SGS India, worldâ€™s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company post the successful completion of the assessment of Birla Celluloseâ€™s Vilayut Unit in Gujarat, the FSC C-o-C certification was awarded recently. Vilayat is Birla Celluloseâ€™s fourth fibre unit to get this certification.
Birla Celluloseâ€™s other fibre units which have FSC C-o-C certification are Kharach Unit in Gujarat, PT Indo Bharat Rayon in Indonesia and Birla Jingwei Fibre Company in China. All the pulp units of Birla Cellulose are certified for one of these key certifications i.e. SFI, FSC C-o-C and PEFC and now four of the fibre units are FSC C-o-C certified.
The managing director of Grasim Industries Ltd, Dilip Gaur, said that FSC certification is an important step and in line with their Wood Sourcing Policy to procure raw material from certified sources.
They are also one of the first cellulose fibre producers to complete a Canopy Style audit conducted by Rainforest Alliance which confirms Birla Cellulose fibre supply chains are low risk for sourcing from ancient and endangered forests or other controversial sources. FSC C-o-C is another milestone in their sustainability journey.
