Tata Steel today put India on the global decarbonization and sustainability map with its three production facilities in Jamshedpur receiving the coveted ResponsibleSteel Certification. The Company’s Steel Works, Tubes Division and Cold Rolling Mill (Bara) in Jamshedpur have joined an exclusive group of steel production sites worldwide to receive the ResponsibleSteel Certification, which also includes some of the world’s other renowned steel producers.

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

Q V. Narendran, CEO & MD, Tata Steelit says: “This is a historic moment for Tata Steel and an important step in our sustainability journey. Globally, the steel industry is at a critical juncture and the larger impacts of how we produce and consume steel need to be addressed urgently. For Tata Steel this has always been a very important part of our journey since we first produced steel at Jamshedpur in 1912. We are honored to receive the ResponsibleSteel Certification for our three facilities and will work to achieve this recognition for all of our production sites. I thank the ResponsibleSteel team, the auditors, the assurance panel and the team at Tata Steel for their efforts in making this happen.”

Annie Heaton, CEO, Responsible Steel, it says: “We warmly congratulate Tata Steel on this great achievement. Tata has demonstrated the vision, commitment and investment and has worked very hard to achieve ResponsibleSteel certification for the Jamshedpur site, the first Tata Steel site to be certified and the first ResponsibleSteel certification in India. It is not enough to just focus on reducing carbon emissions. Certified sites must also ensure that they are fully aligned with the other sustainability objectives of the Standard, for example ensuring good water management, creating healthy and safe workplaces, protecting labor rights, and engaging with local communities and other stakeholders. This is a significant achievement for Tata Steel, and everyone involved.”

Tata Steel has been a member of ResponsibleSteel since October 2020.

As a century-old Company, Tata Steel believes in the need for strong governance policies and frameworks to ensure growth and responsibility to all stakeholders go hand in hand. The company has announced its key sustainability goals including Net Zero Carbon by 2045, Net Zero Water consumption by 2030, Improved Ambient Air Quality and No Net loss in Biodiversity by 2030.
