Jindal Stainless organises plastic waste collection drive on World Environment Day

June 1, 2022, New Delhi/Gurgaon: Jindal Stainless organised a plastic waste collection drive today across its corporate offices to sensitize employees of the detrimental impact of plastic on earth, and to re-emphasize Company’s focus on green and sustainable manufacturing. The Company collaborated with ‘Green Dream Foundation’, a Delhi-based NGO and its CSR implementation partner, and invited its people to turn in their plastic waste in exchange for eco-friendly day-to-day products made of stainless steel.

Taking note of this initiative, Managing Director, Jindal Stainless, Mr Abhyuday Jindal said, “We take pride in being the makers of the most sustainable and eco-friendly metal. Much has been said about curbing plastic waste in the past and we are committed to uprooting plastic usage on every level from our manufacturing process. Efforts like this plastic waste collection drive are a reminder of our responsibility towards the environment. I congratulate my people for turning in a substantial volume of plastic today and making the switch to stainless. We are dedicatedly making efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, switch to renewable energy, and further advance our waste management processes.” 

The Company also ran the #SwitchToStainless online campaign on its social media handles showcasing several initiatives taken up by the Company to reduce the overall carbon footprint over the last few years. The campaign aimed at engaging with the millennial and younger audience, while educating them about the problems pertaining to plastic waste.

During FY22, Jindal Stainless successfully reduced its carbon emissions by approximately 3,100 metric tonnes by switching to renewable energy, deploying efficient power and fuel saving, waste oil treatment, and dedicated tree plantation drives. Over the last decade, both the manufacturing units together have planted around 1 million trees and shrubs. Presently, the Company is in the process of introducing newer green initiatives, and is working towards achieving its ESG goals.
