ITC Paperboards and Specialty Papers Division - Sustainability


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 8,76,000 acres. 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 16 years in a row, Water Positive for 19 consecutive years and Solid Waste recycling positive for the last 14 years. (as of 31st March 2021)
