Renault Nissan Automotive India to rejuvenate five waterbodies in Chennai

On the occasion of World Environment Day, Renault Nissan Automotive India Private Limited (RNAIPL) said it plans to rejuvenate five additional waterbodies in and around Oragadam where the company is located.

These waterbodies are in addition to the ten lakes and ponds in the Oragadam/ Kanchipuram area that RNAIPL had already committed to revitalise in 2023, bringing the total number of water bodies protected and enhanced by RNAIPL as part of its environmental commitment to 15. 

As part of its latest commitment, RNAIPL will rejuvenate five more water bodies in the locality of Ezhichur, Kaduvanchery, Vanchuvanchery, Nariyampakkam villages during FY2024. These lakes will undergo comprehensive restoration measures aimed at improving water retention, enhancing biodiversity, and providing local communities with access to fresh drinking water.

Keerthi Prakash, Managing Director, RNAIPL, said, “At RNAIPL, water management is a core focus of our manufacturing operations. By revitalising these water bodies, we aim to not only enhance biodiversity but also support local communities and enhance their well-being by preserving natural resources. We believe in the power of collective action and initiatives like these can create a lasting positive impact on the ecosystem and the lives of people around us.”

Last year, RNAIPL initiated work to restore and rejuvenate ten lakes and ponds in and around Oragadam, Kanchipuram district, where its manufacturing plant is located. Today, significant progress has been made with rejuvenation efforts completed in nine out of the ten lakes and successfully handed over to the local authorities, enhancing the water resources and bio-diversity for the neighbouring communities.

Work on the lake at Oragadam is progressing steadily and is expected to be completed in 2024. Additionally, RNAIPL has decided to undertake beautification work at this lake, including the installation of park benches, to create a serene and welcoming space for the community to enjoy at Oragadam lake.

In total, RNAIPL’s efforts helped enhance water storage capacity of over 170 million litres of water across the various water bodies around Oragadam.
