Dalmia Bharat (DBL) is accelerating its commitment toward becoming carbon negative by 2040 through its transformative and collaborative strategy roadmap. The company revealed its larger purpose that emphasised innovation, growth and sustainability through shared synergies with multiple organisations, social entities and governing bodies. These include Asian Development Bank as well as 50 local governments across the nation. The company has already begun taking steps to replace fossil fuels through its nationwide circular economy approach such as partnering with local governments to help in non-recyclable waste disposal. For this, DBL commissioned two chlorine dust bypass systems in its cement manufacturing units, a first-of-its-kind project in India. Additionally, the cement major set up solar and waste heat recovery power generation for clean energy transition. The company is also working on access to clean water by reducing its water footprint. This has made it 13 times water-positive. By partnering with Asian Development Bank for a feasibility assessment of Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU), the company is using CO2 emissions from cement plants in collaborative ways with fertiliser, soda ash and the construction sector. Commenting on the company’s strategic roadmap for net-zero emissions, Dr Arvind Bodhankar, Executive Director, ESG & CRO, Dalmia Bharat, has said, “As a cement producer, we are attached to people’s happiness by glueing thousands of dreams into reality. We, therefore, strive to give our customers only the best building materials with the lowest environmental impact. In addition, we also intend to drive a net-zero emissions reality with a strategy that’s aligned with our business philosophy, Clean and Green is Profitable and Sustainable.”
