For the management of water resources, MAHE scrupulously adheres to the 3 R’s: Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse.

MAHE works within the framework of the Energy & Environment Policy and considers the environment as a ‘living’ entity that we sustain and protect even as we go about our daily activities. As an extension to this, MAHE has created several measures to revitalize the water sources.
