Active policies of environment friendly practices are followed, involving employee training, resource conservation and material control. Effluents from the latex plants and the glove plants are thoroughly processed and converted into usable water. Part of this cleaned water is recycled for the factory operations and the rest is used for irrigation at our vegetable farms situated within the factory premises. A series of gasifiers have been installed to meet the energy requirements, for reducing the dependence on non-renewable sources and for minimizing the toxic emissions.

In the year 1993 we thought of contributing to the nation's energy requirement by investing in Wind Energy Generation. Renewable non-conventional energy generated at our own windmill farms, set up in co-operation with the State Government, meets the entire internal energy requirements. Excess power is sold to the Tamilnadu Electricity Board.
KAPL's commitment for environmentally safe manufacturing practices and procedures has nullified this myth and proven that even in the rubber industry ISO: 14001 accreditation is very much feasible. And the fact that all of KAPL's manufacturing units received this accreditation simultaneously is no small achievement.
