In order to create awareness among the masses, activities like tree plantation, talks on air pollution, distribution of saplings, seeds and biodegradable bags etc. were carried out by HPCL across the country. On a larger scale, HPCL is committed to controlling the air pollution in our country by implementing recommendations of ‘Auto Fuel Policy-2025’ and introducing BS-IV and BS-VI fuels across the country. This, coupled with the introduction of clean fuels like CNG for the transport sector, will have a far-reaching impact in reducing air pollution.
