New Delhi, December 16, 2005: The cement industry, the country’s second largest excise duty payer (after tobacco industry) and potentially very polluting, has been awarded the Three Leaves Award by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE).

  • The second rating of the pulp and paper sector shows visible improvements in environmental performance of large companies.
  • CSE’s data shows that industry can work to provide jobs and a growth model -- it can provide employment to 0.55 million farming families just from tree plantation, and can make India a pulp-surplus country.
  • The credibility of the rating works as a reputational incentive to drive change in the sector.
