ABB India achieves 82% reduction in own GHG emissions across all manufacturing locations

Share

ABB India today announced that its sustainability initiatives have cumulatively led to an 81.6% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions versus its 2019 baseline. This has been primarily aided by the investment into renewable energy sources and the realization of RE100 across its five manufacturing locations.

All five ABB India-owned manufacturing locations in the country have been certified as ‘Green Factory Buildings’ by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC).

ABB India implemented energy-efficient and innovative solutions in a phased manner across its decades-old locations pan-India making these locations more sustainable. The realization of their RE100 global commitment to eliminate Scope 2 GHG emissions from its operations was achieved with the utilization of renewable electricity. It included green power utilization from in-house solar panels, green power purchase from third parties through power purchase agreements (PPA), and procurement of International Renewable Energy Certificates (IREC).

Catalyzing this green transformation, ABB deployed over 5,000 of its sustainable technology-led products at multiple sites. Other key ABB sustainable solutions deployed across its locations include AI-enabled building automation technology, energy-efficient lighting, HVAC solutions (highest-rated energy-efficient motors and drives), and measurement analytics products.

“We’ve been making concrete efforts towards achieving the 2030 sustainability goals. Double-digit reduction of our GHG emissions, the realization of RE100, and Green factory building certifications for all our manufacturing locations are significant milestones in our journey toward sustainability. They reassure us of the positive impact we can make towards creating a resource-efficient and low carbon future.” said Sanjeev Sharma, country head and managing director, ABB India.
