Ambuja Cements plans net zero emissions target through SBTi

Ambuja Cements Limited has developed a Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) aligned with the carbon emissions reduction by 2030 to limit global warming below 2 degree celsius.

It has also signed the Business Ambition for 1.5°C pledge and joined the campaign of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The company aims to reduce Scope 1 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and Scope 2 GHG emissions by 21% per tonne of cementitious materials by 2030. Besides, Ambuja Cement targets to reduce Scope 1 GHG by 20% per tonne of cementitious material and Scope 2 GHG emissions by 43% per tonne of cementitious materials by 2030.

Neeraj Akhoury, CEO and MD of Ambuja Cements Limited and CEO India of Holcim, said that Ambuja Cement is dedicated to sustainable development and aims to induce sustainability in all operations and projects. The company has joined global companies to promote a low carbon economy for the industry. It has strengthened its climate change adaptability by joining the Race to Zero. The company will continue to implement initiatives to achieve the business goal.

It aims to reduce carbon intensity in cement operations from 531 kg in 2020 to 453 kg net carbon per tonne of cementitious material by 2030.

The company has taken various initiatives, including reducing the clinker factor, improving the thermal substitution rate, reducing thermal and electrical intensity, using waste heat recovery systems, increasing renewable energy capacity and use of new technologies to reduce emissions.

SBTi enables the company to develop a clear roadmap for decarbonisation to align with the goal of the Paris Agreement of the net-zero energy system. By the implementation of SBTi, Ambuja Cement has ranked itself as an industry leader focusing on a low carbon sustainable future.
