JSW Group, India’s leading conglomerates entered the Cement market in 2009 with a vision of a sustainable future for the country through the production of eco-friendly cement. Our commitment to this vision is our core business value.
JSW Group leads by example in innovation and sustainability across core sectors like Steel, Cement, Energy and Infrastructure.
Our mission is to reduce our carbon footprint to bring about a significant balance in the environment. By maximising our resources and by-products, we consistently deliver the best quality Green Cement.
We focus on the “How” aspect of business, rather than the “Why”. JSW Cement is cognizant of the responsibility towards the planet and ecology. We aim to give back to society above and beyond managing expectations and profitability of our stakeholders.
At JSW Cement we use Slag, the by-product obtained from steel industries, to produce cement. Slag is extremely effective in reducing permeability and helps increase the durability of concrete. Slag Cement can replace up to 50% of Ordinary Portland Cement in most common concrete mixtures, and up to 80% in massive concrete elements and other specialised structures.
Slag as a raw material is proven to be environment-friendly owing to the following factors:
JSW Cement takes pride in being India’s first-ever cement manufacturer to receive the coveted GreenPro Certification for Portland Slag Cement (PSC) from the Confederation of Indian Industry – Indian Green Building Council (CII-IGBC).
We are GreenPro Certified for two products, Portland Slag Cement (PSC) and Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS)
We have received certificates from GreenPro for the following initiatives:
JSW Cement has partnered with M/s Thinkstep Sustainability Solutions Pvt Ltd (now M/s Sphera) for carrying out EPD in accordance with ISO 14025 and EN 15804, for our green products. During this engagement, a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) was carried out using their proprietary software (GaBI). The outcomes from LCA are about GHG emission, energy consumption, other emissions, wastes generation, etc and these results were sent to a third-party for complete verification. Post confirmation from the third-party, the final EPD has been registered and published for JSW Cement PSC and JSW Cement GGBS, which validates our claim of low carbon emission.
As a result of the lower clinker factor due to substitution with blast furnace slag, the Global Warming Potential of our PSC product was found to be 325.14 kg CO2/tonne of PSC – one of the lowest in the cement industry.
It is our primary focus to improve efficiency to better control all business processes. We have implemented third party certified management systems compliant with the international standards in our operations such as:
