Ethics and Sustainability

Corporate Social Responsibility

We have a rather strong conscience. This is a major point of differentiation for us

Giving back – Initiatives towards a healthy society

At Ashima we believe in contributing to the society that nurtures us

For more than two decades, Group Ashima has been actively managing public parks and gardens as their exclusive sponsors in Ahmedabad. We have completely re-designed and re-furbished them with plantations, fountains, children’s recreation areas, jogging tracks, yoga spaces and illuminations. These parks have become daily destinations and vital nerve centers of urban lives of the city, for thousands of people.

Another major initiative taken by us is to support young cancer patients who are financially unable to bear the burden of their life saving treatments and at the same time who do not qualify for any government aids. This initiative continues round the year in conjunction with Gujarat Cancer Society.

Additionally the group also contributes towards initiatives that support slum clearance, city beautification, environment sustainability and preservation of the heritage and culture of India.

Health, Safety and Labour

  • We are passionate about only having an adult work-force and we abhor child labor
  • We actively promote safety in the work environment. We equip our workers with the latest health and safety accessories
  • We promote healthy working hours with 8 hours shifts
  • We insist on cleanliness in the workplace

Sustainability and
fair opportunity

Energy Conservation:

We actively monitor and repair equipment that exceeds energy consumption expectations. Eg, Air leakage repairs on our looms. We use high GCV coal which improves the steam to fuel ratio for better energy efficiency

High technology absorption:

We regularly replace older machinery with new technology to increase productivity and to decrease our carbon footprint

The Environment - We care

  • Effluent water treatment: State of the art plant which is 100% complaint with effluent norms at a world standard
