First in the world, Welspun Flooring receives Zero Waste certification from SCS Global Services | SR Material News

Welspun Flooring, a fully-integrated and independent flooring vertical of Welspun Group, has become the first company in the world to be awarded a certification under the new Zero Waste Standard implemented by SCS Global Services – a global leader in third-party environmental and sustainability certifcation services. The company’s manufacturing facility in Telangana has achieved 98 per cent diversion of waste from landfills enabled by a sustainability-focused waste management strategy consisting of recycling, waste reclamation, co-processing (including waste-to-energy), composting and storage.

SCS Global Services is a global leader in third-party environmental and sustainability verification, certification, auditing, testing and standards development. An independent audit involving an on-site inspection by SCS revealed the extent to which Welspun Flooring’s waste streams are prevented, reused or diverted from the landfill. Based on the findings of the audit, Welspun Flooring was given a certification, underscoring the company’s efforts to become better stewards of facility waste management in line with Welspun Group’s ESG goals. 

Committed to balancing the needs of today with those of tomorrow, Welspun Flooring is steadily advancing towards sustainable manufacturing by adopting a zero-impact, circular approach to all its operations. These ranges from sourcing of raw materials and manufacturing to waste recycling and management. The organisation tracks the progress of its waste minimisation and diversion accomplishments through internal record-keeping as it moves towards meeting all of its sustainable waste commitments.

Speaking on the development, Mukesh Savlani, CEO-International Business, Welspun Flooring commented, We are proud to become the first company in the world to achieve certification under SCS’ new Zero Waste Program. Earning such a prestigious certification despite being a relatively young player in the market stands as a testament to our commitment to building a sustainable future.” 

Inna Kitaychik, SCS Operations Manager, Zero Waste Certification added, This new certification showcases Welspun Flooring’s commitment to prioritising the environment and reinforces its position among the world’s leading environment-conscious organisations.”
