With the SBTi, Indus Towers Limited (formerly Bharti Infratel Limited), India's top provider of telecom tower infrastructure, has committed to having net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050.
Indus has started a campaign called "Zero Goal Hai" that is inspired by its ESG vision and lays out how the entire company and its value chain will work together to achieve goals set across the three pillars of environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and robust governance – making the business sustainable.
'Zero Goal Hai' (literally, 'zero is the target') is a deliberate word play to promote 'zero' as a matter of pride - zero emissions, zero harm, zero waste, zero bias, and zero tolerance to non-compliance, as Indus Towers improve lives through sustainable digital infrastructure and services.
Prachur Sah, Managing Director and CEO, Indus Towers, said, "Our inherently inclusive business model fosters co-creation of value for all stakeholders. We strive for customer satisfaction through continuous innovation, guided by the principles of exemplary governance, community strengthening, and environmental accountability. With our commitment to decarbonise our business operations, we have joined the race to net-zero by 2050. We aspire to not only be the industry leader, but to take the industry forward with our ESG commitment."
The company has established medium- to long-term ESG commitments based on its priorities and the opinions of its stakeholders. Long-term goals for Indus' Environment pillar include reducing its GHG emissions and reaching net-zero status by 2050, improving resource efficiency by reducing, reusing, and recycling 100% of trash, and raising the proportion of renewable energy. Indus will accomplish this by a number of initiatives, such as diesel optimisation, the adoption of green energy alternatives across its business activities, and the use of energy-efficient procedures and infrastructure.
