other significant air emissions ITC Units ensure that
their discharges into the external physical environment are well within the specified
threshold levels. The Company is setting up detailed systems to account for total air
emissions. The adjacent diagram shows the estimated emissions in 200304 from Units

Ozone-Depleting Substances (ODS)
India is a signatory to the Montreal Protocol of 1987. The Government of India has
consequently formulated a policy to phase out various ODS on a priority basis.
ITC Units continue to scrupulously follow
the Government policy on ODS and have exhaustively identified equipment for replacement.
These equipment are being phased out in a planned manner. Progress is monitored in
periodic EHS Audits of individual Units.
