The Report Card

With a score of 42.75 per cent, J K Paper Mills takes the lead in environmental performance, followed by Andhra Pradesh Paper Mills Ltd with 38.50 per cent. Both these mills have been given three leaves rating. The best company would have received five leaves rating, but sadly no one deserved it. At least, not yet. Mukerian Paper Mills and Amrit Paper Mills are the tailenders but with a neck and neck race between the poor performers.
