K Raheja Corp’s landmark commercial offering Mindspace in Airoli East is leading the way with its end to end waste management system. Its work, in tandem with the Swatch Bharat Mission, India’s largest cleanliness drive by the PMOs office, the sustainable practices at the Business Park ensure every single piece of waste from inside of the Park is re-cycled and re-used inside the Business Park itself, with zero contribution to the City’s municipal waste. Reviewing the same on his recent business visit to the city was Vinod Jindal, Joint Secretary Swacch Bharat Mission, along with Dr. N. Ramaswami, Commissioner Navi Mumbai who congratulated the team for their initiatives and hard work.
Amongst its several other initiatives, Mindspace SEZ at Airoli East, has installed OWC units, to compost wet waste generated at the thriving Business Park. With a total capacity of these units at approximately 4 tons per day, it effectively ensures recycling of wet waste. Additionally, Mindspace Business Park also has horticulture shredder machines to process horticulture waste, and multiple active vermicomposting beds along with portable leaf composting units. The manure generated from above facilities is utilised to maintain the green landscape and also in urban farming which sees the cultivation of organic vegetables on ground.
The BMC had conducted the WMA between December 25, 2016 and October 2, 2017 through out Mumbai as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan (SBA) announced by the Government of India.

I am glad that I have come across such concepts being implemented at a Commercial Business Park. I would like to urge all other companies to put in place such initiatives which will work towards the betterment of our society at large.”
