Tata Motors’ one of India’s leading automobile companies today announced that its Sanand and Pantnagar plants have been awarded Platinum Certification at CII’s GreenCo Summit 2018 held at Chennai.

The assessors congratulated the young and enthusiastic team of Sanand Plant for their learning attitude and lauded the efforts towards various green initiatives including considerable amount of renewable energy consumption (around 30%), significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption per car. The assessors praised Sanand team for taking measures such as sending more than 94% of hazardous waste to cement companies for co-processing (as a fuel), plantation activities and water conservation for communities through ground water recharging and desilting of the village ponds.
During assessment at the Pantnagar plant, the team found the plant to be meeting Global benchmarks in some of the parameters like Waste Management and Life Cycle Assessment with an overall improvement in scores vis-à-vis previous years. The assessors congratulated the Pantnagar Plant team for displaying excellent leadership from the top, the commitment to go green and the exemplary efforts put in by the team, throughout the assessment process.
