potentially has a high impact on the environment, Polyplex is conscious of its corporate responsibility towards habitat and communities.
Through an R&D initiative, Polyplex has promoted the use of bio-based renewable raw material and energy for the production of polyester film.
A key component of our carbon offset solutions includes positive eco-action through Tree Plantation drives at Bazpur, Khatima and Rayong, helping raise the local bio-diversity index.
At its plant location in Khatima, India, the Company runs a school since the past two decades with over 1600 students which provide equal educational opportunities to children from all sections of the society. In order to provide high quality education to children of the local community at Bazpur, the Company has set up "Polyplex Foundation", a society registered under the Society Registration Act, 1860, to establish and run a private unaided CBSE affiliated school.
Under a P.P.P. (Public Private Partnership) model at Bazpur and Khatima, Polyplex has adopted two local schools, providing necessary infrastructure such as furniture and fittings. Polyplex has also undertaken a slew of sports and education sponsorships, besides full scholarships to school-going children of deceased employees.
Polyplex is closely integrated into local communities through comprehensive and sustained social programmes. These include blood-donation drives at all its facilities across the world, free Eye Check-ups and Inoculation Camps in collaboration with local hospitals, installation of potable water coolers in public spaces, and active support to flood relief efforts in India and Thailand. In Rayong, Polyplex has collaborated with the Department of Fisheries to release shrimps into the Dok-Krai reservoir to generate local employment. Polyplex promotes inter-religious harmony through its even-handed support of local religious activities and celebrations.
The Company has also constituted a CSR Committee with dedicated focus on achieving the desired objectives. This Committee is committed to deliver a positive impact across social, economic and environmental parameters.
