Environmental Conservation and Renewable Energy Initiatives

Royal Classic Mills is committed to preserving this beautiful planet of ours for future generations. All products are ethically sourced, processed and delivered; right from the use of organic cotton as raw material to the finished product and final delivery. The company follows a policy of effective waste management and pollution control to protect Mother Earth. Some of these initiatives include:

  • Effluent Treatment Plant (EFT) for wastewater irrigation.
  • Renewable energy resources for environment protection.

Sustainability - ZLD

  • RCM is the first company in this region to implement Zero Liquid Discharge in 2004.
  • To retain an eco-friendly nature, installation of a reverse osmosis plant for water treatment has been undertaken with a capacity of 40 Lakh liters/day, by which the status of "Zero" effluent discharge unit have been achieved.
  • We recycle and reuse 100% of the water used for dyeing with advanced ZLD methods.
  • Zero-liquid discharge (ZLD) is a water treatment process in which all wastewater is purified and recycled. Therefore, leaving zero discharge at the end of the treatment cycle.
  • The ZLD treatment method includes ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, evaporation, crystallization, and fractional electrode-ionization.

Renewable energy resources for environment protection


Solar Panel

  • RCM has installed solar panels with a capacity of 14MW.
  • By generating this green power RCM is saving 1.4 Million kgs/year of Coal for the nation, with the equivalent avoidance of harmful carbon emission into the atmosphere.



  • RCG has installed 32 windmills from Suzlon, Gamesa, Regen, Neg-micon, of total 44MW capacity taking care of the entire power requirements of the group.
  • RCG is a renewable power surplus company. We also provide around 40,000,000 (units/year) of renewable energy to the government and nearby textile manufacturing facilities.

Our Community Engagement Initiatives

Vanathukkul Tiruppur


Vanathukkul Tiruppur was initiated as a tribute to Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, initially aiming to plant 1,000,000 trees. Today, we have surpassed this goal by planting over 18 Lakh trees and continue to add 200,000 trees annually. This mass tree plantation efforts began in 2015 to reduce carbon footprint and mitigate environmental impact.
