Birla Century, a unit of Century Textiles & Industries Ltd., has become the first manufacturing plant in India to bag LEED & MIG certifications for sustainable textile production. Keeping in view clean manufacturing and sustainable drive among world leaders of textile industry, Birla Century has always been committed towards safe & sustainable manufacturing.

This is the first manufacturing project in India to achieve LEED v4 certification (gold) and the second manufacturing project to achieve LEED EBOM certification worldwide from United States Green Building Council. LEED v4 is the most rigorous global sustainability certification and is significantly harder than the previous ones LEED v3.

The Made in Green (MIG) tag (a web-based QR code system) by Hohenstein, Germany indicates that labelled textiles are not only tested for harmful substances but also manufactured in environmentally friendly, safe and socially responsible workplaces. The MIG tag offers visibility to every component of the production system and can be seen by brands/retailers/customers across the globe. Labelled products can be easily traced and tracked, and provides reliable Information to consumers who want to make more sustainable personal purchase decisions.

The advantages of the certifications are protection of environment, socially responsible and safe workplace, efficient & prosperous textile value chain, total transparency, benchmarking of products, sustainable use of materials and resources and eco-friendly production.

"The Oeko-Tex endorsement is a testament to our commitment to sustainable production practices. It allows us to highlight our sustainability credentials to our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders in a credible manner. For our customers in particular, this establishes a firm basis for placing more trust in us as a responsible textile producer," president RK Dalmia said.

"Birla Century is committed to develop innovative products and processes that are safe for the consumer as well as the environment through product benchmarking, sustainable use of materials and resources, and eco-friendly manufacturing practices. We have also decided to identify parts of our products with the MIG tag," Dalmia added. “The STeP certification has established a firm basis for placing more trust in the company as a responsible textile producer, The green certifications will provide further impetus to the company’s sustainable journey and help it stand out from the competition” Dalmia concluded.
