JK Lakshmi Cement, a leading Indian cement manufacturer, has committed to sourcing 100% of its electricity needs from renewable sources through joining the RE100 initiative.
The company aims to meet this target by 2040, which will make it the fourth cement firm globally to achieve this goal.
Additionally, JK Lakshmi Cement has also joined the EP100 initiative and pledged to double its energy productivity by 2040. As part of this commitment, the company has deployed LNG trucks for transporting raw materials and signed an agreement with Amplus Solar to set up a 56 MWp solar power plant for its Durg facility.
These efforts will significantly reduce the company’s carbon footprint and promote sustainability.
Indian businesses are leading on climate, said Mr. Atul Mudaliar, Head of Business Action, India, Climate Group, and more companies need to recognize the business case in taking bold and unprecedented action toward a climate-positive future.
