Tata Steel Limited publishes Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Steel Structural Hollow Sections (Tata Structura)

Eco-label certifications will further accelerate the Company’s efforts towards leadership in sustainability

Jamshedpur: Tata Steel Limited has published Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Steel Structural Hollow Sections sold under the brand name Tata Structura, as part of its commitment to be a benchmark in sustainability disclosures and to serve its customers with product specific sustainability information.

EPDs are Type III eco-labels that transparently declare the product’s environmental impact over its life cycle across various indicators.

It is a comprehensive, third-party reviewed report that acts as a verified document in communicating a product’s life cycle environmental impact for disclosure purposes.

EPD is widely used in green building and construction material industry as it accounts for scoring the required credit points in green building assessment system. It can also be used in prioritizing products based on green public procurement policies.

The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) study carried out for developing the EPD for steel products is done as per ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 standards. LCA allows companies to evaluate their product’s environmental performance over its entire life cycle.

It typically takes into account the full value chain, from material extraction to manufactured product, its usage stage, and end-of-life impacts. The EPD is published in the International EPD System and can be accessed through the link.

Sanjiv Paul, Vice President (Safety, Health and Sustainability), Tata Steel, said: “EPDs are an important validation tool, both for manufacturers to provide transparent data about environmental sustainability of its products and for the more conscientious customers to make informed purchasing decisions. We are confident that the number of such customers will increase rapidly in our markets and we are gearing up to serve them proactively.
