Ambuja Cement
Ambuja Cement Limited has embedded sustainability in its organisational culture. It fosters responsible business growth through its sustainable development initiatives that cover a wide spectrum – from harnessing clean technology to the utilisation of industrial wastes in cement production, energy conservation through renewable energy resources and emissions reduction by creating institutionalised mechanisms monitoring environmental risks.

Ambuja Cement has sharpened its focus on water conservation at its plants' surrounding areas and the customer end during construction. In 2020, it facilitated the installation of Rooftop Rain Water Harvesting systems at 268 construction sites, Modular Curing at 2391 construction sites and Concrete Mix Proportion services at 14271 construction sites. These initiatives have helped it save 70 million litres of water, a robust step towards sustainable water consumption.

Neeraj Akhoury, MD & CEO, Ambuja Cements said, "As part of the global organisation, Holcim, Ambuja Cement's ambition is to be a part of the solution to the sustainability challenges faced today. I am pleased with the progress that we have made through our efforts, and we will continue to put into action the bolder plans for emission reduction, resource optimisation and water conservation to build a sustainable future of India."

In 2020, Ambuja Cement developed and revived 83 water harvesting and recharging structures and 14 dams for the community, amounting to a storage capacity of 600 million litres, taking the total count to 14060 water harvesting and recharge structures, 458 check dams and 59240 million litres, respectively. It has worked towards extending its environmental stewardship much beyond its business horizon, as in the same year, Ambuja reduced its carbon footprint to 531 kg CO2/ton of cement and reused 8.2 million tons of waste in cement production. It also reduced the freshwater withdrawal up to 77 litres/ton of cementitious material and added around 3 lakh new beneficiaries under its community outreach programmes. Green energy is another focus area for Ambuja as it has invested ₹525 crores towards Waste Heat Recovery Systems (WHRS), which reduces its conventional fuel consumption.
