Dalmia Cement

One of the leading Indian cement manufacturers, Dalmia Cement has been awarded a green accreditation from the Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA) Council. Jointly set up by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India to combat climate change, GRIHA is the national rating system for green buildings in the country. The green accreditation is expected to strengthen Dalmia Cement’s role in making the industry carbon negative.

A subsidiary of Dalmia Bharat Limited, the cement company is not only the fourth largest in the country but also a leading pioneer in green cement manufacturing. Dalmia Cement received green enlistment for its blended cement in the GRIHA Green Catalogue under three categories GRIHA V.3 criterion: 15, GRIHA V.2015 criterion: 19, GRIHA V.2019 criterion19 and 21 and SVAGRIHA criterion: 11. Dalmia Cement’s blended cement products such as Composite Cement, Portland Pozzolana Cement and Portland Slag Cement had been evaluated by the GRIHA Council and listed as a green product in the GRIHA Green Catalogue under the Sustainable Building Materials. Alongside Dalmia Cement’s brands including Dalmia DSP Cement, Dalmia Cement, Dalmia Infra Pro, Konark Cement, Dalmia Infragreen and Dalmia Insta Pro have been also covered under this enlistment.“It is a matter of immense pride to become India’s first-ever cement company to receive this green accreditation from GRIHA.
