ITC's achievements across all three dimensions of the "Triple Bottom Line" - economic, social and environmental is well known and recognized globally. Being a pioneer in environmentally sustainable operations (e.g. Carbon and Water positive, solid waste recycling positive), we need to meet demanding standards of responsible waste management in all aspects of our operations.
With pervasive use of electrical and electronic equipments in our daily operations, disposal of obsolete equipments is increasingly posing a threat to our environment. There is therefore a need to handle such disposals - referred to as E-Waste - in a responsible manner in line with emerging global best practices and standards.
