Dalmia cement goes fully on renewable power
Cement giant Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Ltd is the first cement company to join RE100, a global collaborative initiative of the world’s most influential companies committed to 100 per cent renewable power, it was announced.
After adding 8 MW solar PV capacity for its captive use, Dalmia Cement has set an ambitious interim target to increase four-fold its percentage of renewable energy consumption by 2030 compared to 2015, a company’s statement said.
“Being one of the greenest cement companies in the world, we are committed to decarbonising our operations in a way that makes business sense,” Dalmia Cement Group Chief Executive Officer Mahendra Singhi said.
“We are scaling up our ambition to double our energy productivity and make a long-term transition to 100 percent renewable power, achieving a four-fold increase in the percentage of renewable energy in our electricity consumption by 2030,” he said.
