LUCKNOW: Aiming to achieve 100 percent carbon neutrality by next year, the 156-year-old carriage workshop Alambagh, was the oldest among the few railway units of Indian railway who were certified with GreenCo GOLD rating—a system of confederation of Indian industry (CII) to evaluates green features of companies.
Established in 1865 under Oudh and Rohilkhand railway as carriage and wagon workshop for the periodic overhauling of railway assets, the unit went under major modern transformation since 2014. Currently the workshop overhauls close to 140 broad gauge express train coaches of northern railway in a month including 40 AC and 100 non-AC.
total two workshops of norther railway including carriage and wagon workshop Jagadhri of Haryana received the gold certificate.
Speaking to TOI, chief workshop manager Manish Pandey said, “Currently we required 2 lakh units of energy per month for our coach overhauling operations and administrative work, out of the total energy consumption we generate 40 percent of the energy from our solar plants. By next year we will achieve 100% carbon neutrality as our entire energy needs will be fulfilled by solar plants. For this, the railway board has approved our project for new solar plants.”
“For measures like this which promotes green working environment including energy efficiency, water conservation, renewable energy, waste management, green supply chain, material conservation and recycling, green building features and innovations, the CII gave us GreenCo Gold certificate,” said Pandey.
For last few years, the workshop has emphasised on green supply chain, where they promote their spare parts suppliers to deliver the cargo in such packages which can be used again and again instead of one time use.
The workshop has achieved coveted International Certifications in respect of Integrated Management System (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001) in 2014, Energy Management System in July 2017 (ISO 50001), 5SWorkplace Management System in September 2017, Welding Practices ISO 3834 and GreenCo bronze in May 2018.
