Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited — A shining star in the green growth of Indian cement industry

The next decades in India are dedicated to an unprec- edented growth to be unleashed by rising middle class, their reasonable expectations of improved lifestyle and commitments of democratically elected governments to provide better-quality infrastructure to its people. This will be witnessed by an overwhelming migration in India from rural settings to an urban infrastructure. The entire construction value chain is at the core of this growth story. Tapping this growth opportunity while taking care of people, profit and planet would be a right business approach to maximize the positive impacts on human, natural, financial, intellectual, manufactured and social & relationship capital. Fortunately, India Cement Industry, a key player of this construction value chain, understands and takes action towards minimizing the environmental and social impacts. Recognized as the most energy efficient globally, cement industry in India is taking actions on GHG mitigation and use of waste materials in the cement manufacturing process to reduce the use of natural minerals. Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited, a leading cement producer of India, has been ranked No. 1 in the cement world by CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) on their business readiness for a low carbon transition. The report highlights that Dalmia Cement comes first by a distance, performing well on a number of metrics including Scope 1 emissions intensity, with both the lowest current level and the steepest decline. The company makes the most use of alternative materials and has the best emissions profile against IEA 2-degrees targets out to 2030. Dalmia Bharat is a water positive cement group only company globally to have committed to both RE 100 and EP 100 ambitious campaigns.
