The World Bank predicts that annual waste generation will increase by 73% to 3.88 billion tonnes by 2050. STL's Zero Waste to Landfill initiatives, a part of the company's larger goal to be Net-Zero by 2030 aim to repurpose ~99% of the industrial byproducts back into the production cycle. Since 2018, STL has diverted 1,75,000+ Metric Tonnes (MT) of waste away from landfills, including 42,000+ MT in FY22. STL's ZWL approach includes various industry-first initiatives like co-processing of optical fibre cables and LSZH (Low-Smoke-Zero-Halogen) wastes, purification of chemical by-products for industrial usages and precision water management, among other initiatives. STL has also moved to sustainable packaging called S.U.R.E (Sustainable, User-Friendly, Reliable, and Efficient) to reduce overall carbon emissions in the fibre lifecycle. Commenting on this achievement, Akanksha Sharma, Global Head ESG, STL, said, "As a global optical technology leader, with customers in over 100 countries, effective and efficient waste management is our top priority.
