Tata BlueScope Steel has been conferred with the prestigious ‘GreenPro Certification’ at the GreenPro Summit held in Pune on 30 May, 2019. The company’s COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel – among the world’s most advanced pre-painted products for the building and construction industry – have been certified based on their sustainability assessment. The GreenPro certification system adopts a cradle to cradle approach in assessing products on parameters that include raw materials utilised, manufacturing process, and performance during use, recycle and reuse at the end of the product life.
Tata BlueScope Steel’s sustainability policy is based on the belief that community is not just another stakeholder in the business, but the purpose of the organisation’s existence. Dedicated to both; managing operations responsibly and with continuous improvement, the company is committed to design and manufacture sustainable products and solutions that are lighter, last longer and use fewer resources to produce them. Its colour coated steel products are used in most progressive segments of India’s infrastructural, manufacturing, warehousing and commercial applications contributing to the green requirements of the project. Also, working closely with the communities around its four manufacturing locations, Tata BlueScope Steel ensures zero tolerance to any harm caused due to its operations.
Speaking on this occasion, Piyush Nahar, General Manager-Marketing, Tata BlueScope Steel, said, “We are delighted to receive this certification as sustainability is always at the foundation of all our endeavours. By developing some world-class colour coated steel products that are environment-friendly – this accreditation reinforces our belief for a greener future.”
Adding further on the greener aspects of the certified products, Mahendra Pingle, Deputy General Manager, Market Development, Tata BlueScope Steel, said, “Our product is lead free with acceptable levels of volatile organic compounds and is backed by energy-efficient THERMATECH® technology that optimises its thermal performance, ensuring lesser energy consumption. In addition to that, we have also qualified various levels such as efficient manufacturing processes, usage of energy sensitive machines, solar energy, recycling and disposal management to name a few.”
