As environmental degradation and climate change emerge as pressing concerns, the need to address our environmental footprint has never been more important. The imminent danger posed by these challenges calls for a united and resolute response from businesses, governments, and civil societies.
As a prominent global provider of speciality chemicals and performance products, we are proactively striving towards achieving carbon and water neutrality in our operations. To this end, we are committed to tracking and analysing every aspect of our business activity, from our use of technology to operations to the solutions we offer to our customers. Our focus towards net zero operations is based on a triple bottom line framework.
We ensure that our innovative product solutions serve as effective tools in addressing the sustainability challenges faced by our customers and communities at large. We are steadfastly committed to lowering our emissions of greenhouse gases. Our resolute goal is to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, aligning with India's visionary perspective on this critical issue.
Proactively, we undertake measures for water and energy conservation, implementing targeted interventions to reduce our environmental footprint. Our focus extends to efficient operations, optimised energy management, water conservation, effective waste management and implementing green technologies.
Our strategic focus is directed towards reducing our energy intensity, particularly Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. More than 90% of our power requirement is met by in-house generated clean and green power. We also conserve energy through Waste Heat Recovery System, Water Conservation and Process Reengineering.
These efforts not only make us a leader in our sector but also provide the groundwork for our larger aim of neutralising Scope 3 emissions, a vital step towards attaining a 'Net Zero' status.
By investing in research and development, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible and driving technological advancements that benefit not only our Company but also the entire industry. Our commitment to excellence and continuous improvement sets us apart from competitors and positions us as a key player in shaping the future of our sector.
We take great satisfaction in the fact that the by-products from other core industries are used throughout our whole value chain. This inherent characteristic of our business ensures that we have minimal direct influence on the depletion of precious natural resources. Moreover, we are committed to developing a circular economy model. This model is designed to harness opportunities for integrating recycled materials from external sources, contributing to both sustainability and resource efficiency. Our diligent R&D team strives to establish a practical circular economy model, reflecting our commitment to sustainable practices.
