Sustainability powers JSW Steel’s business vision. We realise that only by creating a sustainable future can we pave the way for our goal of a self-reliant India. This belief has always stood us in good stead. With a conviction in our values, we have grown from a single steel plant in 1982 to the large operations that define us today. JSW Steel is a pioneer in the use of innovative technology that keeps us ahead of the competition. Not only do we offer the widest product portfolio in India, we also further leverage our capability to customise offerings to match customer expectations. Our strategy of always staying on the leading edge of technical advancement has led to partnerships with global sector leaders such as JFE Steel, Marubeni Itochu Steel, Praxair and Severfield Rowen Plc. This technological edge has helped our plants rank among the lowest-cost steel producers in the world and differentiated us from our competitors. The strong focus on innovation and R&D has led to JSW Steel being recognised worldwide as a purveyor of high-end, value-added steel. Nearly 40 percent of our products today are high value steels; we intend to take this figure up to 50 percent. Nearly one fifth of our products are exported and we are India’s largest exporter of steel with a presence in over 140 countries. Our strategic approach to growth has driven the Company’s forward and backward integration initiatives. Our steel plants in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra have a combined installed capacity of 18 million tonnes per annum (MTPA). With the objective of touching 40 million tonnes in the next decade, we are expanding capacities at our existing sites and setting up plants in new locations. At JSW, sustainability is the touchstone on which we have evolved our operational processes. Our systems for governance, manufacturing, supply chain management, human resource management, community engagement, mitigation of our carbon footprint and customer engagement, among others, are benchmarked against global best-in-class standards. Our deeply held beliefs in doing business the sustainable way have led to strong partnerships among the communities where we operate. The canopy of our CSR (corporate social responsibility) initiative covers micro-level engagements as well as macro development programs that leave a measurable positive impact in every location where we have a presence.
