As Aditya Birla Group endeavors to become the leading Indian conglomerate for sustainable business practices across its global operations, we are focused towards achieving our sustainability targets by 2025.
Eliminate any fatalities and unsafe conditions at workplace and focus on behavioral based safety, until we reach our goal of ‘Zero Harm’
35% reduction in carbon intensity, with the help of solar power and various energy saving projects, by 2025
40% reduction in water use intensity by 2025, and making all our businesses water active
Zero liquid discharge to be implemented at all our units in water-stressed areas, by 2025
The Sustainability journey at the Aditya Birla Group started in 2013, with the Sustainability Vision Statement by our Chairman.
The top leadership acts as enablers to establish the Sustainability Framework, and this in turn, works as a guide to strengthen the systems and processes out in place, across all businesses.
Create a framework to move us towards international standards and mitigate our impact on ‘Externalities’.
Gain knowledge to understand how fast externalities will change and cause disruptions.
Modify our strategic business plan to include adaptation to changes in external factors and build resilience in our value chain.
