Tata Motors’s Sanand and Pantnagar plants have been awarded Platinum Certification at CIIs GreenCo Summit 2018 held at Chennai. The coveted GreenCo Platinum Certification was based on the recently concluded assessment by a two-step evaluation process based on ten environmental parameters such as Water Management, Water Conservation, Energy Efficiency, Green Supply Chain, Life Cycle Assessment, GHG mitigation, Product Stewardship, Material Conservation, Recycling and Recyclability, Renewable Energy and Others.
Sanand Plant’s green initiatives include sizeable dependence on renewable energy (around 30%), significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption per car. More than 94% of hazardous waste is sent to cement companies for co-processing (as a fuel), plantation activities and water conservation is achieved for communities through ground water recharging and desilting of the village ponds.
On the other hand, Pantnagar plant found to be meeting Global benchmarks in some of the parameters like Waste Management and Life Cycle Assessment with an overall improvement in scores vis-α-vis previous years.
