Sharing his thoughts on the achievement, Dr. Santrupt Misra, Group Director, Birla Carbon; Director, Chemicals & Director, Group H.R., Aditya Birla Group, said, “With an increase in interest and demand from customers for sustainable products, this first ISCC PLUS certification for Birla Carbon, gives us an opportunity to support our customers better and more particularly through our Continua™ product line.” He further added, “Aditya Birla Group’s focus on sustainability and circularity and its work toward a net zero carbon emissions world is made real through Birla Carbon’s dedication in providing advanced products to the industry, further fulfilling our commitment to sustainability and circularity.”

Commenting on this recognition, John Loudermilk, Chief Executive Officer, Birla Carbon, said, “This ISCC PLUS certification for our plant in Italy, supports the principles of environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable production, beginning with our Continua™ Sustainable Carbonaceous Material. It is our intention to adopt this important certification at all our manufacturing locations in the near future.” He further added, “Sustainability has always been core to who we are as a leader in our industry. Our sustainability efforts already led us to achieve the ‘Platinum’ rating by EcoVadis for sustainable business practices, and now, with the ISCC PLUS certification, we are well positioned to supply recognized sustainable materials to our customers globally.”
