Lalit Beriwala, Director of Shyam Steel Industries, expressed, “The acquisition of the esteemed GreenPro Certification signifies a monumental feat for Shyam Steel. It underscores our commitment to manufacturing environmentally responsible steel products, reinforcing our dedication to surpassing stringent environmental standards while delivering top-notch products.” The steel industry, facing escalating pressure to adopt eco-friendly practices, recognizes this through certifications like the GreenPro Certification recently bestowed upon Shyam Steel by the CII-Green Products and Services Council. Mr. Beriwala emphasized further, stating, “The trajectory toward green steel isn’t a matter of if, but when. Governments worldwide are intensely focused on lowering carbon emissions, leading to the emergence of carbon markets and frameworks.”
This certification underscores the company’s commitment to environmentally sustainable manufacturing practices. Fe 550D and Fe 500D represent significant strides towards a sustainable future. In adhering to the high environmental benchmarks set by the CII-Green Products and Services Council, these products play a vital role in building a greener, more sustainable world while ensuring the highest quality for customers.
