Tata Steel has collaborated with CII Green Business Centre and other stakeholders in the Indian Steel sector to develop GreenPro framework for steel rebars, for first time in India. 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.
