Climate Action

Cement is a carbon-intensive industry. We have therefore integrated a low carbon strategy into our business roadmap to address SDG 13 (climate change goal) based on COP 21 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).


Our strategy is governed by energy and carbon policy which has been adopted by all our units. We have undertaken a voluntary strategy to reduce the impact of our operations on climate change. As a member of international and national organizations such as GCCA, FICCI, CII and CMA, we are committed to publishing our emission data and to set environmental performance targets. UltraTech has committed to Science Based Targets and has aligned its business plans to the requirements of Paris Agreement.

SBTi has validated our CO2 emissions target. We have committed to reduce scope 1 CO2 emissions 27% per ton of cementitious material by FY2032, from a FY2017 base year. UltraTech has also committed to reduce scope 2 CO2 emissions 69% per ton of cementitious material within the same time frame.

UltraTech has recently adopted the TCFD framework and is a supporter to the TCFD recommendations issued by Financial Stability Board (FSB). We have also championed deployment of internal carbon pricing (ICP) in our business processes. We find ICP as an excellent tool for accelerating decarbonization across the value chain and to enable this transition within the company.

We contribute to the climate actions by integrating low carbon strategy and scaling up investments in the development of innovative products and services, improving energy efficiency, increasing the share of renewable energy and by switching from fossil fuels to alternative materials.

Key Achievements

  • Adopted Internal Carbon Price (ICP) of USD 10
  • Commitment to double energy productivity by becoming members to EP100
  • Net CO2 Scope 1 intensity has decreased to 557 kg/tonne of cementitious products in FY 23 (12% reduction from base year 2017) 
  • Focused R&D efforts to diversify our portfolio by including products which have lower GHG impact.
  • Launched low carbon products such as Portland Pozzolona Cement (PPC) Super and Composite Cement which have a lower clinker factor compared to Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC)
  • Increased the share of renewable energy with effective capacity of 345 MW renewable power source. There was a 28.25% increase in renewable energy YoY in FY23, with capacity additions of 76 MW during the year. We have waste heat recovery power projects of 210 MW installed capacity and have plans in place to aggressively scale the capacity. FY23 saw a 25.74% increase in Waste Heat Recovery System power YoY, with a capacity addition of 43 MW.
  • As a part of our green energy portfolio, UltraTech currently has 555 MW of Green Energy capacity.
  • Reduced lead distance for procurement of raw materials through local suppliers at various units
  • Jointly developing a project to implement Coolbrook’s RotoDynamic HeaterTM (RDH) technology in one of UltraTech’s cement manufacturing units.
  • The jetty attached to Ratnagiri Cement Works, a grinding unit of UltraTech, successfully completed its transition to using 100% renewable energy for its operations.
  • We have also completed lab scale trials for making green concrete with high substitution (50-70 %) of SCM for making concrete up to M40 Grades. Currently, we are conducting pilot scale trials at various RMC locations to optimise their actual performance. These new grades will lead to a lower specific CO2 emission thus helping us in our journey towards net-zero commitment.
