ITC's social initiative wins international recognition

Feb 10 2020

ITC’s Paperboard Division in Coimbatore has won the Alliance for Water Stewardship Platinum-level certification for its social activities at the Upper Bhavani basin.

A press release from the company said the "water stewardship " approach of the company involves interventions in the factory premises and at the catchment level. Within the factory, continuous efforts are on to minimise fresh water consumption and to recycle and reuse the effluent.


At the catchment level, ITC and World Wide Fund for Nature, WWF-India are working towards a watershed management strategy using a multi-stakeholder approach. Since the last four years, households in 149 villages have benefited, according to the release. The paperboard factory in Coimbatore produces 1,03,000 tonnes of recycled boards every year.
