It is easy to get things done and hard to let each other down when everyone is truthful and transparent. At Birla Carbon, we focus on knowledge as our strength to deliver solutions around the world. As we look to go Beyond Durable, we uphold the highest ethical standards across all our business activities, and we expect our stakeholders to do the same.

Challenge Tested

Our Challenge Tested Purpose Principle highlights our commitment to seeing every obstacle as an opportunity for growth. We view a growing customer focus on sustainability and transparency as a chance to develop our governance structure and ethical standards to ensure we are protecting the environment, human rights and the interests of our customers.

At Birla Carbon, Enterprise Risk Management is a fundamental element of sustainable operational excellence. By identifying risks as soon as possible and accurately assessing the potential impacts to the business, we can deploy strategies focused on avoiding or minimizing the risk, rather than having to react to a crisis. By doing so, we’re making sure we always provide our customers with an uninterrupted supply of carbon black.”

We have modeled our governance on Aditya Birla Group’s Responsible Stewardship Framework, through which we are aligned with the UN Global Compact.

  • Building ethical operations

    To deliver the service we aspire to, we must strive for the highest ethical standards with regards to human rights, fair business and labor. We expect our employees and our extended network of suppliers to adhere to these standards as well.
