The state-of-the-art Rudrapur green factory is Delta's first factory in India that incorporates eco-friendly energy saving practices and waste management system. It is registered with the Indian Green Building Council and is aiming for the highest green building accreditation. Delta India has made use of various energy efficient technologies. Natural light harvesting saves electricity and reduces carbon emission by 36,800lb. every year. Turbo ventilation saves electricity and saves 55,200lb. of carbon emission every year. The solar panels installed in the plant would reduce green house gas emission by 5mn lb. The power factor controller saves 12-15 per cent electric energy by maintaining the power factor at 0.99 instead of 0.85. The linear panel polynum insulation saves electric energy due to minimum requirement of forced cooling. The 37016.6-square-metre factory will provide an ecologically sensitive, energy-saving, waste reducing and healthy environment for the local population.

The Sewage Treatment Plant has been put up to recycle and reuse water. It functions on anaerobic bacterial action and the water is used for non-contact applications. Storm water harvesting is also carried out to conserve water.

Featured green facts include:
