Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We have been using VALUE of purchased goods to measure till now. This year onward, we are recording QUANTITY of each of the purchased goods. This will enable us reduce our emission as the per kg. emission is expected to be lower than per US$.

How We'll Reduce It

We will change our systems so that every invoice that is recorded will have the QUANTITY details (kgs/litres/units) in addition to the VALUE.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from downstream shipping.

How We'll Reduce It

We will shift to sea shipments as much as possible by using better planning and forecasting tools. Only a very select part of our entire product portfolio will be dispatched using Air-Freight.

03

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from overseas business travel.

How We'll Reduce It

Except where critically important, all meetings will be done 'virtually'. Even when travel is absolutely needed, we will 'club' multiple meetings so that we do not have to make extra trips.
