This is the 6th year of association of FMC with Yes Bank Limited for promoting responsible MSMEs. FMC has worked out methodologies for for energy savings in fourteen sectors including dyeing, rubber, plastic, textiles, rice mill, auto ancillaries, sport goods, pharmaceuticals, printing & packaging, travel & tourism, chemicals, food processing, industrial engineering, and has implemented the same in seven states including Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan.
