Group Sustainability Goals 2020

We believe that our goals reflect our determination towards a more sustainable future. We focus extensively towards the areas of climate change: energy, greenhouse gases, renewable energy, tree plantation; water; packaging waste and life cycle assessment.

Energy & Climate Change
We aim to reduce our energy consumption and emission impacting climate.
Reduce energy intensity by 50% at GSL vs FY 2011-12 and by 30% at GCE vs FY 2014-15 by improving efficiency. Increase share of electricity from renewable energy sources by 10% at GSL with base year 2015-16. Reduce GHG constituting of scope 1 & 2 by 35% at GSL vs FY 2012-13 & by 25% at GCE vs FY 2014-15. Introduce afforestation programs as climate change mitigation measures and plant 25000 trees at GSL.
Water
We aim to reduce our waste consumption.
Reduce water consumption per metric tonne of production by 80% at GSL with base year 2011-12 & by 50% at GCE with base year 2014-15.
Waste
We aim to generate less waste.
Reduce packaging waste generation by 10% at GSL using process of reduction, recycling and reuse of raw material packaging waste with base year 2015-16. Reduce waste generation by 15% at GCE with base year 2014-15.
Energy & Climate Change
We aim to adopt Life Cycle approach to evaluate potential environmental impacts.
Achieve environmentally sound management framework for products and complete Life Cycle Assessment of 40 products.
