Waste Management

As an organisation, Prism Johnson strives to minimise the waste that is generated by recycling waste materials back into the production process. It further strives to responsibly manage waste disposal and has developed Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) for plants to ensure appropriate disposal. Hazardous waste generated is disposed through SPCB approved third party vendors. The non-hazardous waste generated is sent to authorised vendors for appropriate disposal or recycling.

Water Conservation

Prism Johnson understands that water is a scarce resource and continues to optimise water consumption across all business divisions. The primary sources of water for the Company include groundwater, treated/recycled water and third party water, including municipal water supply and local tankers

Efficient Use of Energy

The Company has taken various measures towards achieving an energy efficient future. Prism Johnson is using a mix of alternate and renewable fuels in direct energy consumption to reduce the Company’s dependency on fossil fuels. Prism Cement is constantly engaged towards using green energy and has an installed capacity of 22.5 MW of solar power and 22.4 MW of Waste Heat recovery System (WHRS). In 2021-22, 36.6% of Prism Cement’s total energy consumption was sourced from WHRS and other renewable sources (solar and biomass). Further, the Company is also experimenting with other biomass based energy sources like bagasse composting.

Prism Johnson is also using de-oiled cashew shells (waste from cashew oil plants) and soya husk as fuel.

Use of Alternate Raw Materials

Being a responsible organisation, Prism Johnson is focused and committed to use raw materials efficiently with minimal wastage. It is enhancing the use of alternative raw materials that are more sustainable, lowering carbon footprint as compared to its conventional counterparts. Cement and RMC divisions commonly use fly ash, granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS), copper slag, micro fine, granite dust slurry powder, and in-house feldspar as alternative raw materials.

During 2021-22, Prism Cement used 16%, Prism RMC used 4% and HRJ used 9% alternative raw materials.


The Company’s approach is centred around protecting biodiversity and environment. It strives towards causing no negative impact on the natural habitats and takes initiatives to preserve and conserve the existing flora and fauna. In the past six years, Prism Cement has planted over 6,50,000 saplings.

As a sustainability leader, Prism Johnson ensures that none of its mining activities are undertaken in any area having vegetation or human settlements. Further, Prism Cement has undertaken biodiversity assessment for all mines as part of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
