Green laurels for Tata plant

Jamshedpur, June 29: When it comes to caring for the greens, there is no stopping the Tatas.

At least, the string of awards says so.

The Jamshedpur plant of Tata Motors Limited has added another feather in its cap by bagging the Golden Peacock Environment Management Award, 2011.

The automobile major, which also manufactures state-of-the-art world trucks, was selected the winner by a jury headed by the former Chief Justice of India and member of UN Human Rights Commission, Justice P.N. Bhagwati.

The prestigious award was presented by Union home minister P. Chidambaram to the company’s Jamshedpur plant head P.K. Chobe during a special awards night organised on the occasion of the 13th World Congress on Environment Management in New Delhi on June 26.

The function was attended by a distinguished gathering of business leaders, jurists, academics, environmentalists, economists, legislators and policy makers. Two other senior officials of the company — general manager (technical) S.K. Dhawan and divisional manager (environment) Prashant Krishnan — were also present.

Golden Peacock Awards, named after the national bird, was instituted in 1991. The award is now recognised worldwide as the hallmark of corporate excellence because of its integrity, transparency and thorough evaluation process.

This is not the first time that the company has earned laurels for its green initiatives. Earlier on the occasion of Earth Day, Tata Motors won the coveted Srishthi Good Green Governance Award presented by Union minister Salman Khursheed. The felicitation ceremony was hosted in Delhi on April 22.

A spokesperson of Tata Motors, Capt P.J. Singh, expressed happiness over receiving the award. “The Golden Peacock Awards, presented by the Institute of Directors, New Delhi, are given away every year for various categories. We bagged it for environment management. The award will encourage us to do better in future projects,” he said.
