Muthoot Pappachan Group initiatives

As one of the largest business houses in India, Muthoot Pappachan Group (MPG) realizes that it has a commitment towards the environment and society, which led it to pioneer a whole new energy farming culture.

Wind energy being the most cost-effective resource in India today, MPG had established wind farms in Tamil Nadu as early as 1993. Today, with its manifold farms, the total installed capacity in wind power is 25 megawatts. Significantly, MPG has put plans in place to double its wind power generation capacity.

As a part of Muthoot Pappachan Group’s decarbonisation efforts, a Garden Forest is being grown at the ‘Taj Green Cove Resort & Spa, Kovalam’ – an asset owned by Muthoot Hotels and managed by Taj Hotels. The Garden Forest – a regulated forest growth at the beach resort flaunts sprawling greenery. The resort and all its facilities are tucked inside this tropical garden designed by world-renowned landscape architects from Indonesia. The construction is done with minimum disturbance to the original landscape. Many indigenous as well as imported plants, trees, shrubs, vines, creepers etc. are planted and protected with scientific care.
