To reach zero waste, Eicher has also implemented safe disposal procedures for hazardous products and reduced packaging waste. The Eicher facility uses mini-hydro and solar power for 42 percent of its operations, demonstrating a proactive attitude towards reducing its environmental impact. The factory received the 2021 Smart Factory of the Year award after being recognised as a Platinum Green Factory building by the IGBC in 2016.

With its Skyline Pro-E 9m model, the 50,000th bus represents the most recent developments in electric vehicle technology from Eicher. Its efficient, clean, and silent operation is guaranteed by the integration of a dependable all-electric driveline with high-energy-storing batteries, making it ideal for urban settings.
