This includes disease prevention, veterinary treatment, appropriate shelter management, nutrition and humane handling. We understand that dairy farming is an important source of subsidiary income to small/marginal agricultural farmers. In addition to milk, the manure provides a good source of organic matter for improving soil fertility and crop yields.

SAFE DRINKING WATER

Divi’s endeavors to make safe drinking water available to those who do not have access to potable water. Our ‘Project Sujalam – any time safe drinking water for all’ – aims to make safe drinking water accessible to the communities around our manufacturing facilities.

The water in and around Andhra Pradesh and Telangana contains dangerously high levels of fluoride which we aim to purify through our Water Purification Programme ‘SUJALAM’. We have made it our mission over the past many years to use techniques like reverse osmosis to get rid of ground water impurities like fluoride, lead, sodium, and chlorine while also installing storage water tanks in the local communities, so that continuous drinking water is available, accessible and consumable.

 

Making Safe Drinking Water Accessible ( PROJECT SUJALAM):

  • RO Plants Installed : 81
  • People Benefitted : ~2,15,000

ENVIRONMENT SUSTAINABILITY

Divi’s is proactively taking steps to restore the green cover of the planet. What better way of sustaining our ecology than to plant seeds for our future generations?

‘A tree for every occasion’ has been a tradition at Divi’s for years. All our employees are dedicated to our values of restoration and preservation with great
enthusiasm. We have led major plantation drives in the Choutuppal & Bhimili regions, where we have overseen over 1 lakh plantations in villages. Promoting greenery in these regions has helped improve the ecological balance and has created a healthy environment.

 

Plantation Covered FY2020-21:

  • Villages Covered: 30
  • Number of Plantations: ~1,35,000
  • Number of VrukshaMitras: 102
