JK Tyre Achieves Historic ISCC Plus Certification for Chennai Plant

Chennai, June 17, 2024: JK Tyre & Industries has become the first Indian tyre manufacturer to be awarded the prestigious International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus for its Chennai plant. This milestone underscores JK Tyre’s dedication to sustainability and its proactive approach towards environmentally conscious manufacturing.

The ISCC Plus certification process is stringent, requiring adherence to numerous criteria such as raw material traceability, compliance with environmental regulations, ecosystem preservation, labor and human rights, and sustainable economic development. The comprehensive final audit for this certification was conducted by the Indian counterpart of the certification body, headquartered in Kolkata.

Dr. Raghupati Singhania, Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) of JK Tyre, expressed his pride in the achievement, stating, “Green manufacturing embodies our commitment to sustainable development. By reducing our carbon footprint and utilizing resources judiciously, we have consistently set industry standards over the years. This recognition is a significant milestone for JK Tyre and motivates us to continue our dedication to sustainable practices.”

JK Tyre has set ambitious goals to become a carbon-neutral brand by 2050 and reduce its carbon intensity by 50% by 2030. The company’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions has been validated by the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).

The Chennai plant has a notable history of sustainability achievements. It was certified as a zero-liquid discharge facility in 2021 and earned the title of “National Energy Leader” at the 21st National Award for Excellence in Energy Management in 2020. In 2017, the plant was recognized by the International Research Institute for Manufacturing (IRIM) for its sustainability and green manufacturing techniques. Additionally, it has received the “Excellent Energy Efficient Unit” award from the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) for six consecutive years since 2015.

ISCC Plus is a voluntary certification scheme for bio-based and circular (recycled) raw materials. The certification is granted following a rigorous verification process, ensuring compliance with ISCC requirements, including the traceability of certified materials throughout the entire supply chain, from origin to finished product.
