ACC records consolidated net profit of Rs 1,430 cr in FY21

ACC Cement is now a part of the LafarageHolcim Group. In FY21, ACC recorded net sales of Rs 13,487 crore and a consolidated net profit of Rs 1,430 crore.

The company commissioned a new grinding unit at Sindri, Jharkhand, which will add 1.4 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of cement capacity to its existing three mtpa unit.

Its sustainability strategy is led by the Sustainable Development Plan 2030, aligned with the sustainability vision of the parent company. The initiatives under this plan include investments in improving the energy efficiency of production facilities, using alternative raw materials and fuels, and replacing carbon dioxide intensive clinker used in cement manufacturing with resources derived from fly ash and slag.

It has resulted in a 3.7% reduction in specific carbon dioxide emissions, a 22% drop in nitrous oxide emissions and a 27% reduction in dust emissions in the financial year.

In FY21, ACC consumed 3.63 million cubic m of water in cement operations, down by 9% from the consumption in the previous year. In FY21, of the total cement produced, about 90% was blended cement. In 2021, ACC co-processed 0.57 metric tonnes of waste, of which 99,517 tonnes was a plastic waste.

The company offered eight products that have been certified by the Confederation of Indian Industry to be eco-labelled. Its R&D initiatives in green products include the development of carbon-neutral concrete and ultra-high performance concrete.

The company's green energy consumption was 85.26 units in FY21, compared to the previous year with 82.39 units. It reported a thermal substitution rate of 6.93% in FY21, up from 1.48% in FY20. Moreover, ACC’s waste heat recovery capacity will rise from 7.5 MW to 22.5 MW.

ACC has a dealer footprint of 12,000 and added 2,050 last year. The company has an integrated supply chain into its operational efficiency and sustainability strategy.
