Ambuja Cement and ACC establish leadership in water positivity

Over the past two decades, Adani Cement's cement and building materials companies, Ambuja Cements and ACC, have proactively undertaken a slew of award-winning water conservation initiatives to address India's water scarcity. The companies actively avoided the use of freshwater by optimising their processes and promoting water conservation, harvesting, and recycling within their operations, as well as augmenting water harvesting structures in communities.

Ambuja Cements, in collaboration with the ATE Chandra Foundation, revitalised traditional water bodies in Rajasthan's Pali District and Maharashtra's Vidharbha region last year, just in time for the annual monsoon season. Desilting community ponds in 50 villages generate 166 million litre of additional water storage capacity.

ACC has helped the community in village Biryahi, part of the Jamthal Gram Panchayat in Gagal, Himachal Pradesh, by laying a drinking water pipeline and supplying 120 litres per person per day - far exceeding the rural standard of 55 litres per person per day under the Jal Jeevan Mission. ACC will lay 1,000 m of pipe in October 2022 to supply water to approximately 150 people.

Ambuja Cement and ACC are both water-positive companies that give back to the community. ACC is two times water positive and plans to increase by five times by 2030. Ambuja Cement, on the other hand, has already set a precedent by becoming the only cement company to achieve 8 times water positivity.
