ENVIRONMENTAL  MANAGEMENT

The global awareness of environmental protection and its  management has been well acknowledged by Penden cement in whatsoever small way  it could contribute. The very existence of the plant in lush green surroundings  has encouraged Penden Cement to preserve the natural ecosystem with minimum  environmental impacts.

In pursuance of excellence in housekeeping and clean  ambient environment, Penden Cement has invested substantial financial resources  in installing air pollution control equipment and maintaining the rich flora  around the factory premises.

Penden Cement also has set up an Environment  Cell that constantly monitors ambient air quality and fully implementation of  all environmental norms.
