At the heart of ITC’s innovative strategies lies the creation of unique business models that synergise longterm shareholder value growth with that of enhancing societal capital.
Our Social & Farm Forestry initiative, driven by an extensive research based clonal propagation programme, has greened over 1,42,000 hectares and created cumulative employment of 64 million person-days. These plantations provide a reliable source of wood pulp for the long-term competitiveness and sustainability of our Paper business.
Sustainable forestry practices have secured for ITC the membership of the Global Forest & Trade Network of the WWF in a first-of-its-kind achievement in India.
ITC is the only company of comparable size in the world to be Carbon positive for 8 years in a row, Water Positive for 11 consecutive years and Solid Waste recycling positive for the last 6 years. (as of 31st March 2013)
