Waste Recycling

ITC has made significant progress in reducing specific waste generation through constant monitoring and improvement of efficiencies in material utilisation and also in achieving almost total recycling of waste generated in operations. In this way, ITC has prevented waste reaching landfills and associated problems such as soil and groundwater contamination and GHG emissions, all of which can impact public health. ITC has achieved over 99% waste recycling of the total waste generated by its operations. During 2016-17, this Business also recycled around 1,15,000 tonnes of externally sourced post-consumer waste paper, thereby creating yet another positive environmental footprint.
