Tata Steel develop green steel framework
Tata Steel have developed a GreenPro framework for steel rebars for the first time in India in collaboration with CII Green Business Centre.
GreenPro Ecolabel enables the end-users to make an informed choice about buying steel having the lowest environment impact.
The products with GreenPro label are guaranteed to be made of the highest quality standards and are sustainable as per the GreenPro standard. GreenPro certified products are also recognised in Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) green building rating system.
Steel rebars are key construction materials and have significant impact on the sustainability of buildings. There is a need for the Indian steel industry to reduce the environmental footprint during the manufacturing of steel products and supply steel having lowest environment impact for the Indian building sector.
GreenPro is a Type-1 Ecolabelling programme offered by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Green Business Centre.
So far, more than 125 building products and materials manufacturing companies have adopted GreenPro Ecolabel for 1800+ products and are available in the market for construction of Green Buildings.
K S Venkatagiri, executive director of CII Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Centre, said: “CII will support the rerolling mills and the steel product manufacturers to implement green measures, reduce their resource consumption, also gain significant market reach in the building sector by adoption of GreenPro Ecolabel for steel products.
“This would ultimately lead to a market transformation in the production and consumption of steel in India.”
Sanjiv Paul, vice president (safety, health and sustainability), Tata Steel, said: “The Green Building Movement in India is growing from strength to strength. Promoting sustainable materials is the need of the hour to ensure successful Green Building Movement.
“The GreenPro Ecolabel for Steel rebars is a step in the right direction to make the Indian steel industry green. Tata Steel will take leadership in incorporating green measures in all its steel products.
“It has been our constant endeavour to build a sustainable steel ecosystem. With GreenPro rebars we are moving a step forward towards the sustainable future.”
