On the occasion of World Environment Day, BPCL is proud to announce a significant milestone in water conservation. Through its relentless commitment to sustainable practices, BPCL has successfully saved an impressive 2.5 billion litres of water in the year 2023. This accomplishment not only highlights BPCL’s dedication to environmental stewardship but also demonstrates the positive impact that collective efforts can have on our precious water resources.
Water scarcity is a pressing global issue, and BPCL recognizes the urgency to address it. By implementing various innovative initiatives and robust water management strategies, BPCL has been able to make a substantial difference. The amount of water saved by BPCL is equivalent to fulfilling the annual water needs of approximately 50,000 families. This achievement underscores BPCL’s mission to contribute to a sustainable future and preserve natural resources for generations to come.
In a poignant video released by BPCL, the stark contrast between water usage in urban cities and rural villages is vividly depicted. The video sheds light on the careless wastage of water that often occurs in urban areas, where people leave taps running while performing daily chores. Meanwhile, individuals in rural villages endure hours of waiting in queues just to obtain a basic necessity like water. The stark contrast serves as a wake-up call for all of us to be mindful of our water consumption and adopt responsible practices.
BPCL remains committed to water conservation and has made it an integral part of its corporate sustainability agenda. Through its dedicated efforts and the implementation of various initiatives such as Project BOOND, in which BPCL has brought about transformative changes. This milestone is a testament to BPCL’s commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship. Project BOOND has brought about transformative changes in over 230 villages across Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Andhra Pradesh. By employing innovative methods such as rainwater harvesting, well renovation, tank desiltation, and the construction of various water conservation structures, BPCL has augmented water availability and increased groundwater levels. The program’s sustainability is ensured through close community participation and “Shramdaan.” BPCL’s efforts not only address water scarcity but also instill a sense of responsibility towards water usage and promote the adoption of sustainable practices.
On this World Environment Day, BPCL urges individuals, communities, and organizations to join hands in conserving water. Together, we can make a substantial difference and ensure that our future generations inherit a planet with abundant water resources. Let us remember that every drop counts and that our collective actions today will shape a sustainable tomorrow.
