For Ratna Sagar it has primarily been about quality as a basic business principle, and providing its clients and customers with services that set tough standards to follow. Quality maintenance has always gone hand-in-hand with ‘identifying and controlling environmental impact of its activities, products and services’, as recently acknowledged by AQA International, a Certified Body that measures performance and continuous improvement of professional organizations in terms of environment. The Certification of ISO 14001:2004, presented by them, is a well-deserved credit indeed!
From sensitizing school children about the importance of green revolution through the green pages of Living Science (our flagship series for classes 0-8) and other subject books to producing books with Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) paper – Ratna Sagar has proved its deep concern for a healthier green environment in every aspect of its work culture. It would be worth mentioning here that no other Indian publisher strictly adheres to these norms.
All its branch offices across India have printers that print on both sides of the paper, thus ensuring least wastage. The water purifiers and power generators are regularly checked to maintain standards as per the set norms. This guarantees its member of staff a healthy atmosphere free of noise and air pollution. Even the ball pens manufactured with the company’s logo are made of recyclable plastic – another positive step towards achieving environment-friendly goals.
This also proves an essential truth – Ratna Sagar has always walked the talk, and not idly boasted about its strengths. Its deep concern for a healthy, green environment is not confined to the pages of its books only, but is implemented as a systematic approach to setting environmental objectives and targets.
