The challenge for cement companies is to balance the growing demand for cement with
its environmental implications by developing and championing sustainable solutions
for the industry. In India, UltraTech Cement is a pioneer in incorporating environmental
concerns into our decision making process.
As the largest cement producer in India, we continually strive to play a key role
in finding effective and responsible ways to preserve the environment - a Cement
Sustainability Initiative. We as a company are committed to improving our sustainable
footprint in the identified areas of waste management, energy reduction, water conservation,
biodiversity management, afforestation and emission reduction which are relevant
to the cement industry.
As part of our commitment, we compile our carbon footprint across the business every
year. Considering the growth in the cement business, we have identified safety as
one area where major improvement is required. We have been engaged with DuPont for
the last three years in improving our safety performance both in operating plants
and projects. We are able to realize a visible change in our safety performance
after this engagement.
