Godrej Construction is one of the first in the RMC industry to switch to green energy.

Commenting on the business’ commitments, Abhijeet Gawde, Head of Business Development & Marketing, Godrej Construction said, "Being committed to sustainable development and a circular economy, we recycle concrete debris to make various recycled concrete materials which are in fact just as good as any other concrete product made using virgin aggregates in terms of its quality and durability parameters. The recycled concrete, which uses Construction & Demolition (C&D) concrete waste is also used for making Customized Prefabricated Concrete Products such as Box Culverts and Ducts which are being used in some of the major infrastructure projects in Mumbai. We hope that many others in the industry will follow in the endeavour to encourage a circular economy by using recycled products, which is clearly the need of the hour.”
