JK Tyre & Industries has been awarded the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification Plus (ISCC) for its Chennai factory, which has been recognized as a zero-liquid discharge facility and an “Excellent Energy Efficient Unit” for six years.

JK Tyre & Industries, a prominent Indian tyre maker, has been recognised as the country’s first to earn the renowned International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus for its Chennai factory. This certification demonstrates the company’s commitment to integrating sustainability into its manufacturing processes and creating an ecologically responsible future.

The comprehensive final audit for this certification was conducted by the Indian counterpart of the certification body based in Kolkata.

Dr. Raghupati Singhania, Chairman and Managing Director (CMD), JK Tyre, said, “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.”
