State governments must step up their carbon credits, decarbonize the power sector, and enforce usage of eco-friendly building materials.
Advait Infratech - Shalin Sheth, Founder & Managing Director
With rapid urbanization, the problem of global warming has attracted worldwide attention, especially towards the construction industry, which witnesses a large amount of energy consumption, along with carbon and greenhouse emissions. According to a report published by the United Nations Environment Programme, CO2 emissions from the construction industry reached the highest level in 2019 - forcing the industry to take some mandatory actions to achieve carbon neutrality.
Long-term climate strategies
The state governments must step up their commitments to NDCs with longer-term climate strategies such as carbon credits that reduce energy demand in the built environment, decarbonize the power sector, and identify materials that reduce a building’s lifecycle carbon emissions in order to spur the uptake of net-zero emission buildings.
The inclusion of Green Recovery Packages is proving to be an accelerator that will get us moving rapidly in the right direction. It is not only helping to move the real estate and construction sectors onto a low-carbon pathway but is also slowing climate change and delivering strong economic recovery benefits; this should therefore be a clear priority for all governments.
Initiatives to reduce carbon emission
Advait Infratech Limited is actively contributing to a sustainable future through its commitment to green and clean services. As a Solar EPC and Green Hydrogen infrastructure provider, Advait is at the forefront of promoting a shift toward renewable energy sources. By venturing into Solar and Green Hydrogen, the company is facilitating the transition to a low-carbon economy and reducing dependence on fossil fuels. Green hydrogen, produced through the electrolysis of water using renewable energy, is a clean and sustainable alternative to conventional energy sources.
To spearhead the transition towards a sustainable future by pioneering green energy solutions, Advait has recently expanded into clean energy with Greenergy - a subsidiary of AIL that develops green hydrogen integrators and undertakes EPC and Carbon Consultancy projects.
Advait Infratech is involved in a variety of activities in the power, telecom and renewable energy sectors. In addition to Green Hydrogen, we are also a leader in Solar Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) solutions. We design and implement solar power projects on a mid-scale, and by promoting solar energy, we are helping to decrease reliance on fossil fuels and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
