Hitachi ABB Power Grids in India aims to achieve carbon-neutrality by 2030
Hitachi ABB Power Grids in India has announced an all-inclusive programme to accomplish carbon-neutrality targets by 2030 in its operations, reiterating its commitment to a sustainable energy future.
Contributing to the drive to build back better, the innovative technology leader is adopting a three-dimensional approach to decarbonization.
The programme is designed to ease the carbon footprint of its own operations and in the products that it delivers.
The goal of the programme is allied with India's Mission Innovation and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal 7 to increase access to affordable and clean energy.
The company anticipates accomplishing its carbon-neutral target of 100 percent fossil-free electricity by the close of FY22. It is also electrifying its operations to deliver further efficiencies over the coming years.
Additional 2030 targets include a 50 percent reduction in CO2 emissions along with the value chain and the introduction of greenhouse gas-free technology solutions.
Two more targets relate to a 50 percent reduction in waste generation and cutting freshwater usage by 25 percent, progressively through the next 10 years.
"We see ourselves as a key enabler of a sustainable energy future and are playing our part in the fight against global warming," said N Venu, Managing Director, and CEO of Hitachi ABB Power Grids in India.
"Electricity will be the backbone of the entire energy system and we are working on electrified, reliable, and decarbonized operations and products," he said in a declaration.
