Tata Steel’s Kalinganagar and Meramandali plants receive ResponsibleSteel Certification

Mumbai: Tata Steel’s Kalinganagar and Meramandali plants have received the prestigious ResponsibleSteel Certification.

This comes after Tata Steel’s Jamshedpur plant’s achievement as the first Indian steel plant to receive the certification in 2022.

In India, Tata Steel now has more than 90% of its steel production from ResponsibleSteel-certified sites, the company said.

Three facilities in Jamshedpur – Steel Works, Tubes Division, and Cold Rolling Mill (Bara) were awarded the certification in October 2022.

“The inclusion of Kalinganagar and Meramandali plants reaffirms the company’s dedication to responsible business practices and environmental stewardship,” the company said in a media statement.

ResponsibleSteel is the steel industry’s first global multi-stakeholder standard and certification initiative that works with steel producers, consumers, and intermediaries towards building a sustainable steel industry by addressing pressing challenges including climate change, diversity, human rights, and more.

Tata Steel CEO & MD T. V. Narendran said: "The ResponsibleSteel Certification for our sites is a testament to Tata Steel's unwavering commitment to sustainability…I sincerely appreciate the ResponsibleSteel team, the auditors, the assurance panel, and the team at Tata Steel for their efforts in achieving this milestone. We are progressing well towards our target of certifying all our existing steelmaking sites in India by 2025."

ResponsibleSteel CEO Annie Heaton commented, “With the audit process for these two new site certifications, Tata Steel has demonstrated its commitment to openly progress its social and environmental responsibilities.

"During the audits, both sites’ GHG emissions reduction strategies and water stewardship programmes were highlighted for their robustness. The ResponsibleSteel Standard goes further, beyond managing a site’s environmental impacts, and aims to support sites to ensure the wellbeing of the site’s workers and local communities.”

Tata Steel was the first member of ResponsibleSteel from India and is undergoing assessment under the ResponsibleSteel framework for its various sites.

The ResponsibleSteel certification process involves a detailed review of key policies and the working for the site by an independent external assessor.
