ABB India achieves around 82 per cent reduction in own GHG emissions across all manufacturing locations

ABB India has announced that its sustainability initiatives have cumulatively led to an 81.6 per cent 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 realisation of RE100 across its five manufacturing locations. In the process, all five ABB India owned manufacturing locations in the country have been certified as ‘Green Factory Buildings’ by the Indian Green Building Council after a rigorous evaluation of multiple parameters such as innovation in design, environmental categories, resource conservation and indoor environment quality. The company has also enhanced water recyclability by around 12 per cent versus the 2019 baseline and aims to become water neutral/positive across all locations by 2025.  Currently, the company recycles about 95 per cent of the waste generated across all their facilities to realise the company-wide long-term sustainability targets of zero waste to landfill.
