Tata Tiscon Rebar Brand Receives CII GreenPro Certification
Tata Steel has become the first Indian steel company to receive the GreenPro Certification for rebars, which enables the end users to make an informed choice about buying steel having the lowest environmental impact. Tata Steel Vice President Steel Marketing & Sales Mr Peeyush Gupta said “GreenPro Ecolabel for rebars is a significant milestone in our endeavour to create sustainable products for building homes and infrastructure. Our R&D, Technology and Manufacturing teams have developed steel products with an environment friendly footprint. We are proud to announce that all the rebar manufacturing units connected with Tata Steel are GreenPro certified.”
Earlier this year, Tata Steel collaborated with CII Green Business Centre (nd other relevant stakeholders, to develop a GreenPro framework for steel rebars. It helped in setting up the country’s first type 1 eco-label – GreenPro Standard for Steel Rebars.
Steel rebars are used in multiple industries and extensively used for construction including home building. Green buildings are critical for future growth and development where the GreenPro certified rebars will have a notable impact in reducing the environment footprint.
GreenPro is a type 1 eco-label by CII GBC for building materials and it is recognised in IGBC Green Building Rating System. Builders who are opting for green building rating system will now be able to benefit from using Tata Tiscon rebars in their construction. The objective of the GreenPro eco-labelling programme is to promote sustainable products in the building sector.
Tata Tiscon is the fifth product of Tata Steel to receive the GreenPro certification. The four products of the Company which received the GreenPro certification earlier include GGBS (Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag), Tata Pravesh (Steel Doors & Windows), Tata Pipes (Steel Pipes) and Tata Structura (Structural Steel Sections).
