Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has been adjudged the Global Winner of ‘The DuPont Operational Excellence Award – 2017’. The bi-annual DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards recognise the most significant innovative projects delivering concrete results.
Commenting on the award, Shri Hital Meswani, Executive Director of RIL, said: “This award is a global recognition of RIL’s demonstrated ability of unparalleled efficient operations and excellent project execution. It showcases RIL’s sustainable approach towards Operational Excellence.”
Recognising the digital foundation that was built during ‘Business Transformation’, a scalable model was shaped with formalized procedures, policies and practices, capturing and documenting knowledge which hitherto existed in minds. This was further codified and documented with a common language and definitions across the group with the introduction of Reliance Management System and, in particular, the Operating Management System.
The DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards recognise organizations which have found innovative ways of making an enduring difference to the safety and health of workers, to the environment, and to productivity. Since its launch in 2002, the bi-annual event has grown to become a prominent global fixture attracting entries from a wide range of industries and countries.
Currently in its 13th edition, the DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards comprise ‘The DuPont Safety Award’, ‘The DuPont Sustainability Award’, and ‘The DuPont Operations Excellence Award’, selected by an independent jury.
RIL will be receiving the award on 4th September 2017, at a ceremony during the ‘XXI World Congress of Safety and Health at Work 2017’ in Singapore.
